Penneshaw Hotel, Kangaroo Island

MOSS Band  – 31st Penneshaw Hotel, Kangaroo Island


Welcome to the Penneshaw Hotel, Kangaroo Island.

“Is Penneshaw Hotel the only hotel in the world where you can have a beer and look at Australia?”


The Penneshaw Hotel has commanding and uninterrupted views over Backstairs Passage with absolute water frontage from a cliff-top and now the newly completed spacious tiered outdoor dining and bar area offers unsurpassed opportunities to enjoy this view. The 106-year-old hotel is making the most of its prime position with major internal and external renovations, having just been completed in 2011. Glass walls at the front of the outdoor area and large windows opening to the sea air capture the light and view for all diners in all weather with new modern alfresco furniture.


The Penneshaw Hotel – also known as the “Penny”- has both inside and alfresco dining areas giving the hotel a relaxed casual feel. However, there’s nothing casual about the excellent presentation and consistency of the food. With a superb wine list, some of the best pub food SA has to offer and competitive function options the Penny is a perfect crowd pleaser.


The restaurant menu includes some great pub classics as well as some gourmet specials and lighter options. Try our famous KI Whiting, or a Seafood Platter for two.
