Penneshaw is where the ferry port is on Kangaroo Island, and there is plenty to do around this area. You can learn a lot about Kangaroo Island at the Penneshaw Maritime and Folk Museum, as well as on the daily tours around Cape Willoughby Lighthouse. There are also several water activities around Penneshaw, including bathing on the beach at Hog's Bay, surfing at Pennington Bay and canoeing on the Chapman River.

Penneshaw is also where the penguin tour departs in the evening, allowing you to see plenty of little penguins, which is fantastic.

There are several camping sites in the area, as well as a couple of hostels where you can stay if you want to explore this part of the island for a few days.
