New Norcia Hotel, New Norcia

A leisurely two hour drive north from Perth, through the scenic Swan and Chittering Valleys, our little piece of Spain emerges out of the Australian bush at the side of the Great Northern Highway. The grand facade of the New Norcia Hotel, with its high arches topped by eight solid Roman pillars, looks down on the entrance to the Town. Entering the Hotel, you step across the word ‘Salve’ or ‘Welcome’, and your hosts, Rick and Joanna Ryan, invite you to look around the public areas of the Hotel, before settling down to enjoy a refreshing drink on the terazzo-finished wide verandah. You may wish to take the short stroll down the hill to the Museum and Art Gallery to purchase your ticket for the Town Walking Tour. Tours begin at 1100 and 1330.

After your Tour, you can return to the Hotel to unwind and enjoy a delicious meal, which may include the famous New Norcia Bakeries bread. The late afternoons and evenings at New Norcia have a gentleness that reflects the Benedictine Community’s wish of ‘Pax’ or ‘Peace’ to all its Guests. By the time that the glorious sunset has captured your attention, you will want to book a room to enjoy the starry night sky. There is one room with ensuite, and the remaining 16 share common bathrooms that take you back to country hotels of yesteryear.

The simple yet comfortable accommodation at the New Norcia Hotel is complimented by reasonable rates and warmth of service that can only be found at a country hotel. The New Norcia Hotel is the perfect base for you to indulge in an unhurried exploration of Australia’s only monastic town.

Australia has miles and miles of shoreline but which beaches are really great? Ultimately it depends on what you're looking for in a beach. Pristine wilderness without a single footprint in sight, the sparkle of cosmopolitan high rise on the waters edge, the adrenalin pumping roar of a powerful surf beach, or quite simply the perfect white squeaky sand that squelches between your toes. See our short list of Australia's best beaches.
