First stop Wongarbon…
We have just returned from our trip in our ‘Lucky Country’ square-drop camper to Birdsville to the Big Red Bash. Wow what a trip it was! I can honestly say that this was up there with one of the best holiday’s we have ever had. Australia really is the lucky country when it comes to incredible landscapes filled with so many different colours. The desert totally blew us away with it’s unforgiving dirt tracks, the red dust which is everywhere, the animals just wandering around the road and the incredible sunrises and sunsets.
Our first stop to camp was in Wongarbon at a great place called Billy’o Bush Retreat in NSW. It’s close in proximity to Dubbo which means you can visit the zoo and the old jaol while you’re in town.
The owner Mark and his son Noah were were fantastic and nothing was too much trouble. The property is very picturesque with really nice views for miles. Sunsets and sunrises are pretty spectacular too which is nice once happy hour starts. There is a bar and lots of interesting old vintage items out on display all around the property. A lot of thought and creativity has gone into the design and feel of this place.
This is the perfect place for a wedding or a work event too. If you are ever in the area of Dubbo but want to stay a bit out of town, then this is your place.
