Kangaroo Island YHA, Penneshaw

Kangaroo Island YHA is located amidst the beauty and serenity of Penneshaw, one of the most beautiful and unique townships in Australia, home to those famous little Kangaroo Island penguins, gateway to the island and its natural highlights and wildlife experiences. The penguin experience here at Penneshaw is one of the worlds best and the hostel is only metres away from the very accessible penguin colony.

Kangaroo Island is an all year around destination, with a Mediterranean climate. It’s cooler in summer and warmer in winter than the mainland. For the most special wildlife experiences, it is best to visit in the cooler months; the animals are more active and the rainy season provides fresh and plentiful supply of food.

Your visit to Kangaroo Island will be an unforgettable insight into a microcosm of Australian wildlife. Most of our wildlife is native to the island and due to isolation from their mainland relatives, have evolved to being subspecies of their own. They are rarely hunted and if approached carefully, you may gain some special intimate experiences.

Kangaroo Island YHA is very clean and comfortable, completely refurbished and upgraded in November 2003. All rooms are warm, cosy and modern with all linen provided. We are proud of this fabulous hostel overlooking beautiful Hog Bay beach. We offer a friendly and helpful service to all and we would love to see you here.

Where Are Australia's Best Beaches?

Australia's Best Beaches

Australia has miles and miles of shoreline but which beaches are really great? Ultimately it depends on what you're looking for in a beach. Pristine wilderness without a single footprint in sight, the sparkle of cosmopolitan high rise on the waters edge, the adrenalin pumping roar of a powerful surf beach, or quite simply the perfect white squeaky sand that squelches between your toes.

See our short list of Australia's best beaches.
