Food and Huts by Mount Oxley

"Rossmore" Station Bourke
NSW, 2840
Phone: (02) 6872 3275
Mobile: 0427 815 385

Denise and Bill refer to their rustic accommodation as "Authentic Shearer's Hut ... with a bit of sprucing up." As was the norm in the 1950's, the building is constructed of timber and fibro, featuring 6 bedrooms opening onto the verandah, an original dining room (still furnished as it was in days gone by with a huge table and trestles), an open fireplace, old electric stove and refrigerator and kitchen with a slow combustion two door oven.

The huts feature recently constructed bathrooms but the septic toilets, as early Australian tradition dictated, are still a 30 metre stroll from the accommodation, to which one visitor commented- "if I wanted to sleep next to the toilet I'd be in a motel"

Five of the bedrooms at the huts have been renovated, the pick of them being the Sir Charles Sturt room featuring a view to Mt Oxley through the glass doors.

The huts are situated in natural surroundings and are cleaned on the day of your arrival to ensure freshness.
