The Old Schoolhouse was originally built for the owners' children to attend correspondence school, but has since been transformed into self-catered accommodation with small kitchenette. There is no oven or microwave in the kitchen however a microwave can be arranged if required. There is a bbq on the lower level with a lovely outdoor dining area.
“Pure delight! The fact that the houses were designed and built by the host and her family itself was astonishing! The outback setup in the secluded place provides a great experience for those who are looking to take a break from the city life and wish to relax under thousands of stars,literally. The town is known for one of the clearest nightsky view and we ourselves spotted 5 shooting stars in a day from the accommodation”
Skywatch Observatory Domestays is a private suite of rooms in our large mud brick residence. It is ideal for couples, families or small groups to experience the majestic night skies and amazing walking trails of the Warrumbungle national park and Pilliga forest. Guests are provided with a free guided tour of the night sky from our observatory and viewing platform. A full cooked breakfast, available after 7:30 am, is also included. Astrophotography equipment and guidance from Gary is for hire
“Dropped in to stay the night and see the stars on our drive home while on a road trip. The accommodation was comfortable and our hosts were great. We had dinner in town and once night had fallen we had the opportunity to do some stargazing with Gary. Although it was cloudy, Gary did his best to show off what the night sky had on offer. It was a great experience. A lovely breakfast was put on for us in the morning, which was a nice touch and a good opportunity for a bit of a chat. All in all, a nice spot to stop instead of dropping in to a motel. Thanks to our hosts for a lovely stay!”

“Had a great few days here enjoying the countryside and a very comfy & cosy farmhouse that was spacious and convenient to the local town (but not too close!). Hosts were friendly and easy to talk to. Would recommend to anyone who enjoys the bush way of life.”
