Penneshaw Penguin Centre

Take a nocturnal tour with an experienced guide, and learn about the fascinating life cycle of the Little Penguin. Group sizes are limited, so booking is advisable. You can book via Tourism Kangaroo Island, telephone 08 8553 1255.

Penguin numbers in South Australia and Kangaroo Island have suffered a serious decline in recent years. The colony at Penneshaw is much smaller than it used to be, but it is still possible to have intimate views of these beautiful birds. Because the numbers are small, on some nights it can be difficult to see them well, and patience may be needed.

The Penneshaw Penguin Centre is located within walking distance of Penneshaw accommodation and SeaLink Ferry Service.

Tour times vary according to season, current times are on the website.

The centre closes during February, as all the penguins are at sea at this time.
