What is the Penguin Parade?

Phillip Island (a two hour drive south from Melbourne) is home to a huge 32,000 Little Penguins, making it the world's largest colony of this super cute seabird. Each night, at sunset, the penguins return from a day of swimming and fishing to parade (or waddle) up the beach to their nests on Phillip Island beach.

What are Little Penguins?

These penguins are the smallest in the world! Coming in at a maximum height of 33cm and weighing around 1kg, these birds are seriously small. You can only find this particular type of penguin in Australia and New Zealand - most well known is the colony at the Phillip Island Nature Park.

Why have they only just started streaming this!?

Due to Covid-19, all the Phillip Island Nature Parks are shut to visitors, but the Park Rangers still want wanted to share this adorable natural phenomenon with the world. The 30 minute stream will run nightly for the foreseeable future - yay!

Where can I watch Live Penguin TV?

You can watch the free live stream at 6pm AEST - that's 9AM UK time - on YouTube here, or you can tune in via Facebook here.
