Penola and Coonawarra on the Limestone Coast are famous for their Greats - great food, great wines and great Australians. Penola is the Limestone Coast's oldest town and has been home greats such as poets Adam Lindsay Gordon, John Shaw Neilson and Will Ogilvie and inspiring people like co-founder of the Congregation of the Sisters of Saint Joseph, Mary MacKillop, beatified in 1995 and expected soon to be Australia's first Saint.
Coonawarra is arguably Australia's most famous and finest wine district - its secret lies in a treasured rich red terra rossa soil, limestone, pure underground water and a long cool ripening season for the grapes. Coonawarra's 'red dirt' is only 12km long and 2km wide, and is all but taken up by vineyards with more than 20 Coonawarra wineries open seven days a week.. waiting for you to pop in for a drop! Centrally located between the heart of Coonawarra's wine district and the township of Penola, our accommodation
the ideal and convenient retreat for work or pleasure.
