Departing Melbourne, travel first to one of Melbourne's most colourful attractions, the Brighton Beach Boxes via St Kilda. Take a brief stop here for a wonderful photo opportunity.

Next up is the award-winning Moonlit Sanctuary Wildlife Conservation Park to learn about and interact with a wide range of Australian animals. Hand feed kangaroos, emus and wallabies, and find out about the extensive range of conservations programs run here to ensure the survival of numerous less common species including Tasmanian Devils, Southern Hairy Nosed Wombats, and many more. Also included in your visit here is the 'Conservation in Action' wildlife show.

Explore the rugged coastline at the Nobbies and look out for the offshore seals at Seal Rocks.

And then it is onwards to the main event, where just after dark every night the world's smallest penguins waddle ashore after spending the day fishing out at sea. You will be truly enchanted as the stars of the show emerge from the surf and pass right before your eyes on their journey back to their homes. Your guide will ensure you are able to get the very best vantage point to enjoy the nightly spectacle that is the Penguin Parade.
