Time to Relax
The tent is located on a small farm and adjacent to the Ben Bullen State Forest, with assured privacy and rural farm views. Late in the afternoon you can sit on the deck and watch the kangaroos and wallabies peacefully grazing, hence the name “Wallabies Rest” and in the morning wake to native bird calls. There is plenty of bush walking or horse riding trails in the State Forest adjacent. Please do not feed the wildlife bread as it causes them harm.
An easy 30 minutes drive north of Lithgow and within one hour of the vineyards of Mudgee, this location is ideal for day trips and experiences within the region, including the stunning Capertee Valley and Newnes in the Wolgan Valley, Bathurst, Lake Wallace, Rylstone and the old gold mining town of Sofala.
