Penneshaw is the arrival point of the ferry from Port Jervis.
It is a quiet little seaside town.
There are a few hostels and hotels, some little shops where you can buy local crafts, a liquor store that has many Australian wines, and a few places to go out to eat.

Little Blue Penguins

The biggest attraction here in Pennshaw is the Little Blue Penguins that nest along the shore.

    I love little penguins. We had one at the zoo who had been hand-raised and was convinced he was a human - then he surprised us all by laying an egg! I never knew there were tamars on KI. Nice page. leyle

    What an extraordinary home you leased for a week! How fortunate to be able to see the penguins at night, the Wallabies, as well as the dolphins! I'll bet you loved it here, huh? Loved reading this page.

    Dolphins, little penguins and Wallabies. Cool or what!! What. a unique idea to have a restaurant in an old Post Office. Looks like it got your "stamp" of approval. hehe!
