Accommodation at Royal Far West

Download our brochure

Affordable accommodation that’s perfectly situated for enjoying all that Manly has to offer.

Drummond House is located on the Royal Far West site, adjacent to the Centre for Country Kids on Wentworth Street.

We are just a few steps from the iconic Manly Beach and within easy walking distance to a range of public transport options, as well as a wide variety of boutiques, specialty shops, local cafes and restaurant. You can also make the most of the fabulous beaches with surfing, scuba diving, snorkelling, kayaking and paddle-boarding all generally available nearby.

Plus, by booking with Royal Far West, you’ll be helping to provide life-changing health and developmental care for Australia’s country kids.

It is fabulous to know that when you use this accommodation (think boarding school meets bed’n breakfast, in a superbly convenient location) your money goes towards helping rural children and their families to access the health and education services they need, to take some of the strain off them – great to be able to support the charity!
