Wildlife Delights at Maru Park




Everyone knows all about the penguins when it comes to the Phillip Island Tours but the dazzling gem of an island offers so much more in the way of exciting wildlife. The lush green forests, the sparkling waters and the white sand beaches are a veritable playground for those who want to swim, snorkel, catch the penguin parade and enjoy all the pleasures of Australian island life.

Cuddle Koalas
Just prior to reaching Phillip Island you will find Maru Park.  It is one of the best spots for children and adults alike who want to get up close and personal with the locals. You can cuddle a sleepy eyed koala, hand feed a pale kangaroo and have a chat with the brightly plumed parrots. Maru Park truly does boast the very best when it comes to a diverse range of animals and all the Australian favourites are there. Wombats, Tasmanian devils, wallabies and more can be found in the colourful park of Philips Island.

Tee Off in Pirate Style
Yet it’s not all about wildlife on the Phillip Island Tour and those swinging by Maru Park can also tee off in
style and fun. Pirate Pete’s Mini Golf Adventure takes you across 18 holes of perfectly crafted putting challenges including thundering waterfalls, goldmines and life size statues of Captain Jack Sparrow. Every year the park dons its patches and parrots and throws a pirate festival peppered with dress up, face painting, temporary tattoos and plenty of fun and games.

Home Cooked Meals
After all the excitement of mini golf and talking to the animals it may be time for a spot of lunch. The Homestead Bistro is all about good quality seasonal food served in unpretentious and child friendly settings. Families can order up a storm with an incredibly sprawling menu offering everything from towering burgers to seafood platters, bright and zesty salads, chunks of garlic bread and sweet deserts to deliver a final flourish.

Dinosaur Digs
Whilst adults linger over lunch, children can soak up the fun in the dinosaur room. The indoor playground is great for leaving the little ones to run around and learn all they can about the Jurassic beasts and dig for ancient fossils.

Lashings of Fun
Maru Park is all about having lashings of fun in a laid back environment filled with wildlife, play and learning. Phillip Island Tours can show you a world of excitement both outdoors and in. Family memories are made on discovering the bounty, running off steam and exploring the great outdoors of Maru Park and the Phillip Island Tour.
