The Fairy Penguins found in Tasmania are the smallest of the penguin species, the noisiest, and also the only penguins with blue and white feathers. 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 one 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 is permitted. As it gets cool at night please wear warm clothes and wear sturdy shoes (sports shoes are ok). *** Due to uncertainty surrounding how the industry will bounce back after Covid-19 border closures easing, this tour will have reduced days of operation to Tuesday, Thursday & Saturday. Other nights may be possible on request.
