Helpful staff. Lots of brochures just what we needed as we are first time visitors to this region. Didn’t realise the area had so much to offer. Lady behind the counter gave us plenty of time to help plan some days

We arrived later than their opening hours and initially were disappointed - until we spied a chest in which they store large well-stocked bags of local information. We loved reading through all the things to see and do. Thank you for giving this thoughtful service!!

We needed information for our few days wine tastings. Really surprised at the quality of the information and the wealth of local information available in the museum connected to the information centre Museum was a gold coin donation Great idea if you stay in penola

Used them a few times. The lady was excellent at helping us find our accomodation, telling us what was opening for dinner on particular days and recommending some woodturning in the local area. A pleasure to deal with

Current bike maps were out of date and no clear bike paths have been marked. Need to look at options as this area is great for riding and visiting wineries.

The volunteer could not have been more helpful. The information sheets and displays were good. The John Riddoch Centre attached is a must to understand the area and its histodlyry! The toilets were clean. Parking at the side was plentiful! And it was wheelchair friendly...More

Learn more about the early days of Penola and early history of Australia. Great way to fill in the morning before some wine tasting in the region in the afternoon.
