Summerlands

(3.8/5 based on 3,400+ reviews for 2 attractions)
Things to do: wildlife areas, zoos & aquariums
Head to Summerlands on Philip Island for the chance to see thousands of penguins waddling along the coastline. The Little Penguin--the world's smallest variety of these cute, playful, and endearing creatures--bob onto the shore at sunset for what is known locally as the Penguin Parade. As the penguins shuffle up to their homes in the sand dunes, witness their journey from one of a number of viewing platforms offering comfortable seating, educational information, and refreshments. The coastline is dramatic at any time of day, the rugged rocks of the island and the sea providing ample opportunities to snap photographs. Make your own Summerlands vacation itinerary, with a little help from those that know the place like the back of their hands, by using our Australia travel itinerary planner.

Where to stay

Whereas the protected area of the Summerlands peninsula itself does not offer accommodations, elsewhere on Philip Island you will find a range of lodgings to suit a diverse set of needs. Most options cluster in the north of the island, in the Cowes district. Hotels, RV parks, and apartments line the coastline, offering good sea views and many providing transport services so that you can arrive at Summerlands when the parade begins.
