What is there to do?

The ever popular guided penguin walks are a favourite to visitors to this area. The tours commence at dusk every night. Participants are part of a small group and accompany a professionally trained guide to view the penguins as they come ashore after a days fishing. The penguins make their way to their burrows where they can be seen displaying various behaviours, depending on the season.

These behaviours may include, feeding chicks, nest building courting and mating. Guides will interpret the biology, ecology, behaviours and adaptations of these charismatic creatures. The Penguin Centre opens on request for groups. The cost of the Penguin Centre is an optional extra and consists of an audio-visual presentation which runs for approximately 15 minutes.

The tour is a comprehensive and enjoyable nature experience. Participants meander through the penguin colony on Granite Island with a guide to view the Little Penguins as they come ashore after a days fishing.

A professionally trained guide will take visitors to view the penguins in their natural habitat and interpret the biology, ecology, behaviours and adaptations of these charismatic creatures. Scientific research measuring the health of the colony and environmental management strategies implemented to benefit the penguins is interpreted to tour participants, which adds interest to the tour.
