Penola Fantasy Model Railway and Rose's Tearoom
The Penola Fantasy Model Railway and Rose's Tearoom is home to the magical and colourful kingdom of Penolaraya.
The kingdom, covering two house blocks, is only 30 metres from the main street of Penola in the south east of South Australia.
The theme for the accredited tourist attraction is 'Colour, Magic, Myth and Legend'.
The kingdom has hosted visitors from every state and territory in Australia and none have seen anything like this, making the layout the only one of its type in the country. We have also had visitors from every continent on the planet (except Antarctica) and all of these people have said the same as those in Australia.
The Kingdom is basically divided into three realms; Rose's Tearoom; adjoining this in a large building is Merlin's World and outside visitors experience the Enchanted Water Gardens. A feature of Merlins World is the driving of trains by visitors on a large 'fantasy' layout. Its hands on fun for everyone.
Castles are the main architectural theme, with some even floating on water!
Penolaraya is designed for all ages to enjoy, so please bring your camera, so that you are able to record your Penolaraya experience.
