Journey between two of Victoria's most loved tourist attractions - the Penguin Parade on Phillip Island and Wilsons Promontory National Park at the southernmost tip of mainland Australia with Inverloch right in the middle.
You'll uncover much more than these two major sights as you wind your way along the Bunurong Coastal Drive for sweeping ocean views and unique rocky outcrops,before you reach the breathtakingly spectacular Wilsons Prom.
When you've bid the little penguins farewell and depart the Penguin Parade and Phillip Island, stopping off in the pretty fishing village of San Remo on the Melbourne side of the bridge to the island. Time your stop-off to catch the 12pm daily pelican feeding at the San Remo pier. From San Remo, take the B420 to the Anderson roundabout. Turn right onto the B460 and follow the road past Kilcunda and its tempting general store until you reach Wonthaggi. Pause for long enough in Wonthaggi to tour the State Coal Mine to discover life underground in the 1900s.
From Wonthaggi the route takes a scenic detour along the C435 to Cape Paterson and the start of the Bunurong Coastal Drive, a unique stretch of coastal road featuring sweeping ocean views and dramatic rocky outcrops. The road stretches 14 kilometres between Cape Paterson and Inverloch, your destination.
