Directions to Ryder Homestead

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. 1.3kms from the turn off the road will veer up to the right (marked with a sign on the wattle tree). Drive up this driveway keeping right at any little junctions, through the gates in front of the large open shed and the Ryder Homestead sign is on the fence by your entrance gate.
