Penguins

There are about 18 different Penguin species. Some of them can be observed in a moderate climate others in the cold. They spend most of their time in the sea for feeding and come ashore for breeding.

Every evening guided tours are being offered at Low Head. You spot a higher number of Penguins during the main breeding season from November to February: Then you may see 100-200 penguins at high tide and on new moon. The little blue penguins have to walk smaller distances to their nests at high tide. From March to October considerably less than 100 penguins come ashore.

Tourist Crowds

More visitors in summer from December to February. They get separated in smaller groups on the tours. Fewer visitors in winter and spring but fewer penguins to spot.
