We’re heading on a road trip through western NSW and are after advice on decent accommodation and restaurants/ cafes.
Accommodation- ideally we’d like somewhere with a bit of character. Doesn’t have to be spotless; a rambling, bit-of-peeling-paint old pub/house would be great. And it doesn’t have to be hostel cheap- we have the budget for private rooms (though not 5* hotels).
Food- While I realise outback NSW isn’t the world leader in cuisine, we like to eat places where the cooking options extend beyond the fryer, and the flavouring options beyond MSG.
Places we’re staying:
* Orange, Windera or Molong
* Menindee (we’ll probably be camping and will have cooking equipment, but I’ve heard there is a pub there. Is this true? What’s it like?
* Mungo National Park (anyone stayed at the Shearers Quarters? Is it better to camp? I assume you have to take your own food in- correct?)
Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks
