Phillip Island, Australia

Phillip Island is an Australian island located about 140 km (87 mi) south-southeast from Melbourne, Victoria. 
The southern and western coasts of the island lie within the Phillip Island Important Bird Area, so identified by BirdLife International because of its importance in supporting significant populations of Little Penguins, Short-tailed Shearwaters and Pacific Gulls.  In addition, there is a wildlife park where wallabies and kangaroos roam freely amongst the visitors and can be fed by hand. Seal Rocks, at the western end of the island, hosts the largest colony of fur seals in Australia (up to 16,000).
