Wat je gaat doen

l will meet you prior to dusk at a designated place in Wynyard. Because penguins can be seasonal, the times change nightly and the activity is weather dependent, it is important you contact me after making a booking so I can give you more precise information about weather, meeting times and expected penguin numbers.
You will need a car as it's a 10 min drive to the penguin colony, then a short walk on a boardwalk onto a beach area. Here, you will be waiting in a seated area with the waves crashing nearby for the penguins to arrive. They will start to appear in little groups at dusk and will wander up their special paths on the beach. Simultaneously, you will start to hear the calls of the little penguins to their mates, guiding them to their nests. I will have special lights to allow you to see the penguins, without causing any disruption or distress to the penguins as they go about their penguin business. Most penguins will be ashore within 30 minutes of dusk, where they will head towards their nests. Once home, we will do a walk along the beach where we can get very close to the penguins outside their nests and you'll be amazed at how happy they are with us there. I will give you plenty of insights about the penguins, so you'll appreciate their uniqueness. All proceeds from the cost of your booking will go towards local little penguin conservation activities.

I am a passionate wildlife supporter, and love to introduce visitors to the local wildlife in and around Wynyard Tasmania, so they can experience the simple joys of being around the wildlife I love. I am going to let visitors to the area in on a secret- a little penguin secret! (The best kind!) We have a few colonies of little penguins locally that enable an up close and personal experience with the little penguin colonies in Wynyard. I have been doing boutique penguin tours for over a decade and taken a lot of visitors along to see these gorgeous little penguins. I am a member of Wildcare (the volunteer organisation of the Tasmanian Parks and Wildlife Service) and I love to share my knowledge and passion for penguins with others.

Waar je naartoe gaat

This is a secret-ish beach location, and in fact I have a few different locations, so where you go will depend on where I think you will get the best viewing for that night. Access to these locations is uneven, rocky and sandy and not suitable for wheelchair access, people using walking aids or young children. However, once you get there, you will be on the beach, under the stars, looking at, and listening to little penguins- what's not to love

Perfect encounter. Local expert, superb overview before the viewing, excellent descriptions during the viewing, and a full-on personal experience with some of the penguins he had special names for. Absolutely one of the highlights on our 3 week trip to Tasmania. Keith, you are a gem for the coast!

Keith was diligent, professional, informative and entertaining. He should definitely be charging way more for this experience. Being able to stand within arm's reach of penguins is not something we have experienced before, so if getting up close and personal with penguins sounds like something you might be interested in, then we could not possibly recommend Keith highly enough.

We had a private Family showing of Penguins that was instructive and very enjoyable. If you want to take selfies with Penguins, this is not the tour for you. if you want to respectfully observe and learn, then do this tour.

Fantastic tour! Keith was really knowledgable about the penguins and their behaviours and was able to answer any questions that the group had! Although we came at a time when numbers were expected to be low, we had a lovely surprise and saw lots of penguins come to shore! I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone staying in Wynyard!

Keith is a wonderful, passionate, knowledgeable guide and he knows everything there is to know about penguins! Let him teach you all about their habits and behaviours in this brilliant guided experience. It will leave your wanting to save the world, (or at least save the penguins!) A one-of-a-kind experience I can thoroughly recommend.

    Meer tips

    It's a short walk on a boardwalk with steps and on uneven beach terrain, so not suitable for children under 8 years and people with walking aids/needing assistance. Warm, dark clothes are a must! Patient quietness is essential.
    It's recommended visitors stay in nearby Wynyard, Somerset or Burnie

    Wat je mee moet nemen

    Please wear warm, dark clothing - it will get chilly after dusk on the beach and and I want you to be comfortable. It's important to blend into the dark background so we can observe our little penguins without frightening them.

    Please don't bring mobile phones, torches or cameras. The light, noise and movement with these may scare or harm our little penguin friends.
