It’s time to get fishy!
Do you love penguins? Join our dedicated keepers for a personal trip to Adelaide Zoo’s Penguin Beach and help feed our hilarious colony of Little Penguins their fishy lunch.
Just so you know, penguin table manners are a little different to ours so things may get a bit messy. Please dress appropriately.
Each of our penguins has a unique personality, making our colony a hive of activity. Our playful penguins love chattering and squawking to one another and are always busy, spending their days swimming, diving and darting through the waters at speeds of up to 40km an hour! On land, they are a little less graceful, waddling and hopping over rocks to their burrows.
Highlights of this experience
- Head into our Little Penguin habitat and meet the colony
- Get the opportunity to hand feed snacks to our little fish-lovers
Did you know there are 17 different kinds of penguins? Also known as ‘fairy penguins’, Little Penguins are the smallest penguin in the world, growing to about 30cm in height.
