Blessed with white sandy beaches and surrounded by crystal clear waters, Penguin Island is just 45 minutes south of Perth and lies a 5 minute ferry ride away in the heart of the Shoalwater Islands Marine Park. The wildlife is the star attraction. Join a cruise to see wild dolphins and rare Australian sea lions before getting up close with the worlds smallest penguins! Island rangers present penguin feedings at 10.30am, 12.30 and 2.30pm daily. Getting here is easy with ferries departing hourly from 9am to 3pm. Spend as long or as little as you like to swim, snorkel, picnic and explore the nature trails and beaches before catching a return ferry at your leisure.
Penguin Island is open daily from September 15 to early June. The Island closes for the winter penguin nesting season the day after the WA public holiday. Limited access is still available during this time through local cruise operator Rockingham Wild Encounters who are licensed to take visitors on guided walks as part of their winter cruise program.
