Little Penguin Observation Centre, Burnie
From September to March, every evening around dusk little (fairy) penguins noisily waddle around Parsonage Point on the western end of West Beach in Burnie to nest in their igloo-like burrows. And each and every evening during the season, volunteers from Friends of Burnie Penguins come to watch the show and offer free talks and interpretative tours to share their knowledge along with fun facts about these adorable creatures—the smallest of all penguins—like how they can dive nearly 100 feet down, and only sleep for four minutes at a time. Little penguins don’t migrate so this is Burnie’s home colony, which the Friends have gotten to know well and love over the years. That much is obvious.
