A small town in the Limestone Coast

The township of Padthaway, meaning "good water", is situated on the Riddoch Highway approximately 70 kilometres south of Keith. It has a population of about 200 people mostly engaged in wine production. Rows of vineyards can be seen rolling down its plains along the highway 62 kilometres long and 8 kilometres wide. The first vineyards in the region were established by the Seppelt family in the 1960s. Predominant varieties include Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon.

A unique marker at its entrance symbolises the town's agricultural enterprises. Officially opened in 2001, the Padthaway Marker was constructed by a team of Gallery 54 Penola artists using locally quarried green granite. Converging lines represented by trellises dominate the landscape with sheep, crops, flood irrigation and vines supporting the different phases of the town.
