Lonely Planet review for Penguin Parade
The Penguin Parade attracts more than 500, 000 visitors a year. The ‘fairy penguins’ have been recently rebadged as ‘little penguins’ – a more accurate translation of the scientific name Eudyptula minor. Concrete amphitheatres hold up to 3800 people who coo over the ridiculously cute penguins that emerge from the sea after sunset and waddle resolutely up to their beach nests. The visitors centre has a gift shop and café (try the penguin burger!).
