Our house is set on 25 acres on a secluded bend of Commissioners Waters. Extensive and private gardens surround the house leading down to the water. Birdlife in the garden is bountiful and provides constant enjoyment. We have three queen sized bedrooms available with a shared bathroom at one end of the house. Kitchen and lounge rooms are shared with the owners who live at the other end of the house. Cost per bedroom is Aus$78 so if you book for 2 guests and two bedrooms are required, the cost will be 2x$78 = Aus$156. If there is a second guest but you only require one room, the cost is $78 + $55 = Aus$133. Tripadvisor do not have the options to list these prices as they are stated above.

Continental breakfast can be provided for an extra cost of $10 per head. Hot cooked breakfast of bacon, eggs, tomato and toast costs $15. Dinner can also be catered for with prior notification at a cost of $25 per adult and $10 per child under 10 years for a two course meal. Arrival time can be reasonably flexible if your booking is made well in advance. Time of departure is 10am unless otherwise prearranged. Payment: Payment is to be made by cash to cover meals or extra payment for bedroom use. Visitors comment on the quiet and relaxing atmosphere of the property. We cannot see any of our neighbours although they are about 1km away. The cultural city of Armidale, home to the University of New England and three private schools - PLC, NEGS and TAS - is just 10 mins away. We are 5 mins drive from the Blue Hole and Gara Gorge, both popular natural tourist attractions for visitors to Armidale. Mobile phone reception is limited although achievable if you stand in the right spot!! We have five charismatic geese - Eeny, Meeny, Miny, Mo and Zac. When you arrive, please drive down towards the garage ignoring the parking signs we have for our Cafe on Sundays. There are often kangaroos on the drive into our property too so it is best to obey the 10kph speed sign! Our property - Wilanja - was featured in the 2013 Autumn edition (Vol 10) of the beautiful and popular magazine Country Living - New England to the North West of NSW from page 75 to 79. Our thanks to them for the wonderful article and fantastic photographs.More

About the neighbourhood
Our property is 12kms from Armidale and not far from the popular tourist attraction of the Blue Hole at the Gara Gorge. This area is frequented by families and bush walkers keen to explore the natural beauty of the gorge area or just to enjoy a lovely picnic in a national park. A one hour circuit walk allows visitors to see the impressive gorge and to walk through native forests. The climate is cool temperate but visitors can expect changes in weather in any season - that's all part of the beauty of the area.
How to get there
Travel east from Armidale on the Grafton Rd. Just after the 80 speed sign, turn right onto the Castledoyle Rd/Gara Gorge. Travel 11kms and turn left into Milne Rd which is 1.2kms after Andersons Rd. Blue Wren (113 Milne Rd) is on the left hand side at the bottom of the hill. We have a black mailbox with a black silhouette of a Blue Wren sitting on top of it. Welcome!
