Penguins are such magical birds and being able to see the little penguins at Phillip Island is an experience you and your family will not forget. Little penguins (Eudyptula minor) are indeed the world’s smallest penguin species. They only stand at 33 cm tall and weigh in at just one kilogram, with the males weighing only slightly more than the females.

At Phillip Island, the little penguins return home at sunset to their sand burrows to sleep after a day of fishing. They come from the water’s edge and waddle up the dunes in a most adorable fashion, known as the Penguin Parade. Watching these birds is an absolute delight that will warm your heart.
