Today was our 2nd visit to Bishops Lodge. We passed through Hay several months ago, and saw it then, and came back to Hay for 2 days this time, as there is much to see and do, while still being able to soak up the relaxed rural ambience... Todays visit to Bishops Lodge was so interesting, and only $5.00 admission.... More

This was well worth a visit. The building and the video about the architecture is very interesting. We loved the rose garden and surrounds. Should be supported and maintained.

We visited Bishop's Lodge Historic House and Heritage Rose Garden in February. We were welcomed into the home by a staff member and we paid a small fee of five dollars entry. A brief history is of the property was given and then we were invited to watch a short film which was quite informative. Then we were free to... More

When in Hay there may not be much to see but this historic bishops house is worth a visit. What a shame more funding isn't provided to put this in top condition. If it was in the UK it would be a real tourist site. Very interesting.

It is a tranquil oasis. Not opened Sundays but afternoon tea is served Monday to Saturday. A must for rose lovers. There is a small gift shop. Entry is $Aus5.00 and well worth the small fee. Bishop's Lodge is situated east of the round-about into Hay on the corner of Roset Street and the Sturt Highway, if travelling on to... More

Homestead and grounds were great. A shame it wasn't furnished, but it is maintained entirely by volunteers and only costs $5 to enter.

A 100 year old building using modern ideas about heating, cooling, and orientation to the climate. Restore in teh last 20yeasr form a wreck, and very well worth the visit. Just down the road from the Bihops Lodge Motel.

This 1889 large house was home to the Anglican (Church of England) Bishop of the Riverina from 1889 until 1943. While the gardens contain some historic rose varieties, these held little interest for me as I prefer Australian native plants. However the home itself was amazing, featuring the widespread use of iron. Apparently sawdust was used as insulation. It was... More
