Meet Our Penguins

Get Up Close at SEA LIFE Sunshine Coast

Get up close to our playful penguins

Meet and learn everything there is to know about our penguins...

Step inside the Little Blue Penguins’ habitat at SEA LIFE Sunshine Coast for the Penguin Encounter, where you can meet our adorable colony of birds and hand feed them a fishy feast!

Penguin Encounter

Each one of our playful penguins has a distinct personality, which you can get to know as you feed the birds their banquet and watch up close as they waddle, swim and play! 

The Penguin Encounter includes a unique behind the scenes tour where you can discover how we care for these cheeky little creatures and ask our team of penguin experts anything you want to know.

This brand new experience runs from Thursday – Monday at 9:45am, plus an additional feed at 2:15pm during Queensland school holidays only.

Guests must be aged 5+ to participate; all guests under 18+ must be accompanied by a participating adult (there are 2 encounters available per session).

Places are limited, so book early!
