In our specially-designed viewing room there are 10 nesting boxes that you can look down into and see the penguins inside. Our penguins are wild of course and sometimes might all be at sea during the day, so outside of the breeding season we cannot always guarantee birds will be home. When the penguins are breeding, particularly from August until February, there are always penguins home incubating eggs, raising chicks or moulting. ‚Äč
 

You also have the opportunity to enjoy our new day experience with lots of interaction, education and information on our research and monitoring programmes. Find out what goes on behind the scenes at the Colony, learn more about our penguins, play and discover in our brand new children’s area, before heading outdoors to explore the penguins’ nesting environment. 

The daytime viewing activity is self-guided, however we do have a guide on hand to answer your questions. Entry into the day viewing area begins at 10am, continues throughout the day, and ends approximately 60 minutes before dusk.

Photography and filming without flash is allowed in the colony but not in the viewing room.
