Immerse yourself in a unique marine wonderland with our “Penguin Island” tour package. Set sail for a captivating experience amidst Australia’s southeastern coastline, in the enchanting Rivoli Bay. Just 1.5 kilometers south of Beachport lies the mesmerizing Penguin Island, renowned for the world’s most significant congregation of Little Penguins. Annually, these charming creatures visit the island to breed and nest, offering an enchanting spectacle for all nature enthusiasts.

Our visitation schedule aligns perfectly with the natural rhythms of the island, keeping conservation at the forefront. We welcome guests from mid-September to early June, during specific daylight hours, ensuring minimal disturbance to the island’s wildlife.

While the Little Penguins are undeniably the main attraction, Penguin Island also serves as a haven for various other native bird species, including pelicans and sea eagles. Keep your eyes peeled for playful dolphins, and the rare Australian sea lions, both often sighted in the surrounding waters.
