Talbot LodgeYork, Western Australia

This may well be the quintessential Australian bush getaway.

Nestled in between a heap of sandalwood trees, Talbot Lodge is a no frills building of simplistic beauty that reflects the simplistic beauty of nearby town, York.

The oldest inland town in Western Australia, York sits on Ballardong Nyoongar land next to the Avon River.

There’s no shortage of timber in this part of the world, something the builder of the Lodge was clearly aware of. Rustic timber floors and a cathedral ceiling sandwich artful timber-panelled walls, and it all works so nicely.  

There are two fireplaces on the inside and a fire pit on the outside, so it’d be remarkable if you ever got cold. There’s a chef’s kitchen to create, and a gorgeous verandah to kick back and listen to the trees rustling and the cockatoos calling.  


Wheatbelt Luxury Escapes run Talbot Lodge and several other gorgeous bush getaways.
