Phillip Island

Home to the World-Famous Little Penguins

Just ninety minutes from Melbourne lies an oasis of native wildlife, windswept coastlines, and natural wonders.

Connected to the mainland through a bridge from San Remo, Phillip Island is one of Victoria’s most celebrated tourist destinations.

Though Phillip Island is best known for adorable penguin parades, that’s not the only way to find natural beauty in the region. You can also find some of the country’s best surf, spot migrating whales, cuddle koalas, and bird watch some rare coastal seabirds.

When you’re done soaking in nature, we’ll take you to discover the eclectic history of the Phillip Island Grand Prix Circuit, home to the Australian Motorcycle Grand Prix. You don’t have to be an auto lover to appreciate this phenomenal photo opportunity!

Where We Go

Cape Woolamai

Home to the longest beach on Phillip Island, Cape Woolamai is the go-to spot for iconic surf—just ask Chris Hemsworth. Stand on the highest point on Phillip Island for a bird’s eye view of Victoria’s best surfers catching a wave against a backdrop of pink cliffs.

Penguin Parade

An unforgettable experience, the penguin parade has become a must-see for those exploring Victoria. 32,000 Little Penguins reside around the island, and as the sun sets, these adorable seabirds waddle out of the ocean and back home to the safety of their burrows. You don’t want to miss this magical, natural event!

The Nobbies

Located on the western tip of the island, the Nobbies are cobblestone rocks that are home to Australia’s largest colony of fur seals. A boardwalk provides easy access for visitors to view a range of coastal wildlife and waterbirds, while the Blow Hole presents a stunning photo opportunity as waves crash against this eroded cliff edge.

Our Promise To Make Your Day Special

At Victorian Bus Charters, we pride ourselves on offering a great day out with a very simple process.

VBC has all the things you should be looking for in a Bus Company:

TSV Accreditation is a legal requirement and you should always look for an operator that has this. TSV requires their operators to maintain the highest bus safety management standards.

Whether it’s timings, budget, group sizes or tastings, we’re all about being flexible to you and your needs.

Not only that but we’ve got a good knowledge on what works in terms of lunches, how many stops, the best Summer spots to the best selfie shot. You name it, we’ll be able to help with it.

Do you want a bus driver that always looks at the clock and wears high socks and a tie? Didn’t think so! Our drivers love groups and understand what makes a great day out and this is something we pride ourselves on.
