Low Head Penguin Tours


Low Head Penguin Tours offer penguin watching tours at Low Head in northern Tasmania. Operating at the mouth of the Tamar River, the tours offer a fascinating insight into the Little penguins (also known as Fairy penguins) making their nightly journey to their burrows.
The tour is operated along environmentally sensitive lines to ensure the penguins are not disturbed. Learn about the Little penguins and how most retain the same mate for life.
Tours run each night just after sunset. Pick-up from Launceston can be arranged for an additional fee.
