Capertee Homestead (named 'Port Macquarie') is an inspiring historic building originally built in the 1920s overlooking the river in Capertee National Park, north of Lithgow.
There's plenty of space in Capertee Homestead, with charming country style accommodation for large groups or families who want to experience a unique weekend getaway.
Early mornings and dusk are a great time to spot wallabies, wombats and kangaroos. Explore the surrounding bush on a range of walks and enjoy a picnic by the river. When it’s time to cool off, enjoy a refreshing paddle in the shallow waters.
If you want to relax, simply find a shady spot on the wrap-around verandah and enjoy some birdwatching. Gather your family and friends around in the evening and take advantage of your surroundings with a barbecue before heading inside and settling in around the slow combustion fire.
