Penguin Island is a unique nature reserve that is home to Western Australia’s largest colony of little penguins- the smallest species of penguin in the world.
Located 45 minutes south of Perth & a 5 minute ferry ride across the Shoalwater Islands Marine Park, Penguin Island is blessed with beautiful beaches & surrounded by dazzling, crystal clear waters.
Both locals and visitors from all over the world catch the ferry or take a cruise here to get up close to the wildlife, explore nature trails, swim, surf, snorkel or to enjoy a family picnic and the safe, sheltered beaches.
Penguin Island is open daily September 15th- early June (Western Australia Day Public Holiday). Closed December 25th for Christmas.
