INTRODUCTION

Two very different attractions and both as delightful as the other! Ride the historic Puffing Billy steam train in the morning and then at sunset, witness the natural phenomenon of the Penguin Parade on Phillip Island.

Rainforests, colourful birds, quaint villages in the hills and a ride on an old steam train affectionately called 'Puffing Billy' makes up your morning with Gray Line. Enjoy an Aussie style Bush Billy Tea with our compliments in the Dandenong Ranges National Park and spend time in beautiful Sassafras known for its local craft and antiques. In the afternoon, re-join the coach for your native wildlife experience of spotting koalas in their natural habitat at Koala Conservation Centre and seeing the Penguin Parade at sunset on Summerland Beach at Phillip Island.
