Private Tour Penguin Parade
Visiting the Penguin Parade was always a must do when we came to Melbourne. We had a wonderful tour where we were very well looked after by Mr Bill. My wife and me also were able to see the kangaroos not be mistaken for wallabies and koalas at the Australian wildlife farm before a visit to a beautiful winery for cheese and wine. Then onto the Penguin Parade. The penguins are so beautiful and cute and come onto the beach just on sunset. You get a really good view of them on the boardwalk on the way back up to the car. They are so sweet. Bill was able to give us a lot of information about the area and the government buy back so the penguin parade and all their houses can exist. Dinner was a 2 course delight with a glass of local wine. We were happy we weren't with the large bus loads of people and able to relax and take in the scenery. The drive from Melbourne is over 100kms but with all the stops you won't notice. Depending on what time of year you go you will be back at the hotel between 10.30 and midnight. We highly recommend Epicurean Tours for a visit to the Penguins.
