The penguins are suffering badly on Granite Island and now the facility is closed If our council lowered the wages of the CEOs and spent more on making Victor a vibrant place to visit again I am sure the penguins would return

If you are staying in Victor Harbor with the kids you should visit the place! Little penguins are very cute and kids love to see them! There are not so many organised places in Australia were you can enjoy these creatures in their natural habitat.

Very enjoyable and informative evening with Steve from the Granite Island Penguin Centre. We saw a number of penguins plus a Long Nosed Seal and Dolphins chasing fish and squid. Highly recommended and not to be missed when you are in Victor Harbor.

A fantastic and informative tour and we did see penguins :) These little guys were so cute and we excitedly watched the adult fairy penguins waddle back to their young to feed them.

Had visited this centre on a previous trip and found it to be very well run and informative. It is a shame it has now closed. You can still see the Little Penguins on Granite Island by booking an evening guided tour with the Wildlife...More
