Conveniently located near the city of Melbourne, Phillip Island attracts more than three million travelers each year. The opportunity to view penguins in their natural habitat is the main draw. Each evening at dusk, visitors crowd the amphitheater above Summerland Beach to view the penguins parading home to their nesting areas. From wallabies, wombats, kangaroos and koalas to large colonies of fur seals, the island is known for its other animal attractions too. Consistently good surf conditions also make Phillip Island a great place to ride the waves. Other popular activities include hiking, biking, fishing and sailing.
