Enjoy spectacular views from the deck while sipping on a ‘Dudley Bubbly’, browse through a range of wool and natural fibre clothing, Kangaroo Island produce and artworks, or enjoy a coffee and light meal. False Cape Wines established a vineyard on Dudley Peninsula in 1999 and has been consistently producing quality whites and reds ever since. These wines are widely available around the Island. Sunset Winery offers visitors stunning, elevated 180 degree sea views of Eastern Cove and beyond. Enjoy complimentary wine tasting, or relax on the outdoor deck with a glass of wine and savoury platter, featuring local and regional produce. Coffee and muffins are available for purchase, as is a range of local farm produce and art. Heritage and culture In 1803, Captain Nicolas Baudin, the French explorer, anchored in Hog Bay and sent a party ashore to find fresh meat and water. While waiting for the water casks to fill, one of the sailors carved on a nearby rock, ‘Expedition de découverte par le commandant Baudin sur Le Géographe 1803’. Translated, it reads: ‘Expedition of discovery by Captain Baudin in Le Géographe 1803’. The original stone is now housed at the Kangaroo Island Gateway Visitor Information Centre and a replica Frenchman’s Rock can be viewed under the white dome next to Hog Bay Beach. Make sure you drop by the Penneshaw Maritime and Folk Museum. At Rob’s Shearing Demos, meet Rob Howard and his dog Toby on their working farm, seven kilometres outside Penneshaw. He demonstrates shearing, wool classing and hand-spinning, as well as mustering and yarding with Toby.
