Penguin Encounter

Each one of our playful penguins has a distinct personality, which you can get to know as you feed the birds their banquet and watch up close as they waddle, swim and play! 

The Penguin Encounter includes a unique behind the scenes tour where you can discover how we care for these cheeky little creatures and ask our team of penguin experts anything you want to know.

This brand new experience runs from Wednesday – Sunday at 9:45am, plus an additional feed at 12:15pm during Queensland school holidays only.

Guests must be aged 5+ to participate; all guests under 18+ must be accompanied by a participating adult.

Places are limited, so book early!
