Victoria National Parks
Victoria National Parks - TravelPuppy.com
Phillip Island Nature Reserve, 140 kilometres (87.5 miles) from Melbourne, is famous for its rich wildlife, particularly birds, fairy penguins (which can be seen marching up the beach in the evenings), koalas and fur seals (large colonies of which can be observed at the Seal Rocks Sea Life Centre).

Another famous wildlife sanctuary is in the Wilson’s Promontory National Park, south east of Melbourne on the southern most tip of the Australian mainland.

The Port Campbell National Park, south west of Melbourne, contains some of the most gorgeous and dangerous coastlines in Victoria. It is here that the awesome rock formations, The Twelve Apostles, can be seen from the spectacular Great Ocean Road.
