AU2012 - Penguin Parade

The Phillip Island Penguin Parade is one of Australia’s most popular wildlife attractions, where wild little penguins emerge from the sea and waddle across the beach to their burrows every sunset.

 

 

And usually, they numbered in the thousands!!

 

 

The only downside though, is the restriction on camera usage. Since they do not allow cameras, here’s a postcard shot …

… and a video from Channel Ten.

 

 

While it was a good experience, I reckon that the Penguin Tour in Bicheno, Tasmania, is more fun and value for money!! Small groups, informative guides, and non-flash photography allowed!!

But of course, be prepared to step onto muddy and uneven surfaces since it is not as “modern” as Phillip Island’s attraction.

 

 

But if you do visit the Penguin Parade at Phillip Island, don’t forget to check under your cars for penguins before you leave!!
