Welcome

Welcome to Barkala!

Barkala Farm hosts

Welcome to a farmstay with a difference! Barkala Farm is "The Jewel of the Pilliga", nestled in a beautiful valley between the forests of the Pilliga and the foothills of the Warrumbungle Range, in northwestern NSW.

As well as being a working farm, it is also home to the fabulous creative energy of Pilliga Pottery, the largest and most unique pottery in NSW. Staying here is like stepping into another world, with its fascinating European-inspired eco-architecture, gorgeous natural surrounds of farmland, bushland, craggy ridges and living forest, extensive native gardens teeming with birds, and little vistas, hideaways, and unexpected highlights wherever you look. Whether you're looking for activity or tranquillity, this is a truly special place you will never forget.

Barkala Farm and Pilliga Pottery is owned and operated by the Rickert family, who emigrated from Germany in the early 80’s looking for a pioneer lifestyle, creative challenges, and fresh air – and they found it! With hard work, vision and love they have overcome drought, bushfires, and family heartache to slowly build up an oasis of cultural beauty in what many consider to be the middle of nowhere. Maria and her sons Johannes married to Regina and Bernhard are the heart of the enterprise, with occasional help from their sister Eva. A team of local artists, craftspeople and “characters” round things out.

They also have a steady stream of backpackers from all over the world lending a hand, making this place into a mini-United Nations, where people can share a wealth of cultures and experiences.
