Follow the little yellow Penguin steps and enjoy this beautiful town. Great accommodation options, good cafes, beautiful ocean views, awesome skate park for the kids and pretty cool mountain bike tracks so close to the town.

Nice area to walk along. Play ground near the BIg Penguin is a bonus for families with young children. Closeness to shops always a bonus.

Loved the beautiful foreshore at Penguin and of course had to stop to get a photo with the giant Penguin. Was grateful for the public toilets across the road too. Very pretty place and beautiful scenery along the coast.
