Staff was helpful and provided us with a list of suggested places to dine, and more importantly, a list of attractions, their telephone numbers and opening hours for the month. We were happy that we decided to drop by as these information helped us to better plan our itinerary and to avoid "wasted" time!

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.

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.
