Melbourne: Peninsula Nature Private Day Trip with Dinner

3. Melbourne: Peninsula Nature Private Day Trip with Dinner

This all inclusive tour begins with your driver and tour guide picking you up from your location. The drive will take you along the scenic route which follows the curves of Port Phillip Bay, until we reach our first destination - Dendy St Beach. After a short photo session at the beach your luxury, air-conditioned, leather seated vehicle will take you further along the scenic coastal route where you will experience the breath-taking views of the bay on side and be amazed at the beautiful architecture of the various palatial villas on the other side. There will be opportunities to stop for photos. Our first key Peninsula destination is the Moonlit Sanctuary, about 60km from Melbourne's CBD. You will spend 90 minutes here enjoying the various wildlife that live at the sanctuary. You will see and hear Australian native animals such as the koala, kangaroo, dingo, wombat and many others. There are animal sessions for you to enjoy where trained wildlife staff discuss the lives and habits of various native animals. Our final destination is The Eagle, where you will fly high in a chairlift and the end of which you will be invited to enjoy an Australian picnic dinner in a bush setting. To burn those newly acquired calories, we go for a short bushwalk to a lookout where you will have great view of the Peninsula, before being chauffeured back to your destination.

Wonderful experience, I recommend this tour to everyone which allows you to come into close contact with the nature of Melbourne's surroundings. The Moonlit Shrine is a spectacular temple, I recommend going there early in the morning to have hungry kangaroos chasing you. The koala experience is also not to be missed. Finally, the penguin parade will leave you speechless. Our guide Bill was the icing on the cake, spectacular in his way of being and leaving a few extra minutes when needed.

Very cool trip with an easygoing and fun guide. Definitely take a sweater or jacket with you (even in summer!!). In the evenings it gets significantly colder than in Melbourne. All in all, to be recommended.

Very well organised, only thing was we got less time to see the penguins. But that’s on the tourists who were late in the beginning. Otherwise it was very fun and enjoyable

Started later than planned but guide was super knowledgeable and enthusiastic and ensured everyone was happy, made super everyone got the best out of the experience

superb day with beautiful weather very well organized.
