Home » Places » Australia » South australia » Penneshaw » Christmas Cove to Frenchmans Rock | Dog Friendly Walk in Kangaroo Island

THE EXPERIENCE

An easy 30 minute walk starting from Christmas Cove, a unique cove containing the Penneshaw Boat Ramp and a small marina. The cove has significant geological formations, glacial rocks occur on the walls of the cove. The cove is also significant in the history of Penneshaw being charted by Matthew Flinders.

Continue the walk to North Terrace Gardens. While there are no facilities within this area, it is an ideal place to relax, watch the whales and dolphins watching or stop for a lunch.

Stroll along the Penneshaw Beach to the eastern end. This is where you find Frenchmans Rock, marking the location where Nicholas Baudin found freshwater when navigating the North Coast of Kangaroo Island in 1802.

Above Frenchmans Rock is the Contemplation Seat where you can site and remember the Aboriginal Women who were brought to Kangaroo Island to assist the whalers and sealers before official settlement of the island.
