Highlights

An enchanting boat cruise to visit WA’s largest colony of “little penguins” on their very own island, and spirited dolphins and canal front homes of Mandurah.

Relax, near the crystal clear waters of Shoalwater Bay or enjoy a short walk on the island (time permitting).

Visit the Penguin Discovery Centre to catch the exciting morning Penguin Feed show where the little fairy penguins are fed fresh fish individually by the islands rangers in their specially built enclosure.

After an interesting time on the island, we cruise back to the mainland and head south to the City of Mandurah.

Get some souvenir shopping done when you disembark and find your land legs again at the marina.

Note: Penguin Island is not available from 2 June to 14 September due to Winter nesting season. (Please check tour availability.)
