1. Low Head Penguin Colony Tour
What is it? Tasmania is home to several colonies of Little Penguins which, at just 40cm tall, are the smallest penguin species in the world. Low Head Penguin Tours offer penguin watching tours, including a bookable bus transfer from Launceston, each night just after sunset.
Why go? This is a rewarding, but responsible way to enjoy seeing Little Penguins. The tour’s environmentally friendly approach ensures the penguins are not disturbed as they make their way out of the water and into their burrows for the night.
