Phillip Island Nature Parks (the Nature Parks) is a unique self-funded conservation organisation that operates complimentary ecotourism experiences on Phillip Island. Revenue generated through ecotourism activities is invested into vital conservation, research, and education programs.
We’re part of the UNESCO Western Port Biosphere Reserve and encompass wildlife sanctuaries, wetlands, woodlands and breathtaking coastlines which are protected and managed by our world-renowned environmental and research programs.
Habitat within Phillip Island Nature Parks supports significant populations of Little Penguins, hooded plovers, short-tailed shearwaters and other international migratory bird species, and mammals such as koalas, possums, wallabies, Australian fur seals and bats.
The Nature Parks protects a range of plant communities that includes over 330 native species. Sections of the Nature Parks also fall within or are adjacent to wetlands protected under the inter-governmental Ramsar Convention as wetlands of international importance.
We’re dedicated to quality ecotourism experiences and wildlife management and feature the highest number of Advanced Ecotourism accredited types of tours of any tourism operator in Victoria.
