Children love the penguins, especially the summer photocall at the end of the talk and feed sessions (please note this event does not run during the breeding season). During the ‘Flight of the Rainbows’ you can buy small pots of nectar to feed the forty plus Lorikeets that come swooping out from there enclosure down onto the awaiting crowd. It’s a fantastic experience!
