Low Head Penguin Tours offers penguin-watching tours at Low Head in Northern Tasmania. Operating at the mouth of the Tamar River, the tours offer a fascinating insight into the Little penguins (also known as Fairy penguins) making their nightly journey to their burrows. The penguin tour departs just after sunset from Low Head. The informative commentary offers you information about the penguins. Tours take about one hour and are conducted all year round and in all weather. Make sure you wear warm clothing in case it gets chilly.
