    Last year Phillip Island Nature Parks underwent significant works to upgrade their Penguins Plus premium viewing platform and an exciting new development from the upgrade is the construction of the world's first Underground covered viewing facility (which the above picture captures perfectly). Protected from the elements, it is the perfect spot to watch the penguins close-up at eye-level. For everyone's comfort and safety, maximum capacity for this option is 70 people. A dedicated Ranger is on-hand to provide information and answer any questions. A television screen will let you know once penguins have started to arrive on the beach. As a bonus, Underground Penguins Plus also has access to Penguins Plus (the platform directly above Underground).

    Guests will enjoy extended time at The Nobbies for dinner (own expense) and enjoy the beautiful coastline scenery looking out onto Bass Strait. The wonderful boardwalk also allows guests to spot penguins' burrows and see if any are home!
