The entire experience will be one to remember. Experience the magic of little penguins returning home at sunset to one of the largest penguin colonies in Australia. Little penguins (Eudyptula minor) are the smallest of all penguin species. They stand approximately 33cm tall and weigh around one kilogram, with males weighing slightly more than females.
Little penguins spend 80% of their lives at sea swimming and foraging for food, and return to their nesting burrows on Phillip Island. It is when little penguins return to land, at sunset each day, that visitors are lucky enough to spot them tumbling from the waves, waddling across the beach and into their colony along the coastline. There will be plenty of photo opportunities where memories can be captured.
