Guide to Seeing the Phillip Island Penguin Parade

Guide to Seeing the Phillip Island Penguin Parade

If you are in the Melbourne, Australia area and you are looking for a fun and unique part-day excursion to enjoy, then the Penguin Parade on Phillip Island may be just what you are looking for. On this small stretch of coastline in Southern Australia, the world’s smallest penguin is the area’s biggest attraction. Because of their small size and relatively clumsy disposition on land, the Phillip Island penguins spend the majority of their time at sea. However, they do need to come back to land each day to rest and feed their young. Smartly, they do this at night when the eyesight of the birds of prey in the area is less sharp and the penguins are more protected.
