Yellow-eyed penguin spotting
Penguin Place is a conservation reserve on private farmland dedicated to helping the endangered Yellow-Eyed Penguin survive.
You’ll need to book the 90-minute tours that include transport over to the east coast of the peninsula to hides that allow for close-up viewing of the penguins.
These little guys don’t live in a colony, but trudge inland up from the sea and beach to make solitary nests.
The best time to see them is late afternoon, when they come back from a day out fishing.
There’s no guarantee here, except that this is your best way of seeing a Yellow-eyed Penguin.
