PET FRIENDLY our Kelpie Gus just loves to have playmates

Gum Paddock Country Cottage is situated approximately 9 km from the GPO in the main shopping precinct of Broken Hill and features 1 x Double Bedroom, open Living room with an ornate Fireplace, fully equipped kitchenette and private bathroom.

The Cottage was originally The Silverton Tramway Billiard Hall and has many a story to tell. It was transported to Gum Paddock in 1996 providing a great getaway and is quaintly decorated by a "step back in time" feel but with all the modern conveniences to make your stay relaxing and comfortable.

The Cottage also has a double fold out lounge in the open plan living area so it can accommodate up to 4 people if needed.

Relax in the front cottage garden and enjoy our friendly native Sulphur Crested Cockies who like to visit us regularly or BBQ in your very own private creek.

Take a stroll through the beautiful dry creek bed and down to the Old Railway Bridge, you might be lucky enough to spot some wild Sturt Desert Peas or catch a glimpse of an emu or a kangaroo or two.

Fresh eggs are provided from our free-range chickens and Gus the Kelpie would love to show you where they live in and around the large fruit orchard - whilst you're there, your welcome to pick the oranges and lemons. You might even be in time for ripe quandongs.

Gum Paddock Country Cottage is just the perfect way to get back to nature. Come and relax with us for a while.

Complimentary, fresh eggs are provided on arrival from our free-range chickens.


Your friendly hosts are Chuck & Gail Cresswell.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy dogs happy people The cottage keepers were just lovely! They made both my partner and I as well as our beloved little dog feel right at home. The cottage itself was clean, cozy,and had everything you would need. We would certainly return!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful cottage and surrounds A well equipped cottage, great hosts and being dog friendly made it even better. Loved the fact it was out of town and the resident chickens, wallabies and cockatoos made the stay that much more enjoyable. Definitely would stay again next time in Broken Hill.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A pleasant stay A relaxing place for us and the dog, the night sky was great and the seclusion of being out of town made it more special. Only disappointment was the fire place could not be used as advertised.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stunning Location The cottage is beautifully located for watching the dawn and the sunrise, and makes a perfect destination for a 'get away from it all trip'. Everything was provided for a nicely appointed and comfortable self catering stay within easy reach of Broken Hill and Silverton. Fresh eggs and citrus fruit was a nice touch, and we and our city dog really enjoyed walking the property on a beautiful sunny winter day.
