Kangaroo Island Penguin Centre
Join us for personalised, guided tours of both the Fairy Penguin Colony and our Saltwater Aquariums and understand more about the fascinating sea life of Kangaroo Island's rock pools, sea gardens, reefs and open seas.
Our evening tour consists of feeding the fish in the aquariums as our guides give an informative talk about each tank. Weather permitting a brief talk about the evening stars follows and then the guides take our visitors on a walking tour of the foreshore colony, explaining some of the interesting habits of the Fairy Penguin.
During daylight saving, tours start at 8.30pm and 9.30pm and during winter time the tours begin at 7.30pm and 8.30pm. Pelican feeding takes place daily at 5pm, at the waters edge behind the Kangaroo Island Penguin Centre on the Kingscote Wharf.
We have a retail area and the artwork of Jenny Clapson is on display and for sale in the front of the building.
Wheelchair access is available in the Penguin Centre building and the Penguin Colony's boardwalk is suitable for wheelchairs. Assistance may be required during the tour. Disabled parking is available.

While all Kangaroo Island accommodation is suitable for exploring the Island, particular regions of the Island afford different advantages. Whether you are arriving in the evening and need accommodation close to the ferry port, you prefer to be close to shops and restaurants or if you really want to get away from it all and stay in a more secluded area, there is a region on Kangaroo Island to suit everyone.
