Phillip Island

Antarctic Journey at the Nobbies

Information

Learn stories of conservation, climate resilience and what lives in the deep, with the interactive and immersive experiences at the Antarctic Journey — a joint venture between the Nature Parks and WWF-Australia.

Enjoy scientific discovery with interactive games like feel the freeze and the seafood cafe, identify sea creatures under the microscope and learn the sights and sounds of Antarctic wildlife. Downstairs, immerse yourself in the breathtaking visual and sound experience with floor to ceiling footage of Antarctic wildlife and landscapes. The audio-visual spectacle puts you right in the heart of the action with whales, seals, sharks and more.

Place yourself right in the action with augmented reality to finish your journey. Stand on an ice floe and see yourself up on the big screen, reaching out to stroke a seal or pat a penguin.

The Antarctic Journey closes approximately two hours before sunset every day of the year to protect the native wildlife living in the Summerland peninsula.

Every visit helps to protect nature for wildlife.
