It’s gloves-on fun as you make sure that every bird gets its fair share while the keeper chats to you about Perth Zoo’s colony and how WA penguins are unique!

The perfect animal activity for a small family, you won’t be getting wet on this experience…unless a penguin decides to express its flappy gratitude!
