Locals like to tell the story of Ronnie’s Shop, which Ronnie was fixing up to be a farm stand. During construction Ronnie’s friends played a prank on him by painting the word "sex" on his sign. Instead of a farm stand, he left the sign as it was and opened this pub.

This is a nice quick curiosity stop. Not much to it but a small gift shop, a Bar and food bar. Good milkshake. One in our group left a pair of panties for fun! A good place for a pit stop and a laugh!

We sometimes drive along Route 62. Not the best road in SA but OK. The biking community seem to really like it. However, R 62 takes one through beautiful towns of a bygone era. Then after Barrydale during the journey north east on the right...More

Hi Hannah O, unfortunately they do not offer accommodation. Your best bet is to stay in a nice B&B in Barrydale. Barrydale is a nice artistic town with good accommodation and restaurants.
