The number of Little Penguins on Kangaroo Island has declined greatly in the last 15 years,
but there is still a small colony (about 12 pairs) in the penguin refuges managed by the Penneshaw Penguin Centre.

We conduct penguin tours every night of the year, except Christmas Day and during February, when the penguins are all at sea.
Joining a tour with one of our experienced guides is probably the best way to obtain views
of these elusive birds, and to learn about their fascinating life cycle.

Booking is recommended, as numbers are limited for a more intimate experience.
Flash photography is not allowed, but it’s possible to take good photos by torchlight.
On some nights it can be difficult to see penguins, and patience will be needed.
A walk of a few hundred metres is involved, with some steps. The paths are unlit,
but torches are provided.

Update 17th January 2019: Only a few penguins around now, maybe 2 or 3 seen each night.
Soon all the penguins will be at sea for a few weeks after they have finished moulting.
So there will be no more tours after Saturday 19th January until the beginning of March.

Tour times: 9pm and 10pm

No tours after Saturday 19th January till March 2019

Prices: $13 adult, $10 concession, $35 family
