Sydney Weekender visits Closeburn House!

Way back in November last year, before the worst of the bushfires and then COVID-19 shut us down, we had the pleasure of hosting Mike Whitney and the Sydney Weekender production team here at Closeburn House for a story they filmed on our unique part of the mountains. At the gateway to the Central West, we’ve been keen to promote all the great things to do and places to visit in the upper mountains and just beyond. So, it was fantastic that Sydney Weekender did a story on a few of those great places to help spread the message.

Talk about perfect timing! The story aired Sunday 17 May, just a few weeks prior to our re-opening for guests. It generated a lot of interest and guest reservations for which I’m super grateful! It’s so great to be back doing what we love here at Closeburn House. And we’ve been overwhelmed by so many wonderful travellers keen to get away and support small businesses in regional areas like ours that have been so hard hit over the last 8 months.

You can view the Sydney Weekender episode (Season 27, Episode 15); our story starts 9 minutes 20 seconds in if you wish to fast forward to it.

When describing our special part of the world just across the mountains, Mike says “there’s a fantastic little region that’s got plenty of heart”, so why not come and discover it for yourself?
