What you'll do

Magnificent scenery. Unique wildlife. Blissful tranquillity. You’ll get all this and more on our Phillip Island experience. PI is a popular holiday destination but we stay away from the crowds. This is your opportunity to experience the real Australia: rugged, beautiful and unspoilt. We start our day at Cape Woolamai, taking on of Australia's premier coastal hikes. We'll circumnavigate the cape on a journey including a world-famous surf beach, spectacular rock formations and a diverse array of wildlife. Phillip Island is home to kangaroos, koalas, wallabies, penguins and echidnas. The hike is around 6km in distance with gentle hills so it's suitable for anyone with at least average fitness. As we hike, I'll share info about the historical, natural and geological history of the area. Wait until your hear about the birds that fly here from Alaska! Lunch at one of the island's best cafes (bring cash or card) will be followed by a once in a lifetime opportunity to see Australia's cutest resident, the koala, in the local wildlife sanctuary. You can also hand-feed kangaroos and see dingos, emus and several other native animals. Phillip Island is only 90 mins from Melbourne, significantly closer than other popular hiking locations such as the Grampians and Wilsons Prom (3+ hours) Join us for an unforgettable day out in a small group of fellow nature lovers :)

Rich & Team

In 2017, after spending a lifetime exploring Melbourne and beyond, I quit my corporate job to become an experience host. It was one of the best decisions of my life - I love this job! Over the last three years our team has grown to include co-hosts Mike, Shana, Toby, Chloe and Matt. Together, through our commitment to providing world class experiences, we're proud to have become the #1 rated host team in Melbourne. Our adventures have been carefully curated by us, for you. You'll see amazing views, learn about history, geology and wildlife, try our delicious homemade snacks, and most importantly have a whole lot of fun. Ours is a small family business.
