Well sometimes you've just got to get out of Dodge for a bit, you know what Mamma means - jump in the car and zoom off for a half a day or more. But where to go?! We have been rounding up some of our fave spots for a road trip with the family and it's high time we shared them with you all in the one handy spot! Keeping it this side of the bridge makes all these places easily accessible to us too! Happy adventures Westie folk.
The Cosmopolitan Hotel sits proudly on the corner on the main strip and you will be drawn to it’s original pub facade and the scent of wood fire. Inside is exactly what you want - cozy and rustic, with a warm fire place to create the perfect atmosphere.
Well this place certainly has everything Mamma loves. It's such a cosy place in the winter with its fireplace and stone walls, and then on nice days there is the great outdoor deck and HUGE expanse of grass AND the old boat & sandpit for the kiddies to play too.
This cozy old pub in the Wombat Forest in Blackwood is rich in history - opening in 1868 at the height of the Gold Rush. This great old pub has a lovely ambience - with the fire place and couch area in winter and the deck out the back under the old oak tree in the warmer months.
