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.

This Island is seriously the best place to visit. Penguins look so damn cute. But the ferry charges are little too high. Other than that everything is so cool. I love this place
A very small and isolated island but very beautiful. The views from this island are stunning and so is the water around it. A lovely place to swim and have a picnic.
