If looking for comfy accommodation at a reasonable price RIGHT IN THE HEART of one of the oldest surviving little gold mining townships, then you can't go past Sofala Gaol. Also if you are looking for sincere old fashioned country hospitality, Dianne certainly provides that and more. I loved my short stay here and the help I received from Dianne... More

Old Sofala Gaol is one of those places that is really off the beaten track. It a true little gem! The B&B rooms are comfortable ( and cheap), but you really have to try the food from the restaurant. It may take a while to be served, but it is worth the wait. Sofala is a town that time has... More
