Start the day at Pennington Bay situated at the narrowest part of the Island. This Southern Ocean beach is a popular fishing and surf spot. Enjoy home-baked morning tea overlooking extensive wave-cut platforms and contrasting deep aqua water.
Travelling east we get endless views of the serene marine sanctuary which is Pelican Lagoon. Adjacent the lagoon is excellent kangaroo habitat and the tea-tree thickets harbour tammar wallabies sheltering from their constant predator – the wedge-tailed eagle.
The deep alluvial soils of Willson River overlying limestone are perfect for grapevines. The team at False Cape Wines have a newly opened cellar door experience overlooking well-established vines. We will sample their range of wines and then enjoy a local produce picnic nearby.
Cape Willoughby Lighthouse, established in 1852, stands tall on an exposed headland. Explore the lighthouse precinct and the granite canyon known as “Devil’s Kitchen”. This lighthouse shines a warning for sailors traversing the treacherous Backstair’s Passage. The headland provides protection from ocean swells for Antechamber Bay. Take a walk on the long white sandy beach or seek out birds on the quiet backwaters of the Chapman River estuary.
End the day in Penneshaw which we can access via a 4WD trail known as Binney’s Track. This runs adjacent to Baudin Conservation Park which provides habitat for a range of wildlife including glossy black-cockatoos, kangaroos, wallabies and echidnas.
