Happy feet: New penguin parade visitor centre opensUser role is=
Array (  => editor )
Phillip Island’s iconic Penguin Parade, one of Australia’s most popular tourist attractions, has officially opened the doors to its breath-taking new visitor centre. The new centre offers fun and interactive activities for the whole family, including the interpretive habitat space which provides a ‘penguins-eye’ view of the world, complete with life-size grass tussocks and cinematic projections.
There is a state-of-the-art theatre, a dedicated education wing and a range of dining and retail options.
Australia’s largest colony of little penguins will benefit from a key aspect of the development with the restoration of more than six hectares of penguin habitat on the site of the old visitor centre and coach parking areas, creating homes for an additional 1,400 breeding penguins.
