Very good informative & friendly information centre with lots of brochures & information plentiful. My only criticism would be that it is sometimes difficult to get really honest information as the staff seem to feel as though they cannot favour one business over another. Makes it very difficult when trying to make travel plans & need to read between the... More

This is the first place with information once you alight from the ferry. Has lots of information but closes early - 4pm on weekends. Across the road is a little museum in the old school house which is worth a visit - it's run by volunteers.

It is a well presented information centre with lots of flyers of the sights and tours available. It also has many trinkets of the Island.

The Penneshaw information center was very informative to set you up for the island travel. I would like to say here that the Penneshaw caravan park is very sub standard and it would appear the owners is running it down for there own reasons what ever that is. I feel KI tourist authority is having all there hard work undone... More

The staff were most pleasant and helpful and the information on display and to take away was extensive. There was also a well stocked and interesting little shop. Worth a visit.

This should a first port of call for all visitors to Kangaroo Island. The staff were friendly and knowledgeable and will give you great ideas about what to see and do when on the island.

When we asked the old bloke if there was anything to do in Penneshaw his reply was "there's nothing to do in Penneshaw"! We were shocked with this reply which we have never come across in whole Australia! When we showed some interest... More
