Day Trips from Perth to Penguin Island visit the Penguin Island Discovery Centre

The fairy penguins, the smallest breed of penguins, are very shy creatures and hence it is hard to see them in the wild. Mostly they spend the whole day in the water and return to the island only once night has fallen. Therefore, in order to actually see some penguins, you can visit the Discovery Centre, which is a great opportunity to observe how the rangers and the birds interact with each other. These shy creatures will only allow feedings from their own carer, but visitors can come see them get fed at the allocated times.
