Self-Guided Day Tour

Self-Guided Day Tour

General Entry

During the day visitors have the opportunity to enter the breeding colony. Take a casual stroll around part of the colony, seeing the natural habitat of the penguins.Information boards are placed around giving an insight into the life cycle of the penguins,and the monitoring programs we have here.

If there are penguins resident in our daytime viewing facility, the 'Blue Wing', visitors will see penguins in their nest boxes. However penguins come and go naturally so we cannot guarantee birds will be seen during the day.  

Our Penguin Walks are self-guided, however we do have a guide on hand to answer your questions. Penguin walks run throughout the day starting at 10am, ending approximately 60 minutes before dusk.

Photography and filming without flash is allowed inside the colony but not in the Blue Wing.

Running Time: 10-20 Minutes

Unique to the Blue Penguin is that it walks on land with a forward stoop which no other penguin does!
