What an incredible place to visit. Mark is an extremely welcoming host offering guests the opportunity to experience all the beauty that his property offers. I would really recommend mature aged guests/couples make this a priority stop in Dubbo with so many artefacts gathered from the local region.

This was a perfect spot for us, We wanted to get out and away from the crowd and this gave us exactly that. In regards to the property, it really was incredible, the photos don't do justice. We sat down outside camp watching the sun go down. Wonderfull host, wishing it was closer to visit more often

Wow what a property. Big views over the countryside, lots of space, very quiet & big starry nights. Mark is a great host, willing to make your stay easy & carefree. The showers are hot, the bathrooms are new, Dubbo is close by and the AMAZING Geurie mountain bike trails 10 minutes away. 5 STARS!

Just what we needed - mini break with lots of fresh air, starry night skies, 1st firewood experience haha! A fantastic place with friendly host Mark, unique decors and almost everywhere is instagram photo worth! A must visit place, highly recommended. We feel so refreshed.

Great views, great facilities, kids loved riding around. Mark was good to talk and really made us welcome. We have been traveling for a couple of weeks since we left and each night my wife and I look at each other and say wish we were at Billy O tonight. Thanks again Mark, I am sure we will see you again.

Absolute slice of heaven just 20min out of Dubbo. I had the place to myself and was able to use the pool to cool off. Nice little walking track round the back and a sunrise you cannot miss! Billy was also very inviting into his property and took time to chat and relax with me. Perfect weekend getawa

Beautiful setting, great amenities and very warm welcome. Mark was a great host, he's building something special here. I recommend checking it out. I slept under the stars, full moon, beautiful surroundings. Shearers beds also great! Bathroom & kitchen facilities well built clean. Thanks Mark!
