Trip Planner: South Pacific / Australia / Western Australia / Greater Perth / Rockingham / Penguin Island
Situated inside the Shoalwater Islands Marine Park, Penguin Island is home to a colony of little penguins, the largest population of birds in Western Australia. Regular ferries carry tourists to and from the island, and access is also available by private boat. Only a small population of captive penguins can be viewed, but the island offers many other sights, including nesting seabirds and a large colony of pelicans, numbering nearly 500 birds. You can also swim, snorkel, take kite-boarding lessons, join kayaking tours, or simply enjoy a picnic. Remember to take your own food and drink, as none can be purchased on the island. Make Penguin Island a centerpiece of your Rockingham vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Rockingham attractions planner.
