Penneshaw is the gateway to Kangaroo Island however once you arrive here you’ll find the gateway is a destination in itself.

Penneshaw has stunning views across Backstairs Passage to the Fleurieu Peninsula, abundant wildlife – wallabies, penguins, echidnas in the town itself – walking trails, quiet fishing spots, a golf course, a conservation park on the edge of town, and a gem of a local museum.

Monthly Farmers market and daily ferry arrivals and departures bring the little town alive and buzzing and then returns to its peaceful relaxing ambience.

If you’re looking to escape the rat race and still do business, Penneshaw may be ideal. It is connected to the world by broadband, and the surroundings are conducive to creative or thoughtful enterprise. The town and surrounding Dudley Peninsula boast accountants, consultants, editors, writers and artists whose business dealings extend to the mainland and beyond. 

Only three hours from Adelaide by car and ferry Penneshaw is perfect for a weekend or a lifetime!
