Locals, Interstate & Interbnational Visitors
Locals wanting that special night away from home and yet no need to travel far. Perhaps it is an anniversary where we can arrange your children's care in your own home and you duck out of town for the weekend of leisure and relaxation in a romantic setting. Enjoy candle lite table for two over looking the lights of Dubbo, breakfast in bed or a quite night on the lounge and we can order in.
Travellers wanting to experience a few nights in a rustic home and enjoy the best views in Dubbo while experiencing small acreage life. The nights are something to see. You won't believe how many stars there are in the southern sky or how enjoyable it is to just sit with a glass and watch the sun go down either in the cool leafy surrounds or in front of a warm open fire.
We have a menagerie of domestic animals; cows, sheep, goats, cooks, dogs and cats or oodles of Australian native wildlife; birds, echidna, kangaroos, wallabies, owls, hawks and many, many other animals.
The grounds are child friendly with feeding animals or just playing on the lawns. Children can pick their own vegetables for dinner while mum & dad enjoy the spa.
Well behaved animals are welcome with prior arranging and outside accommodation is provided.
Overseas visitors will experience something truly Australian at the grass roots level. Have a meal cooked in the wood fuelled stove just like the pioneers or walk the grounds to see 360 degree views of the Australian rural landscape. Have some quite time reading a book under the famous Australian gum trees or use Bulwarra as a base to venture to some of the Worlds best.
Step back a million years when you explore the Wellington Caves and Phosphate Mine. The Cathedral Cave boasts the Southern Hemisphere's and arguably the world's largest stalagmite, a limestone structure measuring 15 metres high and 32 metres around its bases. Find yourself surrounded by magnificent wildlife on wide open plains at the Taronga Western Plains Zoo, or experience life in the early 1900?s for criminals at the Old Dubbo Gaol.
