My family and I travelled from SA to NSW; this is the halfway mark between these states. We stayed at Bishop's lodge for the night. If you are travelling through, pack an esky with cold drinks and munchies as the closest station/shops from the lodge are pretty pricey. It is a beautiful and quaint little hotel that is clean and...

We arrived by chance to find the fete at the lodge. Lot's of local fun, stalls, food, kid's performing. Lovely and historic house and gardens. If you're here you must take a look.

A eye opener to a bygone time, a house that when built was ahead of its time and the lessons forgotten.

The first thing that hit us about Bishop's Lodge was that t was made of corrugated iron. We watched a video inside explaining the architecture of this late 1800's property and were amazed at the technology - how they insulated the house and how they structured it to cater for large movements in the ground caused by the cycle of...

Historically important home, of significant and climate-adapted architecture. Worth seeing. That being said, after a few rooms the significance waned and I was happy to move on after an hour or so. Just an empty house and a few things to read, so don't take the kids they'll be whinging in no time. Friendly guide on hand if one wanted... More

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.
