A must-see for those who love viewing wildlife. Penguin Place offers visitors a rare opportunity to closely observe wild, endangered Yellow Eyed Penguins from a large network of trenches. The penguins are completely unaware that they are being observed. Better still if you can visit while the chicks are still around, getting regular feedings from their parents.
It is well worth the price of admission and the trip out to the end of the peninsula. While here, you can also visit the Royal Albatross Colony at Taiaroa Head. If you are unable or unwilling to drive to Penguin Place, you can sign up for any number of tours at the In-Site Tourism office near Dunedin's Octagon.
