Lovely spot! Would have stayed longer than one night however there is a homeless family staying there at the moment, for the next 10 days or so. The kids seem kind enough, but don't really understand privacy and we didn't feel entirely safe leaving our van unattended. It was really sad and we wish them all the best but if you see swags set up on the right as you drive in to the grassy area you'll know they are still there. But this is a lovely base for the area for a couple of nights.



Wonderful spot for the night. Shame someone has done doughnuts in the wet grass but this could be local youth. The area is well maintained and clean. Thanks Penola

Great facility, well maintained, wide open spaces and very rural atmosphere. Based ourselves for two nights to explore Penola town and do some wine tastings. Excellent arboretum right there to walk around and highly recommend. Never get anything like this in W.A. Thanks Penola.
