1924 Party at the Parade FB graphic V2 2

It’s a little over a week until Phillip Island’s Little penguins host their penguin party to celebrate their new homebase at the new, award-winning Penguin Parade visitor centre.

On Sunday 13 October, the ‘housewarming’ party will run from 11am – 4pm and is a celebration of the spectacular new centre featuring music, fun, food, activities with our rangers, craft, tours, roving performers and much more.

This free event is a backstage pass to the exciting new building at the centre of the Phillip Island penguin colony. Amidst a party atmosphere, partygoers can tour the new facility and go behind the scenes to learn the inside story of the special features and how we worked closely with visitors and penguins alike to ensure they were not disturbed during construction. Rangers will be on hand with fun activities for kids and adults including art, games and a special demonstration by the Nature Parks’ fox detection dog team.

Misty the giant penguin has already RSVP’ed and has her dancing shoes on, and roving performer Sustainability Snail has started inching his way to Phillip Island. Helly Hoops and Mat-E-Tricks will also delight partygoers along with local artists Camille Monet and Patrice Mahoney providing fun for kids and adults. See you there!
