Can get really windy around here so wrap up warm or wait till the Summer! Beautiful walks along the boardwalks, which are all flat and stroller suitable. Can get some really pretty views of the ocean and coastline. Parking at the top with a cafe to get drinks from.

If anything at all, do visit for the excellent view. Didn't manage to visit the attraction even though I had paid for it due to the large crowd. However, I did manage to walk around the area and view the excellent scenery. There is an alternative little road that leads to the Penguin Parade. Do take the road for an... More

We visited on our way to the Penguins and spent about half an hour on the boardwalks as it was wet and cold. The scenery was impressive although the visitor centre was somewhat disappointing if you didn't visit the Artic Experience, that said it was a dry and warm shelter when it bucketed it down... :-) Be aware, the road...

The view was stunning and staff were nice. We got there pretty close to their closing time so we did not get to do or see much. We only had something to eat which was pretty decent food.

Well worth a visit and a walk on the boardwalks even if it is windy. A few penguins were peeking out of their timber nests. The Nobbies are pretty impressive.

A pleasant walk along the board walks is free for anyone and everyone that visits. Plenty of nature to see, from waves crashing against the roach to seals and seagulls. If in the area, have a look.

View here is really amazing but pity that houseflies infestation is not being put under control making it difficult for families with young kids to stay slightly longer.

This is a wondrous world of Virtual Reality. You really think there are Orca's swimming right in front of you. Plenty of hands on activities for the kids. Great place to visit prior to the Penguin Parade, its only a few minutes away .Great gift shop.
