Bullo River Station, Australia
Remote, wild and visually stunning with Outback activities galore and perfect hosts, this half million acre working cattle property in the far north-west corner of the Northern Territory, is the quintessential Australian Outback Station.
Your arrival by helicopter from Kununurra, (or three hour drive) captures the sheer scale and beauty of this extraordinary Australian outpost where your hosts, Daniel and Sarah, will extend a warm Outback welcome. Bullo River is a working station complete with horses, four wheel drives, helicopters and a colourful crew of stockmen - and you will gain a fascinating insight into the daily workings of Outback station life.
The scenery here is stunning – the mighty Bullo River meanders for over 50 miles through a spectacular valley on the station – and gorges, crystal clear swimming holes, waterfalls, termite mounds and boab trees dot the landscape. The property has an abundance or wildlife and birdlife including crocodiles which lurk on the muddy river banks and butterflies after which the river and station are named (‘Bullo’ means butterfly in the local Aboriginal language).
Days at Bullo can be spent as you please – cruise down the gorge in a boat, fish for barramundi on a lovely stretch of the Bullo River (the station has some of the best barramundi fishing in Australia), spot crocodiles, horse-ride, visit some of Bullo’s fascinating aboriginal rock art sites or helicopter to a stunning freshwater (crocodile free) swimming hole for a refreshing dip.
Accommodation is provided in 12 comfortable, air-conditioned double rooms with ensuite bathrooms, housed in a separate building just 30 metres from the main homestead – and there is also a small swimming pool. Dinners are especially memorable – an informal affair served in the homestead, frequently including free-range prime beef and freshly-caught barramundi cooked in paperbark over hot coals.
