*To ensure optimum animal welfare in warmer weather and moulting periods, a maximum of two people per group is permitted to feed the penguins. Penguins typically eat less during these times. Please note that due to the shy nature of these animals, and particularly during breeding season, the Little Blue Penguins may not be very sociable or emerge from their burrows. This is beyond our control. Thank you for your understanding and co-operation.
