Penguin-inspired breaks in New Zealand and Australia

Penguins will be making a big impact this Christmas, thanks to a new animated adventure set to grab the nation's attention.

With this in mind, travel website Isango has come up with its top penguin-inspired breaks in Australia and New Zealand.

Penguin Place on the Otago Peninsula, New Zealand
Unique to New Zealand, yellow-eyed penguins have their own special reservation on the Otago Peninsula on the South Island's south-east coast.

Penguins on Parade, Philip Island, Australia
Emerging from the sea around sunset, these "fairy penguins" can be seen waddling up Summerland Beach to their burrows. Elevated boardwalks and special viewing areas give holidaymakers a great chance to witness the penguins first-hand.
