To see whales, dolphins, and seals, you should go between May and October when they migrate along the coast. To enjoy the beaches and try surfing, you should go between November and April when the weather is warm.

Should I buy tickets to the Penguin Parade advance?

Yes, you should pre-book your tour as it can sell out. This is especially important during peak periods such as the December and January summer holidays and school holidays.

Just before sunset we head over to the Penguin Parade to take our spots at the beach, ready to see the hundreds of Little Penguins as they make their way across the sand and return to their burrows in the sand dunes. See them reunited with their partners, where they give each other a little kiss, do a dance, then waddle up and into their burrows.
