For the unique combination of the beyond adorable Fairy Penguins and car racing. Endearingly called the Penguin Parade these ooohh and aaahhhh inducing creatures slide and waddle in from their days fishing each sunset to the absolute delight of everyone watching - seriously, too-cute-for-words. They come up in lines and head towards their burrows in the sand dunes and you can watch them from the beach of from special viewing platforms - it’s touristy but you can’t miss out on it. The Grand Prix circuit hosts car racing of all kinds and there are car racing themed exhibitions etc. around the track. There is also good surfing.
