About Penola

Penola and the wine district of Coonawarra are nationally and internationally reknown for great wines (particularly red wine) and today the region also offers great food. The secret to its great wines lies in the combination of rich red terra rossa soil, limestone, pure underground water and a long cool ripening season for the grapes.

The town is also known as the central location in the life of Blessed Mary McKillop, the first Australian to gain Sainthood.

Flinders University supports students undertaking rural work-integrated learning placements through the provision of accommodation services. Flinders managed accommodation is available in a number of towns within rural South Australia, Northern Territory and western Victoria.

For Flinders managed properties, you can use the online booking system to check the availability of accommodation in the area you will be visiting. Some houses are tenanted by students on long-term placements and may not have any available rooms.

The accommodation is of a high standard and is low cost with lodgings predominantly situated close to the main hospital and associated health services of each town.

Accommodation typically comprises individual bedrooms with shared kitchen, living room, laundry and bathroom facilities. Where available, students also have access to a communal study area or Student Learning Centre.

Where there is no accommodation listed or available in the location of your placement, email rhsa.property@flinders.edu.au (SA and Hamilton, Victoria) or fnt.placements@flinders.edu.au (NT) to enquire about what other options may be available.

To book accommodation, first login or create an account, then add a placement before proceeding to add accommodation for that placement.
