“Visitors can get up close to the penguins at the Discovery Centre.”

Located 45 minutes south of Perth and a five minute ferry ride across Shoalwater Bay, Penguin Island is one of Australia's premier nature based tourism destinations. The star attraction is the little penguin - the smallest species in the world. Visitors can get up close to the penguins at the Discovery Centre where rangers host three daily penguin feedings (costs may apply). This is your best opportunity to see these creatures as they're shy and spend most daylight hours feeding at sea or hidden in their burrows. Penguin Island lies in the heart of the Shoalwater Islands Marine Park which abounds with wildlife including dolphins, sea lions, stingrays, pelicans and seabirds. Underwater there are reefs and sea-grass meadows for snorkelers to enjoy. On the island, nature lovers can explore boardwalks and lookouts. Enjoy a picnic area overlooking a beach - perfect for children to have a swim while parents relax. Penguin Island closes from early June to 14 September each year for the little penguin nesting season. Rockingham Wild Encounters operates an hourly ferry service to Penguin Island from 15 September to early June (costs apply). They also offer a range of cruises to explore more of the marine park.
