Friendly Fauna and Fantastic Feasts

Penneshaw is a small township on Kangaroo Island, located a short45 minute ferry ride from the mainland port of Cape Jervis. The town overlooks Backstairs Passage, with mainland South Australia just 16 kilometres across the water. The Kangaroo Island Sealink ferries passengers from Cape Jervis to Penneshaw several times each day.

There’s lots to do on Kangaroo Island, and the beautiful beach at Penneshaw, known as Hog Bay, is a great place to begin any holiday. Here you can laze on the sand and enjoy a refreshing dip, while also enjoying the great picnic spots and barbecuing facilities available. It’s a perfect place for families to relax.

Penneshaw is also well-known for its colony of fairy penguins who waddle onto the beach every evening before bedding down in their burrows for the night. Guided tours are run nightly by the National Parks & Wildlife Service (NPWS) and depart just after sunset from the Penguin Interpretative Centre, located just beside the main ferry terminal.

Venture around Kangaroo Island in your hire car

The penguins thrive here because conditions are perfect, with plenty of fish in the clean waters surrounding the island. Tourists are also kept at a safe distance from the penguins with a specially built raised viewing platform above the penguins’ route from the rocks to their cliffside burrows.

There’s plenty of other wildlife to be seen on Kangaroo Island and a rental car will get you where you need to go. Head for Seal Bay where’ll you’ll encounter a seal colony. Here you can watch these magnificent creatures go about their daily lives as they laze on the sand and feed in the water. While you’re here, why not pack a picnic blanket and head for the dunes for a spot of lunch overlooking the ocean.

There’s so much to do on Kangaroo Island. It’s a beautiful destination, rich with wildlife and lush landscape at every turn. Jump in a rental car and go exploring today.
