Franks Breakaway Farmstay country accommodation in the Mudgee-Rylstone area

The Mudgee-Rylstone area offers a world of outdoor adventures. Enjoy exploring, walk or drive along the bush and rock-lined Cudgegong River. Try to spot platypus in one of the lovely waterholes or throw in a fishing line and then onto the dam to enjoy the wonderful views. Walk right up to the camping area of Dunns' Swamp, as seen on Getaway and Our Country, past the unique Padoga Rock formations to Platypus Point and on around to the camping area and boat ramp. Climb up through Split Rock; 27mtrs tall, 91mtrs long, and walk through to the other side. Bird watchers have found ninety different species around this area. The abundant native flora is beautiful all year long but to see bursts of golden wattle in August or the wildflowers in late spring is a wonderful bonus. Photography and painting opportunities abound for the enthusiast.

History buffs will enjoy early photos and a story, told by the daughter of the man in charge of building the dam in the 1930's, giving insight into their everyday life and working conditions. More history is revealed in the story of Jesse Hickman, the Lady Bushranger who roamed this area.                                         MORE PHOTOS >>
