General Questions:

  1. Is there are minimum age requirement? 
    There is no minimum age but we do not offer child fares so every passenger is considered an adult. 

     

  2. What sort of clothing should I wear? 
    Phillip Island has been said to have “four seasons in four hours” but sometimes you may experience all of these seasons in an hour so come prepared for a cooler climate. It is easier to take off layers than be cold. Remember where there are seals and penguins it can get cold! Even in summer. Wear loose clothing to be comfortable and wear flat covered in shoes so you will enjoy walking in nature.
     

  3. What happens if the weather is bad? 
    If the weather is bad you will experience it – hot and cold, wet and dry. This tour is all about getting close to nature. We will do our best to visit sheltered areas (the value of a local guide) and utilise the indoor areas at the Parks if desired, but come dressed for getting into nature
