These windmills are set in a perfect spot. Enjoyed reading the history provided. The windmill museum at Penong is definitely the highlight for me from our stay there.

This quirky museum has a multitude of different windmills that have been an important part of Australia's farming heritage.
In particular the large 35ft windmill has a fabulous history from the Commonwealth Railways and it is very impressive as one of the largest windmills ever built.
This is a very worthwhile stop at Penong. The kids will enjoy pumping water on the swing too.

This as a great place to see various sizes of windmills. From the smallest to the largest. Most are functional. Be amazed by the water engineering that has contributed to arid areas access to artesian water. There is a wishing well with a swing. have some fun.

We fell across this attraction by accident. As we were driving through Penong there was a sign to the largest windmill so we decided to stop and have a look.

It’s free to look at and drive around, and it was great to see so many windmills of varying sizes and heights. We really enjoyed our visit.

This is an outdoor museum and it’s free entry. Lots of restored windmills placed within a park. Try the swing that pumps the water. A good kids activity especially if you are looking to break your journey,just off the Eyre Highway.

Each time I visit Penong, I make several trips to the windmill museum, as it's a walk-through, accessible and very interesting. Which ones are spinning, or not? Where did they come from and so what did they represent? At night they are illuminated and visually stunning. The photos come out well, too.

There is not a lot going for Penong but it seems that windmills are its claim to fame. One assumes there was underground water as the place has many windmills as you go in and the museum has a quirky collection of old windmills that was very interesting. They claim to have the largest; great if its is correct.

This is awesome. Most interesting. Well constructed and informative signage. Barely a detour and free to visit. Really worth seeing to explore some of our country's history.

Really interesting and well thought out collection of windmills - this was obviously a labour of love for the volunteers who sourced, collected, repaired and constructed the windmills.

Just wished there was a bit more information explaining how the windmills worked for water pumping and for power generation.

Definitely worth a visit.
