Penguin Island Visit

Its Friday, so a little off topic to finish off the working week. Back in January I had a chance to take Cameron for a quick visit to Penguin Island of the coast of Rockingham. We didn’t do the day visit thing but probably should have as there is opportunities to go body boarding, swimming as well as kayaking. Rather we took the tourist approach this time and went on a Wild Encounters Penguin and Sea Lions Cruise which worked about to be good value as Cameron enjoyed himself.

Our 45 minute cruise took in a visit to a small group of Australian sea lions

before moving on further into the Shoalwater Islands Marine Park to visit a rocky outcrop with an Osprey visiting.

After visiting the Osprey’s we returned to Penguin Island ending our 45 minute cruise in the Shoalwater Islands Marine Park. Upon our return to Penguin Island we got to visit the Penguin Island Discovery Centre and watch the Little Penguins being fed.

From there we jumped back on the ferry for the snappy five minute ride to the mainland. There you go, a quick tour of Penguin Island :)

      Kayaking is something I should go back and do there.
