Wentworth, New South Wales
Heritage Homestead destination or stop-over offering Australian outback experiences including accommodation on historic Darling River. Built in 1870's of stone & pine logsthe large rooms and high ceilings are characteristic of the period. Wood fires burn brightly during winter & in summer the wide verandas provide shade & views across the lawns sloping down to the river.
Extensive gardens of jacaranda and peppercorn trees surround the homestead beyond which stand original out-buildings, fruit and vegetable garden & modern mod-grass tennis court. Our position on the irrigation weir - created by the lock on the Murray immediately below Wentworth and the Murray-Darling River Junction - ensures a constant water supply for 'Avoca' residents and gardens. The property covers 104 acres, incuding more than 1km of rive...

Stayed here after randomly looking on google maps for accommodation located outside Wentworth as we wanted a relaced countryside stay for the weekend while we checked out Lake Mungo and other attractions.

We stayed in the self-contained half-log cabin "cooks cottage" out the back of the main buildings, as its dog friendly. It was in original condition, with pressed tin decoration, basic facilities and no fancy renovations but comfortable and relaxing after a day out and bedding provided as well as a full vintage 'kitchen' to use. We loved sitting outside the cottage eating and drinking, smelling the flowers, and listening to the abundance of birds and a gecko. We went down to the Darling river to paddle our feet, joined our hosts for a friendly BBQ out the front of the main homestead building, and wandered amongst the fruit trees, old homestead buildings such as the 'bakehouse', looked at a horse, patted the hosts dog Poppy, and relaxed some more.

About the neighbourhood
'Avoca' was one of the original stations and covered 1,100 square miles. The homestead is situated on the banks of the Darling River 50 kilometres upstream from the confluence of the Darling and Murray rivers and the historic township of Wentworth. The region receives a lot of sunshine but little rain (av 275 mm p.a.) but Australia's two longest rivers provided essential water for livestock, enabled the pioneering explorers, drovers and pastoralists to produce beef cattle, sheep and wool for local markets and shipment to England. For many years paddlsteamers were the main means of supplying the pastoralists and their employees with goods from Port Elliot near Adelaide to Bourke, Echuca, Swan Hill and Wagga Wagga, calling at homesteads along the way and returning with barges of... more
