Penguin Tours

These days we are all looking for a bargain. Your hard earned money needs to stretch just that much more so that you can tailor many treats to accommodate this increase in wealth. So when you are looking for an extraordinary adventure, you will have come to the right spot with penguin tours. These types of tours are for those nature lovers who don’t mind being leaving nature to do what it does best and simply enjoy watching.

As with everything that you find these days penguin tours do vary and it is up to you to know when a bargain is to be had. Unlike most other nature tours most penguin tours happen during the whole year, so you are never short of finding the correct inspiration. This is your guide to the workings of penguin life so that your understanding of these creatures is not only limited to what movies and nature channels have to tell you.

However, your specific location in Australia or New Zealand might limit you to certain penguin tour sites. Alternatively if this is too limited for you then you can travel to the other sites. However if you add fuel costs the closer to home penguin tours might prove worthwhile.

Technological aids

Due to increased need for understanding you will find that some penguin tours offer you great ways of learning about penguins. Some have more advanced technological tools such as MP4 audio tours along with your penguin viewing. Others offer you comprehensive guides that will keep you enthralled with the specific species that you are viewing.

Package upgrades

In some nature reserves you will be able to enjoy a more treated viewing of the penguins. This can be a romantic treat should you want to treat it is as one. Some parks offer you a viewing box that gives you an extraordinary view of the penguins. The reason for this is that penguin tours often happen at night as this is when the penguins return to their respective burrows to ‘get ready for bed’. So this means that you are sometimes outside and have to contend with the elements. You might not also be allowed to bring certain items. This then makes a viewing box an appealing option as you can sit in the warmth while enjoying the spectacular display or natural performance by the penguins.  Perhaps this is an option ideal for winter. You still get the close feel that penguin tours are all about.

If you’re planning on visiting New Zealand, and want to take in some of the incredible sights the country has to offer, there’s one sight you absolutely cannot miss – an adorable, super-endearing penguin tour! Watch and observe hundreds, even thousands of adorable little penguins in their native habitat. These adorable little New Zealand penguins are guaranteed to bring a smile to your face.

Watch the penguins as the dive and fly through the air, and watch them waddle around on land. It’s absolutely breathtaking to be able to watch these lovely little birds in their home, undisturbed. Not only is New Zealand an absolutely magical, gorgeous place, the native animals are amazing to take in as well, and are one sight you simply need to see.

There are three different species of penguin that are native to the New Zealand area, and that are all available to see on penguin tours in New Zealand – simply a must-do activity for anyone touring through New Zealand! The first penguin is the Korora, or the little blue penguin, or little fairy penguin, which is actually the smallest penguin in the entire world! There’s something amazing about seeing this tiny little penguin on a penguin tour, or during the breathtaking penguin parade, in which hundreds, even thousands of these little penguins launch themselves out of the water. There is also the yellow-eyed penguin, which has an astonishing shade of bright yellow splashed on it’s face, as well as the Fjorland penguin, which is actually one of the rarest in the world! Not only does New Zealand have some of the most adorable, and fascinating birds on the planet, we also have two extremities – one of the rarest, as well as the smallest penguin on the planet! Also, since penguins are not a migratory bird, these particular species are not going to be seen anywhere else – they’ve been in New Zealand all their life, and will stay there, making them truly a New Zealand sight. This is one activity you simply cannot pass up!

There is something that is just truly magnificent about being able to witness animals in their natural habitat, outside of a zoo, and New Zealand is able to offer just that with their native penguin population. Being able to take in the breathtaking landscape of New Zealand, along with watching these adorable little birds is truly an experience simply like no other.


Penguin tour is an absolutely breathtaking sight that everyone should experience at least once in their life and what better place to do it than the home of the Penguin Parade – Phillip Island? Imagine the beautiful landscapes and environment of Australia, with some of Australia’s native creatures. The Little Blue Fairy Penguin is native to Australia, and is one of the many native creatures that you absolutely need to see while you’re in the area. Penguin tours are not an experience that you’d want to miss out on!

What is the Penguin Parade? At dusk, the adorable and charming Little Penguin, also sometimes known as the Little Blue Penguin or Fairy Penguin needs to leave the ocean and go back to their burrows in the dunes. One by one, the Little Blue Fairy Penguins will begin to pop out of the water… You’ll see one’s head peek out, and then it leaves the water, followed by hundreds, and even thousands. Having spent the whole day out in the water, looking for food, it’s time to go home. It’s really amazing to see thousands of these sweet Little Blue Penguins scurry across the sand to their homes, and it attracts crowds from all over the world to take in this magnificent sight. The Little Blue Fairy Penguin is the smallest penguin in the world, hence its name, and is probably also one of the cutest, due to its minute size. The Penguin Parade is truly one of Australia’s most unique attractions, and something you certainly need to see while you’re in the area.

Australia is filled with gorgeous, secluded beaches that are perfect for Australian Penguin tours. It’s truly amazing to be able to experience and view the penguins in their own habitat. Being able to witness the penguin’s interact is a really unique experience you’ll be sure to remember forever.

Penguin tours are an incredibly exceptional experience you won’t find in many other places – penguins, for the most part, are not known to be migratory birds, and tend to stay strictly in one place. This makes Australia the only home of the Little Blue Fairy Penguin, a sight that is completely unique in Australia. Taking in a penguin tour is a totally unique spectacle that is absolutely like no other – you simply need to go on a penguin tour!
