One of the most visually-stunning creatures in Antarctica and second in size only to the Emperor Penguin. With their vibrant plumage, impressive stature and majestic nature, king penguins are mesmerising animals to watch.
Gentoo penguins are curious and outgoing characters with a seemingly endless supply of energy. These cute and cheeky penguins are also the fastest underwater swimming bird in the world.
It is widely believed that at one point in the Earth's history, penguins could actually fly! Two penguin species call SEA LIFE Melbourne Aquarium home. You'll love to watch them get up to mischief on the ice in our Penguin Playground zone.
