The space
Whilst we do have a minimum 2 night stay there are times we can accommodate a single night stay. Please message me for availability of single night stays.

The kitchen is equipped with brand new quality cookware and utensils, wine glasses, crockery, cutlery and basics such as olive oil, salt and pepper, coffee, tea and sugar,
There are two smart TVs. One in the open plan living area and one in the Eastern bedroom.
All linen (bedding, doonas, towels and tea towels) is supplied.
There are two bedrooms, both with king size beds and cast-iron baths situated to take advantage of the spectacular views. Both bedrooms have their own en-suite and the Eastern bedroom has the extra luxury of a double shower.
There is a third bathroom that is designed to be used by any guests using the sofa bed in the living room.
The house does not have any steps.
We have a fully equipped laundry with a washing machine, dryer and a clothesline.
There is an outdoor BBQ area and this too, is situated facing the breathtaking views to the north.
The bedrooms and the living room all face north and the huge glass windows in each room means guests never miss an opportunity to gaze at the mesmerizing and picturesque views.

In the living room you can sink into the soft and luxurious leather lounge or get cosy on one of the two large snuggle chairs. Settle in at night with a wine, turn all the lights off and gaze at the twinkling lights of Bathurst to the West. Take full advantage of the lack of light pollution and look up and marvel at the Milky
Way. There are books in the bookcase that are now looking for new homes so pick one up and wander outside to one of the Adirondack chairs and settle in for a relaxing read.

If the winter snow hits and you can’t get outside there are board games to play.
We have everything you need to enjoy your stay including, as one guest commented "the freshest air in Australia”.
Please note, we have one external security camera which is focused on the adjacent shed and property driveway. This is the only security camera on the property.

Where you’ll be

The Meadows, New South Wales, Australia

Hickory Moon is one thousand one hundred and seventy five metres above sea level which means in winter we get snow. Sometimes we get falls so heavy the roads will not be trafficable and you may have to stay an extra night/s. If this does happen, we will not charge you for the extra night/s. It is not common to be ‘snowed in’ for more than a day or so.
The Oberon area boasts many attractions including Jenolan Caves, Kanangra Walls, and Mayfield garden …even if you are not into gardening Mayfield is not to be missed. There are plenty of lovely tourist drives to do and villages with excellent pubs for lunch or dinner. Further afield you have Leura and Katoomba an hour to the East, Lithgow and Bathurst just 45 minutes away. Taralga to the South and Orange and Millthorpe to the West, are great to visit for a day trip.
There are a variety of dining options from the café at Mayfield, the two local pubs, the RSL club, an excellent Chinese restaurant and various other local eateries in Oberon. The two supermarkets in Oberon are well equipped if you want supplies to cook your own feast at Hickory Moon.

My husband and I love to travel. We prefer to stay in homes and apartments rather than hotels as we believe we get a better feel for the area we are visiting. After travelling so much and appreciating the pleasure of staying in a house with all amenities we decided to build our own holiday rental overlooking the beautiful Tarana Valley. We love the area where we live and believe it is one of the best kept secrets in NSW. I am an avid reader, and I love looking after my large country garden. We have travelled to over 30 countries and delight in new experiences and meeting people from all over the world.
