Aptly named because of the Penguins who call this island their home, Penguin Island is a 45 minute drive from Perth. The island hosts the biggest colony of Penguins in Western Australia. These are also the smallest species of penguins in the world. There are more than 1000 penguins roaming about this island. Nevertheless, it is not as easy as you think to spot one when you visit. Luckily for you, there are other things you can observe and do while waiting to see a penguin come waddling by. Read below for more details of Day Trips from Perth to Penguin Island.

The fairy penguins, the smallest breed of penguins, are very shy creatures and hence it is hard to see them in the wild. Mostly they spend the whole day in the water and return to the island only once night has fallen. Therefore, in order to actually see some penguins, you can visit the Discovery Centre. This is a great opportunity to observe how the rangers and the birds interact with each other. These shy creatures will only allow feedings from their own carer. However, visitors can come see them get fed at the allocated times.
