Welcome to Bulwark B&B
Settle down after arriving or touring the area to a quiet drink on the 20 metre veranda or under the trees and enjoy our magnificent 360º views of rural Australia. We have a menagerie of domestic animals; cows, sheep, goats, cooks, dogs and cats or oodles of Australian native wildlife; birds, echidna, kangaroos, wallabies, owls, hawks and many, many other animals. The grounds are child friendly with feeding animals or just playing on the lawns. Children can pick their own vegetables for dinner while mum & dad enjoy the cool drink. RV's are most welcome as our parking area is large. Well behaved animals are welcome and outside accommodation is provided. Take a look at our accommodation packages here.
There are stairs off the veranda (table & chairs) to come to the garden, games room, alfresco area (wood pizza oven, BBQ, oven & open fire), main house (where I live) with communal fully equipped kitchen (gas plates) and formal lounge/dining room. The paddocks are rocky and uneven with many native grasses growing with sheep and cattle grazing.
For you too self-cater, on the veranda off the studios, you have a 6 gas burner BBC and hutch with everything you might need (plates, cups, glasses, cutlery, bowls, platters, cooking utensils, wash basin, tea towels, drainer etc). At the bottom of the veranda stairs there is a hooded gas BBQ as well. There is also a heat bead Webber. Or many places to eat in Dubbo.
Should you need other equipment or want a small oven or gas stove top, there is the communal (shared) main house kitchen which is well stocked with everything I could imagine you could need to cook up a storm. In the alfresco area, there is a wood BBQ, stove, pizza oven, and open fire. The alfresco area is off the main house kitchen. There is also a lounge/dining room for guests use in the main house.
Please use the FREE WiFi responsibly so I can continue to share with guests. Code available on request.
Guests use their Studio, and have access to all other areas which are communal including the veranda, lawns, play area, games room, rustic alfresco area, kitchen, lounge/dining room and wander around the farm.
My dogs and I have our private spaces in the main house off the kitchen and upstairs.
Interaction with guests
Usually on arrival, I give a little talk explaining the rules, introducing our animals, showing guests their studio and communal areas, settling children and animals into our property. Many guests it is their first time on a rural property and often don't know what to expect. Rural life is very different to city life.
I am available from 8 am till 8 pm for guests and enjoy showing off our wonder place.
During your stay we feed the animals and I usually give a talk about the animal including "Striker" our huge bull, weigh approx 1 ton.
Any, well behaved animal is welcome. Her/his behaviour will define whether she/he sleeps inside or out and can get along with other animals. You would need to provide all bedding, meals and needs for your dog. Also if the dog is likely to be on the beds or furniture PLEASE provide covering for those beds and furniture as others maybe allergic to your animal.
We do have farm and other animals in the house yard which contains the studios and house. Animals chasing our animals will NOT be tolerated. They need to be restrained. It is really up to your dog as to whether she/he needs to be restrained There is a fenced off yard that is available for you to contain your dog if need be.
We are happy to allow your dog to stay here while you are at the zoo if he/she is comfortable doing so.
There are wonderful natural surrounds, including a lovely view of the Dubbo countryside and town in the distance, games room and animals (including dogs, chooks, ducks, sheep & cattle and native animals for you to feed) for you to enjoy and relax in.
We have the conveniences of home in our studios on top of Raymond Hill Dubbo.
Driving is your best option in Dubbo and Bulwarra B&B as things rural are more spread out.
Bring strong walking shoes if you intend to walk around the paddocks as there are many rocks, weeds and the sheep may tread on your toes.
Getting to Bulwarra B&B our GPS Bearings Google coordinates are:
If coming south and through Dubbo, from the zoo entrance travel about 9 km along Obley Road toward Yeoval. Benolong Road is on the left. Travel 2.2km along Benolong Road and turn right into Bulwarra Drive. Travel 1.3km and entrance is on the left going up the hill (Right hand driveway).
If travelling north & coming from Molong, take the Cumnock/Yeoval turn off just coming out of Molong. Turn left onto the Banjo Paterson Way/Obley Road and travel about 45 minutes, and after going through Toongi (it is tiny so don't miss it) you will see Benolong Road on the right of a large bend.
Please give me a ring (0448 245 241) when you are about 1 hour out of Dubbo.
