I don't remember there being penguins there. But there are tours you can do. Information is available from the tourist information centre.
You won't see any penguins here as its inland. the only birds you'd see are bush birds e.g. rifleman etc. Sorry for the delay I don't check the website often.
At the penguin habitat on the peninsula, not a problem during the day, but I didn't see any at orokonui ecosanctuary. Dunedin is fantastic!
Sorry mate, the wee penguins don't get up that far. The sanctuary is too far from the shore.
