The Perth Penguin Island

The Perth Penguin Island is one of the most beautiful islands in the world. It is unique because it has a colony of small penguins that can be visited and viewed from September to June. There are many ferries and cruises operating the whole day to take the visitors there and private vehicles can also be brought in with prior permission. The Perth Penguin Island is situated close to Perth in West Australia and is reachable in approximately ten minutes by ferry. In fact, there are people who have walked to it from Perth during low tides. For that, one has to be conversant with tides and be familiar with the sea and the waves.

Besides the cute little penguins, there are wild albatross and other birds and lizard species. Animal and nature lovers find this island a haven for their obsession, sport and pastime. The island is fairly small and can be explored within half an hour. There are no restaurants or eateries nearby so food should be taken there. There are benches to sit and relax, and other comforts, keeping in mind the atmosphere of the place. So, a visit to the Penguin Island mainly revolves around seeing the wildlife, enjoying water sports and for little ones to play in water. Scuba diving facilities and boat trips are available at the island.

There are notice boards informing the visitors of the rules and regulations of the island, meant for the people’s safety as well as the protection of the flora and fauna of the place. There is a also Discovery Center on the island which is home to orphan penguins who are fed by the keepers and by visitors.

A visit to Perth should always be complemented by a visit to Perth Penguin Island. A full day at the park is sufficient to explore, and engage in the various fun filled activities available. Several Perth serviced apartments are available in the vicinity and provide luxury accommodation. One of the prominent apartments in the area is the Somerset St Georges Terrace, operated by the internationally renowned Ascott Group.
