Philip Island


New World Explorer

  • Phillip Island is located just off Australia’s southern coast, which is about two hours’ drive from Melbourne.
  • The landscape is a natural paradise, featuring outstanding coastal scenery (lots and lots of sandy beaches) and thick bushland.
  • Its most popular tourist attraction is Penguin Parade; the home base for the smallest penguin in the world, the Little penguins.
  • Declared Victoria’s first National Surfing Reserve, Phillip Island has endless coastal hot spots to choose from.
  • It is a perfect day trip from Melbourne, either with a one-day trip or a weekend experience.

One of Victoria’s major tourist draws, the Penguin Parade showcases the parade of little penguins on the island. This colony of creatures are the smallest species of penguin in the entire world, with Phillip Island being one of the only places you can see these creatures in the wild. The colony spends the majority of their day swimming in Victoria’s deep waters, hunting for fish and other small creatures. However, after sunset, the herd of penguins venture back to their nesting ground, which lies right on Phillip Island’s Summerland Beach region. (all photos unedited from Canon 6D mark 2, the last photo is from internet as photographing penguins is forbidden)

Looks like the promised land brochures. 

Those are cute penguins. 

 

Are there sharks in that beach?

 

I love the sunset photo too. I live on mountains  so we have late sunrise and early sunset in here which I dont see because  its covered by mountains.
