Seeing the penguins walk back alongside the return pathway was the highlight of the evening. We couldn't see the penguins clearly from the rafters (where it was windy and cold); and I don't think the people who sat in the costly seats on the beach did any better. But we could see the little penguins from about five feet on our way back. It was one of the highlights of our Melbourne trip. We also see wild kangaroos (wallabies?) while driving in.
