The penguins return home from their day's fishing, make their way onto the beach, up a stony ramp, and cross into the Colony. You will be informed about the lives of the penguins during a commentary delivered by one of our guides. From the General Entry grandstand you will see the penguins from about 10-15 metres away.

You are seated in a grandstand that seats 350 people, bookings are advised in the summer months.
