Penguin Island

Located 45 minutes south of Perth and just a five minute ferry ride across the Shoalwater Islands Marine Park, Penguin Island is an unspoilt nature reserve and one of Perth's most popular day trip destinations. The star attraction is the little penguin - the smallest species in the world.
