Farm Stays, Bed & Breakfast, and motels… the options are plenty when visiting the region we call South of the Darling.

Covering as the Riverina and Central NSW, there are plenty of wonderful places to rest up while touring the area visiting the many towns and parks along the way.

Barkala Farm

Barkala Farm and Pilliga Pottery is owned and operated by the Rickert family, who emigrated from Germany 25 years ago looking for a pioneer lifestyle, creative challenges, and fresh air – and they found it! With hard work, vision and love they have overcome drought, bushfires, and family heartache to slowly build up an oasis of cultural beauty in what many consider to be the middle of nowhere.

Beancounters House

Beancounters House offers affordable luxury in Nyngan - your gateway to the outback. A family business, Beancounters House reuses the historic Bank of NSW building in the heart of Nyngan. It combines heritage charm with contemporary design and modern facilities. For stopovers or long term stays, Beancounters is a slice of contemporary comfort in the outback.

Corynnia Station

A perfect halfway stop between Sydney and Adelaide or an experience not to miss on your outback adventure. Corynnia Station offers guests two stylishly decorated, 1940's cottages set within glorious homestead gardens that have been featured in many publications or a new, authentically Australian, lodge style facility catering for up to twelve guests.

Lake Paika Accommodation

Take a step back in time, unwind, relax and enjoy unique accommodation in the restored self-contained workmans' quarters. Experience this natural wetland, reinstated in 2012, after more than 100 years of being stranded from its lifeline, the Murrumbidgee River. Lake Paika Station is one of the oldest properties in the area.

Walls Court

Relish the tranquillity and comfort of your Walls Court suite as you laze on the veranda observing the birds in the garden. Children have fun feeding chooks, gathering eggs and patting dogs. Gain more from your visit to the zoo; we are volunteer guides. Revel in crowd free shopping precincts or savour the wine tastings at nearby Red Earth Winery.
