Bicheno Penguin Tours operates nightly tours departing at dusk from our base located in the centre of Bicheno.
Once checked-in by our friendly team a short bus ride will take you to the private penguin rookery. The penguin rookery has been established over 30 years through rehabilitating farmland back to penguin friendly habitat. From here a guide will explore the penguin rookery with yourself teaching you some interesting facts about penguins and steps we can all take to improve the life of these little birds. The tour involves approximately 700 meters of walking over 50 minutes.
We operate the only penguin tour on Tasmania's East Coast. We have been working hard to establish the penguin colony back to its former glory, through ongoing habitat creation & security your input helps us continue to improve the habitat. The penguin tour is the safest way to see penguins as the rookery was established though rehabilitated farmland allowing us to create lit pathways in a penguin friendly colour spectrum prior to the arrival of penguins into the area. Making walking in the dark easy and safe for us and the penguins alike!
