What does it take to look after the world’s smallest penguin? What do they eat? Where do they sleep? Do they really dance and/or surf in Hawaii like those animated films would have us believe?

In this deep dive into aquatic avian life children join our penguin keepers at the penguin encounter facility, assisting them in their daily routine to look after our wild and wonderful Little Blue Penguins.

This experience includes exclusive back stage access to the Vet Room, Plant Room and Penguin Feeding Pulpit. It’s the type of behind-the-scenes encounter that lifelong memories are made of.

This is suitable for children aged 10 to 13 years.
