I attended this last night but didn't get to see the penguins. She humiliated me in front of my son and his girlfriend to the point I had to leave - I have never encountered such rudeness in my entire life. Left devastated

Really well run tours, the guides are very good at getting you close to the penguins but not being in their way. Good photo opportunities. Even if the days are warm remember to take a jacket as once the sun goes down and the penguins come out it does get cooler.

Well worth a visit. Is well run and the staff are lovely and helpful. You get to see lots of fairy penguins right up close and we saw babies in their burrows. Not to be missed was a highlight of our visit to Low Head.

Awesome informative tour right on dusk where you see the penguins come out of the water, walk right past you up the beach and see the babies come out of their burrows. $63 for a family of 5.

Both my husband and I enjoyed this tour a great deal. Our tour guides Alex & Max were fantastic, very knowledgable and happy to answer all our questions. A really up close and personal penguin experience. Highly recommend to anyone visiting the area.

Great experience!! Kids loved it (13 & 17)!! Tour breaks up into smaller groups and go to seperate parts of beach! The penguins are just amazing and close enough u have to watch where u walk in case they near you!! I suggest bring your warmest jackets the wind was soooo cold on our night! For $20 adults $10 kids... More

We drove to Low Head from Launceston to see the fairy penguins in their natural habitat and we were not disappointed. The tour is less commercial than Phillip Island and is better for it. John was an informative and excellent guide. The tour is at sunset so I suggest that you ring them first to book and check the time.... More

Loved every minute of our tour watching the penguins come out of the water and make their way home. You are able to get up close as they come up the sand and feed their babies. Our tour guide was fantastic and extremely knowledgeable. A must to do if you are in Lanceston
