Make sure you look out for the Scotdesco signs on Eyre highway.......come in for a visit

Scotdesco is a small Aboriginal community situated both sides of Eyre highway 25 km west of Penong.  Just off the highway, Scotdesco presents a fantastic opportunity to speak with members of a Wirangu family group

who welcome visitors to stop in and chat about this area from an indigenous perspective.

Within the heart of wombat country, Scotdesco offers delicious espresso coffee to travellers and the opportunity to see the big wombat sculpture.  Visitors can also explore the art workshop, meet the artists and purchase affordable artwork. 

Anytime of the year is a great time to visit this unique community on the Far West Coast, and if travelling west to see the whales, drop in and see the wombat first.
