Welcome to Dianne's Venture Tours Phillip Island. We are a family-owned boutique tour company, offering only small private tours and we aim to provide you with a tour experience that will leave you with a WOW in your memories of our lovely area of Phillip Island and beyond.

We specialise in small groups, private tours, tailored and unique experiences mainly in around the Phillip Island area including the Bass Coast, South Gippsland and further afield including Wilsons Promontary and the area around the Prom. The vision of Dianne Ray, the owner, was built upon the love of travel and adventure, good wine, tasty culinary delights, the outdoors and meeting people.

We provide an array of tours ranging from winery tours, brewery tours, food tours, wildlife and nature tours, family fun tours and special experiences, such as scenic helicopter flights around Phillip Island or a seal cruise. You will be in the hands of our owner/guide/driver Dianne, who lives on Phillip Island, and enjoys nothing more than meeting and interacting with new people while sharing all the history and background for what you will be seeing on the day.

Dianne's Venture Tours Phillip Island ensures that each tour is customised around the needs and interests as it’s in our best interest to ensure your private touring experience with us exceeds your expectations.

We love the small group experiences; small groups give you the opportunity to get to know each guest without the chaos of dozens of travellers with a minumum of 2 guest and a maximum of only 11 guests on our tours we can guarantee you won’t be lost in the crowd. (We can take up to 24 guests if you are a large group). We do prefer the smaller groups.

Our vehicle is a very comfortable Mercedes Valente people mover (maximum 7 passengers) and is an ideal way to travel in comfort and take in the scenery.

We do ensure a high quality business by being a Victorian Accredited Tourism Business and an Accredited ATAP (Australian Tourism Accredited Program) operator  with a Sustainable Tourism Accreditation and this is under the Quality Tourism Framework. We are a COVID Clean Practising Business. Our drivers hold appropriate licenses and adhere to transport guidelines.

Join us for an adventure through Phillip Island, Bass Coast, South Gippsland and the Wilsons Promontary regions, exploring and tasting the best of Victoria has to offer! See our wildlife, spectacular coastlines, pristine beaches and taste our local produce, cool climate wines and more.

Family friendly, group & private tour options are our specialty, with wildlife, wine & food, & regional touring experiences tailored to your requirements.

Contact us with any questions you may have, or if you wish to select one of our standard tours, just book online now.  We look forward to meeting you and giving you a great experience. Or if you wish something more specific than currently listed please let us know, as we will always do our best to accommodate if possible. 

We believe a tour experience is all about you and what you want to see or do.  You name it – we will do our best to provide the experience and take care of all the planning and fees.  All you will need to do is enjoy it on the day.

One of the greatest things about working with guests is we get to help shape the guest’s memories of Phillip Island. Wonderful life long memories that we hope you will carry forever. We feel honoured to be part of part of your memories.

So, come along and join in and enjoy! “It’s all about have fun”
