Suggest you find another motel - needs complete refurbishment -mutton dressed up as lamb -trucks backing into driveway next to motel doors at early morning to cross road to service station- unbelievably bad experience

plenty of ways to slow down and take in the valley lifestyle. Stop in any village or town and spend a little or a lot. The Bucketts Way is a restful trip on any day.

Only viewed them from a distance because the weather was too hot to do the walk up into them. Really unusual rock formations and love the way they overlook the township of Gloucester.

The mountains are the backdrop to Gloucester. They attract many tourits and facilities range from bush camping to motel or B@B.

We climbed to the top of the Bucketts Mountains and were rewarded with wonderful views. The walk is strenuous on one side (the one we took) and we found out later that there is an easier walk on the other side of the mountain.

The drive through the Faulkland Rd farmlands and Barrington East & West Roads was beautiful. Breathtaking rural scenery.

The Lions Bucketts Walk is quite a steep climb but well worth it for the views once you reach the top!

The circular trip around the Bucketts Mountains from Gloucester was one of the highlights of our recent visit. You can get a route map and driving instructions from the Tourist Information Office in Gloucester. The trip takes approximately 1 hour and involves several shallow fords....More
