STRICTLY NO PHOTOGRAPHY ALLOWED, boooo! All because you can’t trust someone to not blind the little Fairy Penguins on their March back up the beach from a day of hunting the open sea for food.
A cute parade to witness and maybe more memorable after braving the cold conditions in waiting for the birds to return to their burrows.
However the cost per person is a definite detracting.
Yes, they’ve made a great comeback with the research and conservation work that has gone before, but it’s getting prohibitive for a family group.
Dress warmly, or at least go prepared for a long cool/cold wait on an open beach. Pricey $$ warm food and drinks ($9 meat pies!).
Wheelchair accessible and boardwalks to at least listen to the penguins chattering in their burrows.
