  • These carvings are just as bad as the ones at Dartmoor. They look like they were carved and then filled in with plastic wood and given a coating of a sickly unnatural looking varnish. At least I learn...  more »
  • Didn't know there is any place like this, accidentally stopped there but worth it as you can see the nice work of wood there with some history related. Good for a break and photos.  more »
  • Was a very nice way to break up a trip and check out these carvings and learn some history. Penola has a very interesting history!  more »

  • Nearly drove past this place without noticing, but lucky we did, and did a u-turn back to it. Great carvings. Reminded us of ones we had seen in Dartmoor, Vic, only a week earlier on our holiday (another suggested stop). We stopped here close to dusk and it was getting bitterly cold. A pity, as our photos were not that great and we could have spent more time. Read the storyboards to get a feel of what you're seeing.
  • Beautifully crafted wooden statues. Acts as a nice background for a quick stop. Would be better if they made a few more statues.
  • Great spot to stop to have a break if you've been driving for a while. Check out the wood carvings.
  • Beautiful place in the middle of nowhere that really should be shown as a landmark
