Lillico Beach

Natural Attractions

Lillico Beach is a coastal reserve and penguin colony near Devonport in north-west Tasmania.
Just ten minutes west of Devonport, this narrow coastal strip is home to a colony of Little Penguins, also known as Fairy Penguins. At around 30 centimetres high and weighing in at just one kilo, the Little Penguin is the world’s smallest penguin.
From the reserve’s viewing platform you can watch the birds return to their burrows each evening after a day of fishing in the open ocean.
Local volunteers and Parks and Wildlife rangers are on-site during the breeding season (September to May) and summer months (mid-December to mid-February).
