All you need is a free evening and a sturdy pair of shoes. Enjoy the penguins coming home at the Bruny Island Neck penguin viewing platform.
Tasmania is fortunate in having several penguin rookeries along the coast where penguins can be easily observed. These guidelines are intended to both protect penguins and to allow you to see them under natural conditions. Please be sure you are familiar with them before visiting a penguin colony. Left to themselves, penguins will start to leave the water at last light so that they are under the
cover of darkness....
