We called by not knowing about the market they have so a return visit is in the cards, it was on our way up to Stanley, and is pretty little town with a caravan park and everything for a holiday, the beach has a sandy beach but like most of the coast it is very rocky for the most part.
First settled in 1861 as a timber town, Penguin sits quietly on the Bass Strait coast between Ulverstone and Burnie, divided from the hinterlands by the forests of the Dial Range. It's home to around 4,000 locals, but Penguin's population swells every Sunday for the giant undercover craft and vintage market. And if Little Penguins were allowed to fill out the census, the population would double again during the summer breeding season.
Just up the road towards Stanley is a treat to visit the Table Cape Lighthouse, just to see the farmland before you get to the lighthouse is stunning.
