We had an excellent day with Daniel T as our tour guide. We visited Moonlit Sanctuary feeding the kangaroos which was great we then went to the beach and looked for penguins before going to penguin parade. Daniel T was knowledgable, fun and the whole day was very well organised.

Fabulous Day Trip to Phillip Island
Jan 2020
We had an excellent day trip out to the Moonlit Sanctuary and Phillip Island to visit the Nobbies and of course attend the penguin parade. Yes, you do spend a lot of time on the bus, but part of the appeal of this trip was all the included transportation - we did not rent a car and would not have been able to see these amazing sights without a tour operator. Our guide, Kurn, was funny and knowledgeable and as it was an unintentionally small group, it was a much more intimate experience than I expected for the cost. I would have loved to have spent more time at each stop, but we simply wouldn't have been able to fit in all the different activities if we spent more time at each location. This was the best way to see all the various sights, and I am so grateful to have found Bunyip. Thank you!

Great tour, the penguin parade is a must see
Apr 2019
We took this tour and loved every minute. We got to feed the kangeroos at the moonlit wildlife santury first and then drive down to Phillip Island, taking in the scenery on the way. We were late in the season for the penguins, but they did not dissappoint, it's a lovely sight.

Unique and one of a kind
Tour was very unique and one of it kind. We saw loads of penguins in their natural surroundings. Just This was well worth the tour cost. Other parts of the tour were not that good. Moonlit sanctuary had very few wildlife and was not impressive. Our guide Kurn was very funny and witty and was very knowledgeable. Overall, good experience

Wonderful Day!!
Dec 2019 • Couples
We had the pleasure of receiving Rob as our tour guide and he was entertaining the whole day. The stop at the wildlife sanctuary was a nice bonus as we got to feed some kangaroos and wallabys! Had a nice seaside dinner before heading to see the penguins. Penguin parade was better than we imagined and the upgrade to the guided tour at the parade was well worth it. Highly recommend this excursion!! Thanks for the nice day Rob!

Awesom trio with Courtney from Bunyip tours
It is a truely amazing experience for our family. The guide Courtney from Bunyip travel is lovely and amazing, she is very accomodating, super friendly, knowledgeable. The trip is planned very well, no time wasted. I highly recommend the penguin parade plus underground as you get to stay away from the mass crowd, you get the first class stand to see the penguins march right infront of your eye level. The wallabies and koala experience at philip island is also another big highlight. You get to feed the wallabies and ducks, they are super approachable and friendly. The tour is truely small group with less than 15pax.

Phillip Island Penguin Parade
Nov 2019 • Family
We had a wonderful day going to Phillip Island. Our day was filled with so much more than just the Penguin Parade. Our guide and driver Rob, was not only knowledgeable but a very entertaining story teller.

Both of my parents were able to have native wildlife encounters at Moonlit Sanctuary, which we will never forget.

Phillip Island is overflowing with spactacular views along the coastline. Pictures don't do it justice.

The Penguin Parade is a must see. The little creatures are a sight to behold.

We would definately recommend Bunyip Tours to freinds and family.

One suggestion would be to have the pick up point updated on your website.

All the best,

Amy from Moruya

Great tour for animal lovers
Oct 2019
This was an amazing trip, it was so much fun to see the kangaroos and wallabees at the moonlit sanctuary and to be able to see sheep shearing and dogs at work at the sheep farm. finally the penguin parade was absolutely fantastic, seeing the little ones walking around. I booked the regular viewing place, and our guide told us where was the best place to sit to see the penguins walk by, but the real show is when walking back to the bus, you can see them up close from the walkways.
