corporating Cygnet River, Brownlow, Kingscote, Nepean Bay, Western Cove, Wisanger
Situated on the shores of the beautiful Nepean Bay, with a panoramic view of the boat-studded harbour, Kingscote is the commercial and business hub of the Island. To the north there are steep cliffs that descend steeply to Reeves Point (old Kingscote), one of the most important heritage sites in South Australia. Kingscote is the Island's capital and a bright, bustling town of about 1,800 people. It is the centre of trade and commerce with banks, extensive shopping and services. A comprehensive guide to the attractions, activities and interesting walks is available from the Information Centre, shops and accommodation houses. The delightful Little Penguins have established themselves in the sandstone and clay cliffs in front of the town. Guided by KI Marine Centre, tours are conducted after dusk to see the penguins returning from their day's fishing. The jetty nearly always yields a feed of fish for the keen and patient angler. Tommy ruff, garfish, King George whiting and snook are the most commonly caught varieties.
