Your Experience

Every morning, little penguins (they're only a bit taller than bowling pins!) depart from their burrow and spend the day fishing at sea. During the course of the day, they will travel up to 20km in search of fish. After dusk, they return home and waddle across the beach in a penguin parade. It's one of the cutest displays of wildlife you will get to see. The sheer quantity of the penguins will surprise you, and you will be able to see them easily from the platform you have chosen during checkout. The best part is that the park is accessible within 90 minutes from Melbourne, and is an attraction that both adults and kids alike will enjoy! Please note: this ticket allows you entry only; it does not include transport from Melbourne.
