How to Find Us
Yarrabin is located in O'Connell approximately 150km west of Penrith and approximately 200km from the Sydney CBD. An easy 2 hour drive from Penrith over the picturesque Blue Mountains, 31/2 hours by train or only 40 minutes by plane. Our closest major city is Bathurst (20 minutes drive to the NW) and Oberon (25 minutes drive to the SE). We are also about half way between Sydney and Dubbo - a perfect half way stop if you are going to the Western Plains Zoo at Dubbo.
Getting here earlier than expected? Make a stop at the Avenue Cafe, located on the O’Connell Road just across the O’Connell pub, for a amazing local Fish River coffee, lunch or yummie cake (opened every Friday to Sunday from 08.30 AM till 04.30 PM).
