Just off Sealink on the way to Kingscote. They have as good range of brochures for Kangaroo Island attractions, activities, accommodation, wineries & eateries. The staff were very friendly & knowledgeable. They have a small souvenir/gift shop. You can get your Island Parks pass here to cover your visits to KI’s national parks.

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
