Visit

Penguin Parade

Penguins arrive just after sunset every night of the year. We recommend guests arrive one hour before penguin arrival time to make their way through the visitor centre then find their seat on our grandstands and settle in. View our Penguin Arrival Calendar to determine what time you should plan to arrive.
