“Terrific Tarana”

Stayed in a Cabin at Tarana Hotel, pretty basic however, everything you need being clean, tidy, tv, shower, kitchen, aircon., comfortable. The hotel has excellent menu and daily Specials. The Beer Garden is a great place to enjoy your meal &/or pass away time relaxing absorbing the tranquil country vistas. Staff are fun folk, the owner is a great character. Across the road is the Cafe which has equally excellent foods, so feel free to try them both. Tarana is situated half way between Lithgow, Bathurst and Oberon. Great for Plein Air Painters, fisher folk, sightseers. Tell them Robyn (an Amego) sent you.
