Bicheno Penguin Tours

Group of visitors looing at penguins up close in BichenoJoin us for an unforgettable journey with Bicheno Penguin Tours, the premier penguin experience on Tasmania’s East Coast. Our nightly tours at dusk take you to a private penguin rookery, where you can witness the enchanting world of little penguins in their natural habitat. Established over 30 years ago, our mission has been to rehabilitate farmland into a sanctuary for these amazing creatures, offering guests a unique opportunity to observe penguin life up close.

What You Will See

Embark on a guided walk through our specially rehabilitated penguin rookery, where the stars of the show, the little penguins, waddle ashore after a day’s fishing. Under the guidance of our experienced tour guides, you’ll learn about the penguins’ behaviors, their habitat, and the conservation efforts to protect these charming birds. The tour’s gentle walk covers approximately 700 meters and lasts around 50 minutes, providing plenty of time to marvel at these creatures in their natural setting.
