Kids loved seeing the penguins up close from the underground viewing. Upgrade well worth the money as out of the winter weather conditions. Went on a Sunday night and not that busy.

It was so exciting watching the penguins came up from the sea and marching up to their cave on the hills. Unfortunately it was rain in the middle of the show so we had to move to find a shelter. It's very educational activities and...More

We drove to the Penguin Parade from The Nobbies Centre via an alternate dirt road. We saw some really pretty rugged coastline & several families of Cape Barren Geese. We did the Ultimate Penguin Experience & felt it was worth spending the extra money. On...More

My understanding is that there are different combination passes to see multiple attractions. The key recommendation that I would have is to choose Penguins Plus as the penguin ticket. Hope this helps.

The rangers do an approximate count of the penguins coming ashore every night. I don't remember exactly what my guide said about the numbers for each month, but there's a lot of info on their website and a contact form there... More
