Our colony of Little Penguins have called Diamond Island Resort home for hundreds of years.
Year round, every night at about dusk, we welcome Little Penguins into our resort. They nest, lay their eggs and raise their young on-site. Although shy, they are curious creatures and sometimes they even pay our guests a visit!
Diamond Island Resort loves sharing our home with these amazing animals in their natural habitat and welcomes our guests to join us nightly in welcoming them!
Our resort is one of the very few eco-tourism establishments around the world where guests get such an up close, safe and unique experience with nature.
