‪We came up on the day and managed to get tickets for the cruise on the day. I checked online for the times but it was different on the day, possibly because it was late in the season. We were on the ferry which immediately went for the cruise and then returned to penguin island for the feeding.
The cruise was amazing. I quite enjoyed the boat ride to the different islands around Shoalwater marine park. There was plenty of bird life around in the water as well as on the islands. I thought it was quite interesting that the islands were once part of the mainland and that they are the remnants of fossilised tree roots.. Even more interesting is that they all could connect to each other through secret tunnels under the water. We also saw a couple of seals on seal island as well as dolphins with a calf.
After the cruise, we headed to the discovery center to watch the penguin feeding. The center isn't very big but did have 2 viewing areas around the pool. It was nice to learn a bit about the penguins as you watch them gulp down fish. We then hiked around the island, which isn't very big. It probably took around 30 minutes to get to the Northern lookout on the boardwalk. We managed to see a seal on the beach as well as many nesting birds. The tide was in so we couldn't walk down to the Western beach to the other lookout closer to the pier. It took about an hour to head to the two observation points and walk around the entire island.
There are toilets here but no other shops. There are also a few beaches but it did sound like it wasn't really there for swimming to preserve the area for the wildlife. It was a nice, fairly short adventure in Rockingham.‬

‪Do not waste your money! The Discovery centre was very disappointing 6 penguins in one of the smallest pools i ever seen. The penguins on the island where sitting on a hill in the distance , you need binoculars to see them.
The Kids where extremely upset . No shop to even buy a drink !
Could have gone to Beach down the road and seen more activity.‬

So sorry to hear about your experience with our beautiful Penguin island! We understand that your chance to spot a wild penguin is limited on the island, unfortunately this is out of our control they are wild animals, whom do borrow, hunt and swim during the day. For the discovery center, we are currently in the works of upgrading the size of the center to compensate for the more orphaned and injured penguins we are rescuing. Like I said sorry to hear about your day not being as super as you expected, we do hope you took the time to take in the other wildlife around yo and our amazing beaches.

‪Can't believe I haven't been here before
The tour of seal Island and bird Island was so incredible 😍
Dolphins and their calves swimming back and forth beneath the glass bottom ferry boat.
Sea lions lounging on seal Island Beach. Osprey on bird Island and then onto the penguins and pelicans on penguin Island
Snorkelling was great on both sides of the Island and the little pensions are so cute
What a hidden gem!!‬

‪The kiosk for the tickets was easily accessible and the cashier very cheerful. We bought our ticket for the penguin feeding and trip across/back. It was a short walk across the parking lot to the jetty where the boat was waiting. We took the tour boat over to Penguin Island in the morning and our weather was beautiful. The attendants on the boat were professional and efficient.

On docking, we disembarked and the walk up to the main centre was easy without obstruction. On arrival at the penguin centre, they checked our tickets and we went into the arena where the little penguins were.

Our presenter was extremely knowledgeable about the fairy penguins and she was well rehearsed with the information that she imparted. The whole feeding experience took about 30 minutes and the penguins are seriously adorable. Great for children!

After you exit the centre, there are plenty of opportunities to walk the island, see the pelican’s nesting grounds, enjoy the sand and the environment. I would give at least a couple of hours to explore the island.

However if you go with the idea that penguins run rampant on the island you will be disappointed and this is explained in the talk.‬

‪Penguin Island is a small island some 600 metres from the Rockingham shore. The Little Penguins which have their nests there are the only such birds on the Indian Ocean shore. The penguins are well-loved by generations of Perth people; in fact, they are a symbol of Rockingham, which is 40 kms south of Perth. The enviroment of Penguin Island is fragile, and climatic changes can have a disastrous effect on the penguins, so if you take a trip to Penguin Island, please observe the signs.‬

‪Have been going to Penguin Island for years, first with own kids, now with grandchldren. We had planned to go in December until I checked on the fares, and found it would be $120 for 3 children and two seniors. I checked on the price to go to Adventureworld, and it was $170. Guess where we went instead. Honestly, for a five minute ferry ride, and for the few actiities you can do for free on the island, the price was ridiculous. Visitors wouldnt know any better, but locals sure do. Pick up your game.‬

Hi jackit_12, We're sorry you feel this way about the pricing to go to the island. During these Covid times we really do appreciate the support of locals and far away visitors. We play an important role in educating guests on the precious marine and bird life here in the Shoalwater Islands Marine Park.

‪Don't bother wasting your time and money going to penguin island unless you enjoy being surrounded by thousands of squawking feral birds, walking on bird turds which covers every square inch of the board walk and ropes and signs saying your not allowed to actually enjoy the interesting parts of the island ie the caves. ‬

Hi usurperu, Thank you for your review, we're sorry you feel this way about Penguin Island. Although to others it can be quite joyous to be surrounded by lots of amazing bird species. Penguin Island is a bird sanctuary and protected as it is an important home and breeding site for over 60 different types of native and migratory birds (some in which travel 12,000 kms one way for this migration). This is why important areas of the island are sectioned off as well (i.e interesting areas), to allow us to observe these creatures from a safe distance not only for their protection but also yours, particularly at the caves. The cave area has been closed off for your safety as it can be a hazard (eroding and falling down) and also because it is used by large male sea lions, who most importantly must be observed from a distance. The rangers, volunteers and our crew do our best to create bird poo free spaces such as hand rails and touch points however with this many beautiful birds we have well and truly embraced this.

‪Get rid of the Covid Natzis at the entrance to the penguin discovery centre. Made to feel like a piece of Sh$t as I refused to put hand sanitizer on. This is not mandatory and with a large cut on my hand obviously not best suited for me. their ATTITUDE at that point was appalling.‬

Hi johnmP5007EB. We're sorry you had this experience with one of the Department of Parks and Wildlife volunteers. We hope this didn't dampen the other nice experiences you may have had on Penguin Island with Perth Wildlife Encounters. Hope to see you again.

‪Only 5 minutes to cross by ferry from Shoalwater to Penguin Island at which point the world changes. It is a great little island full of pelicans, penguins, terns, skinks and other animals. There are no eating/drinking facilities on the island so ensure you take your own - a single 'drop' toilet which isn't to everyone's taste - and lots of noisy birds but the place is a gem. The water is crystal clear and shallow and the walk is short but interesting. The penguins in the discovery are little wonders especially Kevin who got fed up of chasing the fish that were thrown and waddled up to the bucket to demand to be hand fed. Don't miss this great place.‬
