Visit Bullo River Station, Australia

This far-flung, untamed station in the far reaches of Australia’s wild Northern Territory is the Outback at its quintessential best.

Stretching over half a million acres of grassy dust plains, crossed by bronze, twisted rivers and flecked with gnarled, leathery boab trees it is home to 8,500 Brahman-cross cattle.

Wildlife

The station is encircled by the Victoria River, with dramatic escarpments inscribed with rock art, and waters crammed with barramundi and crocodiles. Wild buffalo, dingoes and mobs of wallabies roam the plains, whilst native and migratory birds lend colour and sound to what is already impressive country.

Getting there

Reaching Bullo by light aircraft from Darwin or Kununurra you fly over a panorama of jagged escarpments and rivers before landing on the station’s airstrip by the homestead.

For the adventurous with time to spare, you can also reach the station by road - 500 miles, mostly on dirt, with the station’s driveway itself being some fifty miles long.

The distances being all part of an authentic Outback experience.

Station Life

Jackeroo, Bullo River StationThe charming hosts at Bullo River Station are Marlee, who was brought up on the farm, and her Austrian-born husband Franz. With their children, they thrive on their life here and like nothing more than inviting guests to share in the daily home and station life.

Guests at this working station gain a front-seat view, from building fences to seasonal cattle mustering, dealing with washed-away roads and wild cattle wreaking havoc. You have the option to participate as much or as little as you wish, so you may find yourself learning the Aussie bushcraft of cracking a bullwhip or helping to rope cattle.

Novice fisherman are guaranteed action pitching their wits against Australia’s famous fighting fish, the barramundi, or you can take a rock art cruise along the river in the company of a local guide.

When Franz isn’t using his helicopter to muster cattle there is perhaps the chance of an aerial view of this untouched land.
