We went on October 11, the opening time was 6:45, and the actual appearance time of the penguin was 7:30, so we could not go so early. Get off the plane and navigate directly to Penguin Parade. It's almost 4 p.m. and there's no one. There was a comment before that we entered the cashier's office from Gate 3, but because nobody was there, we did it from Gate 1. Because the time is too early, so go to Nobbies center to visit, and then see that there are tickets inside, silly buy a few, no sense, turn around and come out again, before you go to Seal Rock. It rained that day and the wind was huge. I prepared my raincoat in advance, so there was no pressure. The road of Seal Rock was very beautiful. But I only saw a seal lying on the shore in the distance, motionless, dead or alive. After visiting, I went to the seascape restaurant to eat. At 6:30 we went to the penguin paradise and queued in and ordered the underground vip. It was very wise. Because of the heavy rain and wind on that day, people shivered in the stands (as if they had raincoats, but they were very thin disposable raincoats). We sat idly in the ground, and the staff would come out with the specimen of the penguin and touch it for everybody. I thought the hair of the penguin was hard, but I didn't think it was soft and lovely. About 7:45, I saw a few little penguins shaking their heads, underground VIP angle is good, with the penguins are eyeing, so you can take a careful look at their naive appearance, because the small penguins are too small, so in the stands, you should only see black and black back hair, so we recommend you order underground vip, rain and wind, see clearly.
Philip Island is less than 100 kilometers southeast of Melbourne. We drove there by ourselves. It took us more than an hour to get there. We stayed there for two days. The whole island has complete supporting facilities and the restaurants by the sea are very leisurely. Tickets for all the attractions on the island, including Penguin nesting, Koala Center, Churchill Island farm and Antarctic Pavilion, are a paradise for animal enthusiasts. The whole island is not big. It can be reached within twenty minutes by car. The scenery is very beautiful. From time to time, many lovely animals, including ducks, geese and sheep, emerge from the roadside driving. Phillip Island's nickname is also Penguin Island, come to this must not forget to watch the penguins nest at night, the little penguins are super cute, step by step ashore, this inside can not be photographed, see for a long time, because we do not need to consider returning to Melbourne, has been seeing the last, really lovely little people sprouted. We should also pay attention to increasing clothing, sometimes it is very cold.
It's great for the penguins to return to their nests, but they went to Taikeng Daddy for a one-day tour in the area reported by the beehive. There were three places to pick up people. It was almost 12 o'clock when they returned to the city. The little penguins were so budding that they were shaking their heads and walking very fast. Unfortunately, they couldn't take pictures.
On Australian National Day, we visited Penguin Island. The island is small, the population is small and the tourists are large. The island's living facilities are complete, there are two major supermarkets in Australia, National Day discounts, super cheap. Here, we take a helicopter to overlook the beautiful scenery. Here we visit the aquarium. Here we watch the penguins nest. A day of leisure.
Phillip Island, which is called Penguin Island by the Chinese people, and when I came here five years ago, except for the different weather, every shop on the street remained unchanged. Every shop on the street recalled that when night fell, the little penguin would start his journey home from shore on the sea, for fear of impairing the penguin's eyesight, there would be no flash and my camera was too technical Taicai.
I didn't expect to see little penguins so close in Australia. I always thought that penguins should be in the coldest place. Now penguins are loved and protected by human beings. They also bring people a lot of fun. Babies of penguins are full of germination. When night comes, they will bravely swim back to land from the sea, swing their buttocks and slowly walk back to their homes. Garden, lovely.
Melbourne's Hillip Island is the world's smallest Penguin blue paradise, but also children's favorite. At nine o'clock in the evening, swaying back to the nest, Australia's animals are so sprouting? Environmental reasons can not shoot the scene, can only cite science and education pictures. It's worth going.
We buy VIP stands. Penguins will go ashore from the beach between VIP and the common platform (not too far from the straight line), then walk all the way to VIP platform, and finally walk down the trestle a little deeper. Their nests are in the swarms of grasslands on the island. When you drive to parade, you will find that there are stacks of grasslands on both sides of the road. In order to avoid natural enemies, penguins always have to wait until after dark to land. The flash point will affect them. So in order to ensure the safety of penguins, whether you are professional or not, you can turn off the flash lights and never take photos. If you want to take photos, you can do so.

At sunset, walk along the wooden trestle road to the seaside, waiting for the wonder of the world's smallest penguin's homing. At dusk, penguins can be seen flocking ashore on the waves, swaying their smaller bodies vigilantly, looking for their nests. The nests are scattered in small soil caves under the trestle road or on small mounds.
Philip Island is not small. It is 30 kilometers long from east to west and 10 kilometers wide from north to south. The sun here is very industrious, and it doesn't set slowly until about nine o'clock, so the sunshine at six o'clock in the evening is still brilliant, the sea is blue, the beach is golden, and the red-billed seagull flies up and down beside the tourists, stirring up the happy atmosphere on the island. Philip Island is also famous for a small Genie living on the island: penguins. Philip Island is also called Penguin Island by the Chinese. Melbourne itself has designated an ecological reserve for penguin habitats on the island, separate from human activities. The reserve has a small penguin Museum and a staircase-shaped Penguin viewing area, which only receives 500,000 visitors a year. After entering the reserve, people's activities are strictly restricted, they can only walk in designated areas, and they are not allowed to take photographs, so as not to frighten the elves and hurt their eyes by strong flashes. The viewing area is like a simple stand facing the vast South Pacific Ocean. Penguins go out every day before dawn, plunge into the sea before sunrise to hunt, and come ashore to their homes after nightfall. This is God's timetable. Adult penguins foraging in the sea not only need to feed themselves, but also bring enough food to feed their children. For this reason, they have to swim 100 kilometers in the sea every day, not to play, but to work.
