Kilcowera Station Stay ticks all the boxes for people who are looking for an authentic outback experience. Whether you would like to just kick back and camp or get more involved and experience station life, then this is the place for you.
Greg and Toni Sherwin started their station stay business offering travellers somewhere peaceful, safe and quiet to camp or stay.
They’re located near the village of Hungerford, Currawinya National Park and Thargomindah. You have a choice of accommodation from their comfortable Shearer’s Quarters or stay in your own van. You can camp near the homestead with use of the showers, toilets, laundry, fireplaces, barbecues and basic camp kitchen.
Otherwise head a little further away and bush camp at Cardenyabba Lagoon. You can choose from a series of private and secluded campsites along the waterfront.
Greg and Toni understand the pull of the outback that people from all walks of life want to experience and have welcomed people onto their property. These dedicated and passionate graziers use an intelligent, insightful and ecofriendly approach to land management. They believe maintaining the health of the soils, the native vegetation and native domestic
wildlife is vital for our country if we want a sustainable industry. This is valid for both a personal and national level.
