Directions to Blue Gum Cabin

FROM BATHURST

At Kelso turn right (from Sydney) or left (from Bathurst) into Gilmour St from the Great Western Highway.

Continue along this street and straight through the roundabout at Trinity Heights shops. The road now becomes Sofala Rd.

As you drive through the village of Wattle Flat on the left you will pass a stone Church, the local public school and an old General Store complete with an old petrol bowser out front. The first street on the left is Thompson St which has a sign pointing to Ryder Homestead 1.3km along it.

After a few hundred metres the road becomes dirt. After 1km look left until you see a gate signposted Blue Gum Cabin. Drive a few hundred metres up the drive to the cabin. The gate doesn’t need to be kept shut for the duration of your visit.

Testimonials

Have stayed here before – loved it then and love it even more now. We have traveled a lot around this beautiful country and this place is very much on top of the list of best places to stay. The beauty, the silence, the wildlife, the walking tracks, the cabin is fantastic. Everything you need is there and my husband panned up some great pieces of gold. Will be back.
