Bicheno Penguin Tours

Bicheno Penguin Tours takes you to see fairy penguins at dusk on Tasmania’s East Coast.
The nightly evening tours offer a rare and thrilling chance to visit a private rookery. You can watch the fairy penguins (also known as the little penguin) emerge from the ocean and head for their homes.
Established by Bicheno locals to protect the penguin population, the tour lets you get close to the penguins without disturbing their nightly journey.
Tours operate daily except Good Friday, Christmas Day and New Year’s Eve. Tours depart at dusk and penguin numbers vary seasonally. Bookings are essential for penguin tours.

The Tasmanian tourism industry acknowledges the Tasmanian Aboriginal people and their enduring custodianship of lutruwita / Tasmania. We honour 40,000 years of uninterrupted care, protection and belonging to these islands, before the invasion and colonisation of European settlement. As a tourism industry that welcomes visitors to these lands, we acknowledge our responsibility to represent to our visitors Tasmania's deep and complex history, fully, respectfully and truthfully. We acknowledge the Aboriginal people who continue to care for this country today. We pay our respects to their elders, past and present. We honour their stories, songs, art, and culture, and their aspirations for the future of their people and these lands. We respectfully ask that tourism be a part of that future.
