We booked our stay at a place called Amaroo Caravan Park, so we weren't sure what to expect for our first night on the road trip. It ended up being a quaint little place where people buy little cottages in the park and it sort of acts like a shore house like the one we have in Wildwood. We didn't actually spend the night in one of these, as we stayed in the dorms that were available, but they looked so cute and were the perfect distance away from all of the attractions on Phillip Island. We had two bunk beds and luckily no roommate this time, so it was nice to just have the three of us in the room for the night.
Once we got settled we went back to the animal park. We bought entry tickets and also bought the "koala experience" option in which we actually got to pet a koala! We also were able to go into the kangaroo park and feed them, as well as pet and take pictures with them. The park also had dingos, wombats, wallabies, tasmanian devils, peacocks, emus, donkeys, llamas, and sheep to see. It was a once in a lifetime experience!
Next, we went to nobbies head for some cool views off of the island of the water and the seals that inhabited the land. We ate dinner and then finally, we went to the penguin parade on the southwestern coast and saw the little penguins come in from the water at sunset. They were so cute, but no photography was allowed, as that would scare them. Phillip Island is the only place to see this species on penguin, so it also was an awesome experience. After the parade we headed back to our dorm for some rest and to pack our bags for the morning.
