Naturaliste Tours - From Mornington Peninsula

Naturaliste Tours is a nature-based, small guided tour company operating on French Island. Experienced, local guides share their knowledge of the history, natural beauty, abundant wildlife and unique flora and fauna found in this undiscovered destination.

French Island is unique. The island runs completely off the grid with no mains water or electricity, there is virtually no traffic, and famously, Kylie Minogue once owned a holiday home here. The 170-square-kilometre island is two-thirds national park and travellers looking for a nature-based experience can travel around this rugged, unspoilt island with Naturaliste Tours - all just a stone's throw from Phillip Island and the Mornington Peninsula.

Passengers travel in an air conditioned, purpose-built off-road tour vehicle, perfect for accessing hidden spots. There is much to see - over 230 bird species and mammals, such as the iconic koala and echidna, birds of prey, vast array of plants including unique orchids(in season) and historic buildings. There is plenty of time for photo stops, wildlife encounters and scenic outlooks.

French Island is only one hour from Melbourne and a 15-minute fast cat ride from Phillip Island and the Mornington Peninsula.
