The State Government has taken steps to protect the vulnerable little penguins at Penguin Island, following a concerning decline in their population. Penguin Island will be closed to the public on the hottest days of the year and during the extended breeding season to protect the population. If the weather is forecast to be 35 degrees or higher (taken from the island, not the mainland), visitors will not be permitted on Penguin Island. Decisions on this hot weather closure will be made on the day prior. Please be aware of this potential closure due to hot weather when making reservations to avoid any disappointment that this may cause.
