Organization was really fine, everything worked out and Tara was a very nice and funny guide. To watch the penguin parade was a great experience, too. So funny and cute to watch the little guys walking along the seaside to their homes. Maybe good to know: Photography is not allowed with the penguins, but at all other events it's no problem. Take warm clothes (windbreaker, scarf and cap) for the penguins, because in late evening/night it gets really cold with the wind at the beach. Not as good as expected the go-together with the Koalas. It's quite expensive to get in touch with them (~30 AUD) for a quick photo - and that's all. No option for stay longer close to them, maybe little feeding or just watch them close. And my photo wasn't that nice, too (couldn't see it before printed :\). So think about the Koala photo (you have to wait in queue -> time loss), but at all I would recommend the tour and do again :)

Excellent day out, our guide Kelly was really knowledgeable about the local wildlife which was great at the sanctuary. Transport was clean and air conditioned. We booked penguin plus, if you are debating it's definitely worth the extra money. General viewing is a lot further away from where the penguins walk up the sand but with plus they walk within a couple of feet, sadly you can't take photographs of the penguins but it was a fab experience

This trip is really all about the penguins which was just magical. The animal farm is really for children and the visit to to chocolate factory and beach, whilst pleasant, did feel like the operator was trying to fill the day. Good (and necessary) for a solo traveller but if you’re in a group I’d recommend hiring a car and doing it yourself.

The day was packed with activity the wildlife centre provided a good opportunity to see native wildlife in safe surroundings. The final/main activity was disappointing because not many penguins turned up, apparently due to time of year. This is not explained and spoilt part of the day

Super Ausflug, abwechslungsreiches Programm mit Höhepunkt der Pinguinparade. Unser Guide Dave war cool drauf und hat viel Infos mitgeben. Thank you Dave - well done and good job. Die Tour ist zu empfehlen. 19.2.2020 Peter, Switzerland
