Nangar National Park is only a short distance away.
We are a working farm, and on the edge of a real forest, so children must be kept in sight at all times to ensure their safety. Although The Rockies is 2km from farm sheds so it is very quiet.
The creek is on the farm, but is 2km from The Rockies house. In wetter periods there are streams closer to the house. Kids or adults can play at building dams, paddle, etc, in any of these, season and safety permitting.
Our weather is between that of Parkes and Orange. It is colder in winter than Sydney - but not as cold as Orange. The house has heating and air conditioning. We are happy to share our pool if you are here in hot weather.
We are in the country, there will always be wildlife, from kangaroos, emus and eagles to snakes, lizards and insects.
We occasionally have floods which prevent access to the farm. If this occurs and your booking has to be cancelled, we will refund the full cost of the booking, except the Stayz fee, or you can change your booking to another date.
