PENGUINS FOOD AND WINE JOURNEY


Only an hour from Melbourne, is the Moonlit Sanctuary, Wildlife Conservation Park.

You can wander through 10 hectares of bushland meeting endangered species, feeding kangaroos and wallabies, enjoying encounters with colourful birds, reptiles, dingoes and many other animals.

This is an optional event of the tour and if chosen includes a close encounter experience with a Koala.

Next stop is Purple Hen Vineyard and Winery which is a favoured winery on the South Gippsland Wine trail. You will enjoy a tasting and a cheese platter and soak in the amazing views from this family owned winery. All wine is produced from estate grown fruit, vintage and varietal in character. The wines from these vintages are gaining national and some international recognition as excellent quality, cool climate table wines of distinction.


We leave Purple Hen to await the extraordinary arrival of the little penguins from the beach. You will view this event from Penguins Plus Viewing Platform, located in an area to provide a closer look of the penguins on parade and a more personalised experience. Rangers at Penguins Plus will talk about the marvel of world’s smallest penguins and their fascinating lives.

Experience that electrifying moment as you spot the first little penguins emerging from the sea and waddling along a Phillip Island beach at dusk. The daily parade of little penguins draws thousands of visitors from
around the globe every year. Line the observation boardwalks at Phillip Island Nature Park at dusk to see them race up Summerland Beach to their burrows. Bring warm clothing year-round, as the nights on the beach can
be cool.


Relax as you dine in one of the best restaurants on Phillip Island with dinner at Watermark Restaurant, Silverwater Resort. This is a 2 course menu to show thebeautiful seasonal produce of the area with wine from the regions.
