Puffing Billy Steam Railway – Penguin Parade (Phillip Island)

At noon, starting from downtown Melbourne, our tour bus led you to the platform of the Puffing Billy. Hear the bell hum, the oldest steam train will take you through the forest of Mt. Dandenong. The Puffing Billy is one of Australia's oldest steam train. The original puffing Billy Railway was built in the early twentieth Century for the transportation of goods. At a total length of 29 km, it was officially changed in 1975 for sightseeing.

After half an hour of steam train experience, we will continue to Phillip Island, 128 km southeast of Melbourne. It is also known as the Penguin Island, which is the island of the world's smallest penguin species Little penguin (Eudyptula minor). Phillip Island is one of the most famous tourist attractions in Melbourne and even Australia. It attracts millions of domestic and foreign tourists every year to see these rare penguins to the shore. Along the way, you can enjoy the rural scenery of Melbourne, by stay away from the busy city, you can relax both physically and mentally.

In the evening we will enter the Penguin Parade, sitting in the viewing platform for the penguins homing ashore. Then you'll witness the magical moment of the penguins' return from the observation track and learn how they can recognize their way back to the nest.
