The team of girls working here are well informed, polite and always ready to assist. The display of local Limestone Coast information is well presented and displayed as is the local small museum of current exhibitions

Lots of information available. The historical displays give a real flavour of the may sides of the area's history. Includes special Anzac section at present.

If you are in to Wine, this is a great place to start.....We spent 3 days in Penola and this place was very helpful in every way. They have a list of all the winery's and attractions. Well worth spending an half hour in there to get your bearings

We called in looking for accommodation and they could not have been more helpful. They hooked us up with a two bedroom unit that we wouldn't have found otherwise. The place has a gallery of prize winners from the John Shaw Nielsen art prize (who would have known he was from here! ) that is well worth stopping by for.... More

We spent 3 weeks driving from Melbourne to Adelaide on the Great Ocean Road, with diversions up to Halls Gap and the Grampians. Having no fixed itinerary, we called in each afternoon to Information centers and just like this one, we were received graciously, given lots of ideas on what to do, then offered help finding accommodation for the same...

The info center at Penola was a weath of information with our friendly staffer. She not only gave us pertinent info on why we sought out the center but also asked where we were heading and supplied us with maps and booklets for our road trip. She showed enthusiasm for her field of expertise.

They have a great little museum of all things Scottish here. Very imformative. All tours are well laid out and help is plentiful. The free walk brochure is a beauty and well worth the effort. Allow a little time here, it will be well worth your time
