is situated in the quaint village of Rockley. The building was formerly the Rockley Bank, a changeover stop for the gold coach that carried gold from Burraga to Bathurst.
The guesthouse was given a National Trust award for the exceptional restoration work, and the grand rooms, and charming gardens now make for the perfect backdrop to a romantic weekend away. All guests also enjoy a delicious gourmet breakfast to fuel your day of adventure ahead.
The Royal Hotel Sofala
recently underwent a major upgrade as part of Airbnb’s The Country Pub Project. Escape upstairs to your comfy queen bed in a newly renovated, beautifully styled room, or while away a lazy afternoon from the top balcony overlooking the main street.
Downstairs, live like a local, turn up the old jukebox and dance up a much needed storm in the back bar. Or chalk up your pool cue for a spot of billiards over a few cold ones. It's worth a stroll down to the banks of the Turon as well, listening for the soft whispers of the Casuarina leaves in the breeze.
Alfred on Keppel
is ideally located on the lower end of Keppel Street, among a revitalised industrial space known as Tremain's Mill close to boutique shops, great restaurants, leafy cafes and the Bathurst Regional Art Gallery.
The gracious terrace is impeccably styled with the main bedroom opening through classic French doors onto the back courtyard where you can enjoy a good book and a cup of tea before hitting the streets of the Bathurst CBD for some serious retail therapy.
