    We took this tour and loved every minute. We got to feed the kangeroos at the moonlit wildlife santury first and then drive down to Phillip Island, taking in the scenery on the way. We were late in the season for the penguins, but they did not dissappoint, it's a lovely sight.

    Tour was very unique and one of it kind. We saw loads of penguins in their natural surroundings. Just This was well worth the tour cost. Other parts of the tour were not that good. Moonlit sanctuary had very few wildlife and was not impressive. Our guide Kurn was very funny
