One day in Kingscote - what to do?

We will be in KI in February and doing private tours on Day 1 and Day 3....we will be at the Seaview Inn on Day 2 and won't have a car so looking for things to do within walking distance for the day or other ideas. We'll be covering a lot of the island during our tours. Is there a beach with chair rentals close by....where do you go to see the penguins at night...is there much to see in the town? Dinners will be at the Inn but lunch ideas would be great. All ideas welcomed!

There's not so much to see and do in Kingscote besides the Penguine Center (islanders please forgive me). But you could join the pelican feeding at the pier as well: tripadvisor.com/Attraction_Review-g261647-d3…

The Island Beehive would be another option: http://www.island-beehive.com.au/index.php

And finally there is Hope Cottage: www.nationaltrust.org.au/sa/hope-cottage

In Kingscote you can find some penguins on the stony shore with some luck. Anyway, it is a nice small town where you spend your day just walking along the shore.

Try too catch as much as possible of the great nature on KI!

Thanks for your feedback....the penguin site is closed in February while we are there but will look at the other sites you mentioned. I'm happy to stroll around and "relax" for a day but my husband needs to have some things to do - hence my post. The races are on the day after we leave so there might be some extra activity in town at that time that we will look into.

Cheers!
