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.
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.
Tour groups are small to ensure a high quality experience. This is a highly reputable, ethical and professionally managed eco tourism experience for all visitors to the Fleurieu Peninsula.
Tour times are variable throughout the year, see the website for times. Bookings are essential.Visit Website
