Meet the world’s smallest (and cutest) penguins at the world-famous Penguin Parade, immerse yourself in the interactive world of the Antarctic Journey at the Nobbies Centre, or get up close with one of Australia’s largest fur seal colonies on our Seal Cruise. Slow the pace a little and say g’day to the koalas at the Koala Reserve or escape to another time at Churchill Island.
Approximately 20% of the island is managed by the Nature Parks, including 4.7kms of boardwalks, 38 viewing areas and 22 shoreline access points, 42kms of walking paths and tracks for our community and visitors to enjoy.
Explore the range of walks across the Nature Parks at our free to visit recreational areas, including the Nobbies boardwalks. Discover rugged coastal cliff-tops, wander through mangroves and internationally significant wetlands, and look for native birds and mammals on a woodland walk.
Phillip Island's last remaining penguin colony has nearly doubled in 20 years thanks to extensive protection and habitat rehabilitation.
