What travelers say:

Although the town is so peaceful, the pier at the other end is about to become lively. The smallest blue penguin in the world is at 7-9 o'clock in the evening, which is the time for them to return. There are two ways to appreciate the penguins coming to the nest, one is to pay a ticket to the Blue Penguin Conservation Center to watch the penguins come back, and the other is to wait outside for the wild blue penguins to come back. Blue penguins are not like yellow-eyed penguins. They are mammals in groups, so you can see them waiting for their companions to come ashore and then return to their nests together.
