Nestled on a small rise next to majestic ironbark forest, Honeyeater Homestead is the perfect place for nature lovers to relax and unwind. Located west of the Blue Mountains just an hour’s drive from Mudgee, you’ll be treated to charming country accommodation with breathtaking views of the surrounding sandstone escarpment.

After you’ve settled in, pack a picnic lunch and explore the neighbouring forest on one of the nearby trails. A 30min walk will take you to Capertee River, where you can stroll the riverbanks or enjoy a refreshing dip if the river is running. Just half an hour’s drive away, you’ll find the historic towns of Rylstone and Kandos with their heritage buildings, pubs and cosy cafes.

Make sure you pack your binoculars because you’re more than likely to spot some of the local woodland birds during your stay. If you’re lucky you may even spy the endangered regent honeyeater, for which the homestead is named.

After a day spent sightseeing, return to the quiet solitude of the homestead and soak up the afternoon sun from the wrap-around verandah.
