The Roundhouse is located in a place of spectacular beauty, with views of Quamby Bluff and the Great Western Tiers on all sides.

Arriving for a single night on new years day, The Roundhouse proved to be the perfect recovery retreat inclusive of fresh raspberries from the garden and kookaburra visitors. The stay was topped off by one of the best pub meals ever at the Deloraine Hotel.
