We like to keep this tour nice and simple with loads of sights and adventure along the way. We’ll leave after lunch and head straight down to Phillip Island. Once there we’ll visit the Koala Conservation Centre, explore Cowes leaving time for dinner and perhaps have a wander along the pier, Enjoy the fabulous cliff top boardwalks at the Nobbies and then head to the penguins. Simple and magical all at the same time.
