Welcome to the Oamaru Blue Penguin Colony

Come and discover the world of the little blue penguin. Your visit contributes to our long-term conservation and research programmes where we care for and learn about the penguins' lives.


We will be open to the public for Evening Viewing from Friday the 15th of May onwards.


PLEASE NOTE: We have a strict arrangement for bookings. To ensure we can manage the viewing safely, if you wish to come to the colony you must pre-book at least 24 hours in advance. 


You can support our work by adopting a penguin or sponsoring our work:
