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 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

Clean, well displayed information centre with a museum display at the rear of the building. On this particular day it is a shame that the staff member was unhelpful and disinterested. The playground nearby is fantastic with picnic tables and lots of fun!
