1 day Peninsula Discovery tour with penguins - Mornington
Our 1 day Peninsula Discovery tour with wildlife and penguins showcases both Victoria's breathtaking natural treasures as well as its man- made attractions.
Along the way to the Peninsula marvel at the spectacular views at Shelley Bay's Millionaires Walk and see where the rich and famous live.
On arrival you will experience the stunning Point Nepean National Park right at the tip of the Peninsula. It was closed to the public for more than 100 years, but you can now walk through it or delve into a remarkable military history that dates back to the 1880s.
We visit the prestigious Mantons Creek winery and enjoy a fresh picnic lunch with a complimentary glass of wine.
We explore the famous strawberry fields of Sunny ridge farm and lose ourselves at Ashcombe Maze and Lavender Gardens, Australia's oldest and largest maze and search for the secret gnome treasure.
We witness the dramatic bay and coastal views from the Mornington Peninsula's best lookout at Arthurs Seat before continuing our journey to Moonlit Sanctuary Wildlife Conservation Park where we get up close and personal with the friendly residents. Here you can hand feed kangaroos and wallabies, have your photo taken with a koala and learn about the conservation of these loveable native animals. The eco certified sanctuary also showcases some lesser known but equally adorable endangered species including the Southern Bettong, Eastern Quolls and rare Fluffy Gliders. From here we travel to Summerland beach on Phillip Island for the nightly penguin parade. Home to Victoria's largest colony of little penguins, Summerland beach provides a spectacular backdrop to the world famous penguin parade. Watch as hundreds of little penguins make their way across the beach and go home for the night.
Return to Melbourne is late evening.
