What will I do on my Puffing Billy, Moonlit Sanctuary and Penguins Day Tour?

Depart Melbourne & travel eastwards to the foothills of the Dandenong Ranges where you’ll step back in time with a memorable journey on the historic Puffing Billy Steam Train. Maintained in mint condition by dedicated volunteers, the century-old steam train still runs on its own mountain track between Belgrave and Gembrook, through the heart of the delightful Sherbrooke Forest.

Alighting from the train, we’ll travel onwards to the multi-award winning Moonlit Sanctuary Wildlife Conservation Park. Here, we enjoy a guided wildlife walk where we have the opportunity to meet and hand-feed many species of native Australian animals. Learn about iconic species such as kangaroos, koalas, emus & wallabies, as well as some of our lesser known favourites including quolls, owls, bandicoots & Tasmanian devils.

Arriving on Phillip Island, we’ll visit Point Grant from where you can take in spectacular panoramic views of The Nobbies & Seal Rocks while strolling the coastal boardwalks.

And then it’s onwards to the main event, where just after dark every night the world’s smallest penguins waddle ashore after spending the day fishing out at sea. You’ll be truly enchanted as the stars of the show emerge from the surf and pass right before your eyes on their journey back to their homes. Your guide will ensure you are able to get the very best vantage point to enjoy the Penguin Parade.

A terrific way to see so much!

Our day of sightseeing was overloaded with interesting & exciting inclusions, We loved the train journey on Puffing Billy and our guide Paul gave us an informative & highly entertaining tour of the fauna park before we travelled on to Phillip Island for the penguins! So many laughs with Paul, who was fabulous company throughout the day. Great value and great times!
