Penguin Encounter reviews
Theme Park Insider readers offer their ratings and reviews for Penguin Encounter, a walk through at Seaworld Gold Coast.
Written by Nathan Alexander
The stunning new exhibit is home to the world's second largest penguin species, the King penguin which stands almost one metre tall. As well as the agile Gentoo penguin with its distinctive bright red bill and long tail.
The spectacular new exhibit features icy rock formations and a crystal clear pool. Witness the agility and grace of these incredible penguins from spacious elevated and underwater viewing areas.
The new Penguin Encounter exhibit makes Sea World the only place in Australia where you can see King, Gentoo and Fairy penguins in the one location.
This is a good exhibit, it's a large area where you see the penguins swimming in a glass walled aquarium, or you can walk up and see them above ground in an icy area. Although it's large it does seem a little crowded with different types of penguins in together. Also, this is Queensland, our climate is similar to California's - like the polar bears it's a bit discordant for them to be here at all. At least the penguins seem to be in a really cold environment. - Jocelyn De
