  • Run by volunteers who were very friendly and helpful with lots of information about the penguins we had several sightings and were amazed by just how close they can be seen. Worth a look if your in burnie and easy boardwalk to take to the city centre with wheel chair accessibility
  • You can observe wild penguin closely without guided.
  • Amazing penguin observatory watch. Please come before 845pm for a debrief talk by Penguin Guide during summer time.
  • wonderful place to go with kids. They love the penguins and the observation centre is well managed and take care of. The information given by the presenter are also good. The island is cute and fun. the beach is safe and fun for kids. the glass bottom ride was lucky for us coz we saw a fleet for 4/5 dolphins swimming around us and also the pelicans as well as sea lions. that was indeed lucky wild sighting for sure. but overall very good day trip for kids
  • Amazing and informative penguin talk and viewing. Even at night it can get windy and cold, so bring a jacket!
