Phillip Island Penguin Parade

Information

Watch Little Penguins dash home across the sand at dusk at Phillip Island Nature Parks' Penguin Parade. Explore boardwalks after dark to see, smell and hear these penguins in the colony, greeting neighbours, partners and their chicks. While you wander, keep an eye out for resident wildlife including Swamp Wallabies, Eastern Barred Bandicoots, Cape Barren Geese and Short-tailed Shearwaters.

Every visit to the Penguin Parade protects nature for wildlife. Visitors support Phillip Island Nature Parks vital research, education and conservation projects that ensure Phillip Island's native habitats thrives into the future for both wildlife and us to enjoy.
