Penneshaw is a charming town that sits tucked on the north shoreline of the Dudley Peninsula and is a stop on many cruise line routes. Besides being home to Kangaroo Island’s main ferry port, the picturesque town has several tourist attractions and activities. While scenic Hog Bay Beach is a popular spot for a day of fun in the sun or a picnic, the Maritime and Folk Museum is for history buffs. Baudin Conservation Park and Ironstone Hill offer plenty of outdoor recreational activities as well as fabulous views of the landscape. Nighttime in Penneshaw is perfect for a tour of the little penguin colony to watch these fascinating creatures waddle up the beach to their burrows for the night. A vibrant farmer’s market, cozy eateries, and comfortable accommodations to suit all budgets help complete the picture.
