A peaceful and private rural retreat on a working farm with a choice of two fully self-contained train carriages, located just off Burley Griffin Way, 22 kms west of Temora and 14 kms east of the historic village of Ariah Park. A perfect stopover on your long distance journey away from passing traffic or stay a while and explore the Riverina. The City Circle train carriage can accommodate a single or a couple and is an open plan carriage with a king size bed. Furniture in this carriage includes a billiard table. The Overlander carriage is furnished with family antiques and can accommodate up to five guests with three sleeping compartments - a queen bed, a double bed and a single bed. Both carriages are self-contained, fully furnished and have reverse cycle air conditioning. All linen, towels, toiletries, cooking facilities, crockery, cutlery are provided. The tariff includes a generous continental breakfast hamper for each morning of stay. A home away from home - books, magazines, board games, DVDs, CDs are also provided. Each carriage has a weber gas BBQ and outdoor furniture if you wish to bring provisions for your evening meal or take a 15 minute drive to Ariah Park to dine at the iconic Ariah Park Hotel or the Ariah Park White Rose Cafe. We are ideally located as a base to explore the wider Riverina being within 1 - 1.5 hours of Wagga Wagga and Griffith and a number of regional towns along the way and offer reduced rates for stays of two nights and over. The carriages are set in park-like gardens overlooking a water garden and have rural views from all windows. We have preserved our heritage on this fifth-generation family farm and guests are welcome to have a guided tour of our pioneers cottage with family memorabilia dating back to the late 1800s, our collection of horse drawn farming equipment and to meet our Clydesdales. Guests are able to wander through our rambling country garden with over 200 roses, perennials and succulents or go bushwalking and birdwatching. Temora is home to the Temora Aviation Museum, the Bundawarrah Centre incorporating the Temora Rural Museum and Lake Centenary, where the jetboats fly while Ariah Park is a well maintained 1920s heritage village with its own Echoes of Ariah Park Museum, collection of wool-brands, old farming machinery and a trail through the interpretive signs marking sites of the original Broken Dam Settlement.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We thoroughly enjoyed our overnight stay on the City Circle train carriage at Country Carriages. Rita & Lyndsay were just lovely - and were the perfect hosts. The bed was superb (probably the most comfortable we’ve ever slept on), as were the top-quality sheets. The carriage supplied everything that one could possibly want - it even a pool table! Bonnie & Bessie, the beautiful Clydesdales, were definitely the highlight of our two-week trip - we’ll never forget the time we spent with them. Ariah Park is a long way from the Gold Coast, but we’ll definitely try to get back there so as to stay at Country Carriages once more - next time, for more than just one night. Owen & Larraine

We arrived late afternoon to a warm welcome and a lovely toasty train carriage. It was very well provisioned and the location just perfect. The bed was super comfortable and we were provided lovely fluffy towels and robes. The outdoor fire was set and no shortage of firewood. It was a little chilly while we were there so we did not take advantage of the outdoor bath but will certainly try it next time. The carriqge itself lacked nothing in comfort and style. The little touches such as the fruit bowl were greatly apprecjated. Rita showed us around the old house, and Rawans collection of all things old, while sharing with us the family history. We feel very privileged being able to share this beautiful property, even if just for 3 short days. If you get the opportunity to visit this part of the world, I can not recommend this place highly enough. You won't be disappointed.

What an amazing weekend. Really different and cool. So quiet and dark. The perfect place to relax. Hosts, Rita and Lyndsay were great even served soup!! So friendly. The carriages are brilliant. May be getting close to needing updates. No WiFi or even phone connection. Loved this even though hard to be off grid! Great place to stay!

We spent two nights hosted on this beautiful property near Temora in NSW. We shared the Overlander carriage with friends and had a wonderful time. It’s quite unlikr any other B&B (in a good way!) and we would definitely recommend it to anyone who wants to enjoy warm country hospitality in a unique surrounding. Our hosts Riat and Lyndsay left nothing out and thir attention to detail was admorable. So if you’re looking for something different and memorable, get in touch!

We, city slickers, went to Ariah Park for Fanny Lumsden's Country Halls Tour and had two comfortable nights in the Overlander. We found it amply large enough for each of us to have his own space, yet with a communal dining table and a large sitting/TV viewing room and outside. Fully airconditioned from both ends and geriatric friendly. It was orientated so you could see the sunrise from one side and the sunset from the other. The stars shone brightly at night with the Southern Cross identifiable at a glance. "Dining" facilities in the area were basic and the pub, with the exception of the two ladies from Elders, unwelcoming. It being a "pizza & pasta night", we would have been better off with bringing our own pre-cooked meals from home and re-heating them in the micro wave or used the gas BBQ provided. The continental breakfast, with optional eggs provided, was quality and generous. Our hosts, Rita & Lyndsay were outgoing and interesting. Only regret is not checking out their garden of over 200 named roses (best seen in November), stone walls and ancient trees. John Exner & Gary Lambert

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay with us John and Gary. It was a pleasure to meet you both and we appreciate your escapes from the city to regional New South Wales supporting regional businesses and events. The Fanny Lumsden Country Halls tour gives local communities the opportunity to fundraise by providing a BBQ meal on the evening of Fanny's show, in this case the neighbouring Mirrool community undertook the catering although the show was held in the Ariah Park Hall. It was unfortunate you were unable to dine in the dining room at Ariah Park Hotel as it is a beautifully restored pub with a lovely recently refurbished dining room. We hope you will return to the area one day and experience the friendly welcome extended to visitors by locals.

We were delighted to find the best and most unique B&B that suited us perfectly! An old City Circle train carriage transformed into a self contained accommodation unit with fabulous hosts Rita and Lyndsay. We appreciated the information with the history of the farm and the carriages and the tour of the pioneer cottage by Lyndsay. We were attending a Rotary conference in Temora and the carriage was perfect for us for the 2nights. We just wish we’d had more time to simply relax in the peaceful surrounds. Everything was done to a high level with a very comfortable bed with lovely linen, a great bathroom setup with lots of complimentary goodies and lovely big towels, the kitchen had all we needed plus the delicious and generous breakfast hamper got our day off to a great start. How cool is this place - and yes that’s a billiard table in the middle of the train! It’s quirky, cosy, comfy and has heaps of character!

A wonderful rural retreat run by a great family who truly care for their guests. Lindsay and Rita offer a unique style of accommodation in their beautiful historical railway carriages. We chose the city circle with its king bed and luxurious linen. Air conditioner, kitchen and private bathroom. A lovely rose garden and our hosts proud to show us around their settlers cottage with all of its historical collections. A wonderful breakfast hamper was supplied together with a spectacular sunrise. Again a special thank you for the warm welcome and the friendly service provided. Kind regards Les & Jenny

This beautiful oasis, miles from all the hustle and bustle is just perfect for a relaxing get away. The beautifully appointed carriages offer everything you'll possibly need to be independent, or you're only 14kms from the quaint historic town of Ariah Park. Host Rita is a gem and is extremely helpful. Loved this place so much!

Fantastic and quiet location for a country retreat. Carriage had everything you needed (and more) for a comfortable stay and was a great step back in time for those who remember the carriages on NSW rails. Breakfast was great and provided a hearty way to start the day. Booking was easy and hosts incredibly welcoming, friendly and absolutely brilliant to deal with, particularly with numerous date changes due to COVID and working around very wet weather during our stay. Would definitely stay again next time we are in the area.

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay with us. A mare and foal and our stallion run in the paddock which is to the front of both carriages but may have been grazing in the other end of the paddock during your stay. At the moment there is a sizable mob of ewes which are due to lamb next month in the paddock you drive through to get to either carriage. Our stock are moved from paddock to paddock depending on pasture and cropping but we are always happy to take interested guests for a tour of the property on request.
