    ... reasonably priced meal was probably the best pub meal we have ever experienced. We all ate in excess, not wanting to leave any of the delicious food on our plates.

We pulled up at Penola, the home of Mary MacKillop, the first saint (and only?) in Australia. We only had a quick look at the school and church, choosing not to go through the interpretive centre.
