PENGUIN village, charming in name and in nature, is set on the beautifully scenic Bass Strait coastline. Excellent food, wine and coffee keep locals and visitors happy year-round, and the Sunday Penguin Market is browsers heaven with more than 300 undercover stalls.
When you have finished soaking up the water views at Penguin you may consider a walk at nearby Dial Range. This forest area offers a wide variety of recreational pursuits including individual trails for walking, mountain biking, trail biking and horse riding, or fishing in the Leven River.
