Scotdesco Aboriginal Community

Scotdesco is a small Aboriginal community situated either side of the Eyre highway, 25 kilometres west of Penong. Just off the highway, Scotdesco presents a fantastic opportunity to speak with members of a Wirangu family group who represent the spirit of determination within Aboriginal people. This relaxed, well established family community invites visitors to stop in and chat with welcoming locals about the area from an indigenous perspective. In the heart of wombat country, visitors can see the big wombat sculpture and get delicious espresso coffee. Visitors can also explore the art workshop, meet the artists and purchase affordable artwork. Anytime of year is a great time to visit this unique community on the far west coast. If you're travelling west to see the whales, drop in and see the wombat first.
