Our main purpose for going to Phillip Island was to see the famous Penguin Parade which happens at sunset everyday.
Since we still had time before the penguins arrived we drove to the Noobies Boardwalk. On the way there we saw this kangaroo on the roadside. We stopped the van and took pictures while Joey (the kangaroo) patiently posed for us.
We didn’t get to see any Australian fur seals, dolphins or whales when we were there.
We did see the most gorgeous sunset.
Every night at sunset Little Penguins (smallest species of penguins in the world) come out of the water and make their way across the beach to the sand dune burrows which they call home. Since photography is strictly forbidden from the stands where we sat or anywhere else the penguins were this is the only picture I can show you to give you an idea what the Little Penguins look like.
To be honest I had a hard time seeing the Little Penguins since the beach was very dimly lit and the waddle of penguins came out in small groups of four or five at a time. It was only when we walked back to the entrance that I saw the penguins clearly at the sides of the walkway.
To give you an idea you can watch this video which was much brighter than the night we were there.
We had to make do with adorable stuffed penguins.
