Reviewed January 27, 2017

A fantastic and informative tour and we did see penguins :) These little guys were so cute and we excitedly watched the adult fairy penguins waddle back to their young to feed them.

We thought during the holidays we would take the kids (4&5) for a tour and spend the night in Victor. This tour was quite dissapointing only seeing one penguin arrive on the night, unfortunatly for the colony of fairy penguins there are only a few left and some nights they dont see any arrive. I think its time that they stopped offering tours becuase the $40 for the family pass could be much better spent plus we paid for 2 lunches, dinner and breakfast because we based the trip around this tour.

The centre has closed but you can do the night time tours with the parks service. Book at the Information Centre opposite the tramway. The lovely ladies there were very helpful in booking us into the tour. The little penguins come out at night so take a very warm jacket. So cute.

Had visited this centre on a previous trip and found it to be very well run and informative. It is a shame it has now closed. You can still see the Little Penguins on Granite Island by booking an evening guided tour with the Wildlife Service, the current phone number being posted at numeorous

Unfortunately no longer running and the only way you can see penguins is on a night tour. Shame really bcos the people that worked here were dedicated. Unfortunate that penguins can thrive in metropolis of st kilda (Melbourne) but struggle in Victor harbor. Granite island isn't the same without the penguin centre
