Wildlife - Phillip Island

  Phillip Island is a major breeding ground location for many species of sea birds. Including Masked Boobies, Australasian Gannets, several species of  Terns, Tropic Birds, Wedged tailed Shearwaters and the more rarely seen Kermadec Petrels, white Necked Petrels and Providence Petrels. It is also home for several land based species. The main breeding season is September through to April. Other creatures include the Phillip Island Centipede (large enough to kill young chicks!) and the Phillip Island skink's and Gecko's.
