Low Head Penguin Tour

Launceston to Low Head Coastal Reserve

Low Head Penguin Tours offer a unique nature experience to get up close and personal with Little Blue Penguins as they return from the pristine waters of Bass Straight to nest in their burrows. This tour runs with a minimum of 2 people.

The penguins found in Tasmania are the smallest of the penguin species, the noisiest, and also the only penguins with blue and white feathers (all others are black and white). Because of this they have several names, the Little Penguin, the Blue Penguin, but the most common name they are called is the Fairy Penguin.

Low Head Penguin Tours offer a unique nature experience to get up close and personal with our penguins as they return from the pristine waters of Bass Straight to nest in their burrows within the Low Head Coastal Reserve. This Reserve has the largest penguin rookery in Tasmania, and we have penguins returning every night throughout the year. Watch them swim to the surface, stand up and preen themselves before waddling up the beach. The penguin viewing is fully guided and takes approximately 1 hour, and including transfers to/from Launceston you need to allow 3.5 hours. You are welcome to bring a camera to capture your experience but NO FLASH PHOTOGRAPHY. As it gets cool at night please wear warm clothes and wear sturdy shoes (sports shoes OK).

Departs Launceston Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday & Saturday an hour before dusk.

Pick up from all hotel and accommodation locations in central Launceston. Other pick up locations available on request (may incur additional fee).

Minimum two people required for this tour to depart.
