Penguin Parade (Phillip Island)




Penguin Parade, Australia’s most popular natural wildlife attraction. Each night at sunset, the world’s smallest penguins, the Little Penguins, emerge from the sea and waddle ashore to their sand dune burrows. Experience the wonder of Little Penguins coming ashore after a day’s fishing at sea.

The elevated boardwalks and viewing stands allow you to enjoy all the ‘penguin action’ without disturbing them or their burrow homes.

Opening Hours:


Around sunset each day
Note: You need to arrive 1 hour prior to the estimated penguin arrival time
NO filming or photography allowed.

Review:


This is one of the most popular attractions in Australia but I cannot give it a high rating as a children’s activity. There is a lot of waiting about (an hour absolute minimum) before any penguins are seen and unless you pay for a more expensive ticket, the penguins may not come ashore very close to you. This means that you have to leave your seat and follow the penguins as they walk near the boardwalk to get a decent look. The cost is not exorbitant but still significant. One pragmatic option is to visit The Nobbies for free beforehand and look for some penguins. If you strike out and don’t see any, then book a ticket for the Penguin Parade (allowing for the fact that some nights are fully booked out). Also note that no filming or photography is allowed at the Parade.
