Get up close and personal with penguins at Seno Otway, a protected environment in which the animals are sheltered and bred. Famous for burrowing into the ground to make their shelter, the penguins remain the reserve's main attraction, but you'll also get the chance to spot rheas and condors in a landscape of plains and gentle slopes.
