About the neighbourhood
Penguin is a quaint idyllic seaside village in NW Tasmania. It has a beautiful coastline and you can drive along the coastal route from Ulverstone all the way to Burnie. It is home to fairy penguins and there are certain places along the coast where you can go to watch the Penguin parents come ashore to their colonies each night to feed their young. Penguin's main asset is its crescent beach and its beach promenade. On Main Road there are two small super markets, some small curiosity shops, a number of cafes, a news agency, a chemist, a medical centre nearby and a gas station to fill up your tank. Don't miss the beautiful short coastal drive from Penguin to nearby Ulverstone. In reception you will find many brochures and maps to help you.
Getting around
The main way to see the sights is to have a car. There are local buses if you want to catch a bus to Ulverstone or Burnie, but the fastest way is to drive the Bass Highway. The roads in this area are excellent. In reception you will find a local map and many brochures and pamphlets to help you plan trips and excursions.
