Couples can go off grid in luxury in rural New South Wales


It will probably still be a few months before this Tasmanian resident is willing to risk travel to New South Wales, but when I do I will have Wilga Station on my "to do" list. 

Wilga Station, outside Bathurst, has just opened luxury accommodation for couples on its 260-acre working sheep farm. 

Perched on the highest vantage point is The Farmers Hut - 100% off-grid, with a unique grass roof, and a cleverly designed three-sided window set daybed with stunning views for sunrise, sunset and star-filled skies. 

There is a wood fireplace, king- size bed, kitchenette, designer bathroom and a sheltered barbecue area. 

The property is 12 minutes' drive from Bathurst and 40 minutes from Orange and has its own walking tracks and a willow-lined creek. Guests are invited to tuck into toasted marshmallows and local wine at night.

On the drawing boards is The Shearers Hall (opening autumn 2021). Formerly a working shearing shed, it's being transformed into a luxurious, five-bedroom country retreat for up to 10 guests.

Tariffs for the couples' retreat include a complimentary antipasto platter, premium bottle of wine from a local vineyard and gourmet breakfast hamper. 

Wilga Station has been home to the Keith family for three generations. For details see www.wilgastation.com.au.
