“If you are short on time and are looking for a tour which leaves in the afternoon, this is a great option to tick off the Australian wildlife bucket list while in Melbourne. The little penguins are super cute and you’ll be guaranteed to see them as they go out to sea fishing every day and have to bring home their catch for the kids at sunset” – Cameron – One Stop Adventures Travel Expert
