Watch them up close as they waddle from the water and cross the beach to reach their burrows in the sand dunes.

You will also get the opportunity to meet native wildlife like wallabies and kangaroos, look for koalas up in their gum tree homes and see the seals basking in the late sunlight around the island, to discover what makes Phillip Island such a special place.
