The centre is very interactive and educational. There weren't a lot of dinner options, but they're working on expanding soon so that'll improve. We sat on the beach where you could see the penguins coming out the sea and scurrying up into the dunes, it was a beautiful sight! Do bring a blanket, because we sat there almost 2 hours to get our good spots and then it gets really cold! Also very suitable for children: we brought our 1,5 year toddler. Do bring some toys or run up and down the stairs with them to keep them busy during the waiting. He loved playing on the sand and saw the penguins up-close when we went back on the walking trail.

Lots of people even in winter! A great thing about winter that the sun sets early. You'll get to see them up close on your way back to the centre from the viewing decks. The indoor tourist centre gives lots of visual information about these penguins. There's a large souvenir store and numerous food places.

We actually purchased the Penguin Plus tickets (double the GA price) which allowed for a different seating area than General Admission. The day was crowded as it was a holiday weekend even though it was cold. If you sat on the lower seating you could see the penguins very close (you could nearly touch them...but don't). No pictures are allowed of the penguins. There were at least a hundred little penguins that came ashore in 6-7 groups of 10 - 20 penguins. To get good seats on a busy weekend, arrive at least an hour before the penguins come ashore. The lights go out when the show is over, but if you leave a little early you beat the crowds and still get to see the more adventurous penguins waddling up the paths to their burrows.

"Witness the natural spectacle of the world?s smallest penguins arriving home at sunset each evening on Phillip Island. Watch as they emerge from the waves and waddle across the sand to the safety of their burrows. "
