As ozerie said, Phillip Island Nature Park is the best place to go for hands-on penguin experience.

I volunteered there in the summer of 2000, and it was a fantastic experience. They had some penguins that were recovering from an oil spill - that I was allowed to help with - but the volunteer program I was in was based on School Holiday activities for children.

They offered accomidation for the volunteers, and the people I met there were all nice and friendly. :)

Good luck!
