    Fiona was our guide/driver for the day and did an exceptional job. It is a 2 hour drive from Melbourne. We stopped at Moonlit Wildlife Sanctuary, and a working farm on Phillip Island where we saw a sheep shearing demonstration. We also had a brief stop in Currie. The Penguin Parade was great and we had VIP tickets so we got a personal tour with the ranger and a private viewing box with binoculars. Fiona did a great job driving, and got us all back to our hotels safely.

    Had such an amazing day. We saw koalas wombats and even a Tasmanian devil. We also went to farm house where we could see how the settlers used to live. Very interesting.
