The Penguin Parade happens every evening at dusk. It takes about 50 minutes from the time the world's smallest penguins emerge from the ocean and cross the beach to their sand dune burrows.
Make sure you dress in warm clothing as it can get very cold waiting, and there is no shelter.
In good weather up to 3000 people can be watching the penguins so make sure you get there early.
Prices start at $17 for adults. The dearest is $60, but this is limited to only about 10 people. You are taken by a ranger to a different spot, away from the main group of tourists, where you sit directly on the sand, and watch these gorgeous liitle penguins waddle right past you.
Check out the various tourist guides as they usually have a discount coupon to buy your tickets cheaper.

Directions: Follow the signs, there are plenty.
