Little Penguins

Sight-seeing

St Kilda Breakwater is home to a colony of Little Penguins. Up to 100 Little Penguins call the breakwater their home. The isolation of the breakwater is an ideal location for them to live.

Just before dusk you can view the colony coming ashore from the promenade on the St Kilda Breakwater.

Looking after the Penguins

  • No flash photography of the Little Penguins
  • Torches can only be used if the front is covered with a sheet of red cellophane
