Are there places near Sydney, Australia where one can see penguins in the wild (not in a zoo)? If so, what's the best way to catch a glimpse of these cute creatures?
I have read some information about seeing them at Shelly Beach in Manly but I'm not sure that those posts are up-to-date.
EDIT: "near Sydney" in this case means some place that can be done on a day trip from Sydney.
While the penguin parade as mentioned by hippietrail in the answer below sounds like a fantastic experience, I was looking for something a bit less... formal? Something like the penguin experience at Boulders Beach in South Africa.
