We loved taking a penguin tour here. Staff were knowledgeable, the area was beautiful, and of course the penguins were great!

The penguins and albatrosses, lighthouses etc. are special but this is the place with history and great meaning that you should include in your tour.

We went here because the tour that walks with the penguins start here. Other than that not much to do. Years ago they use to have more but not now.

To see how rather recent history has influenced the development of the region, how well-meant intervention to save the 'savages' and their souls, has actually contributed to their extinction.
