Station Stays generally refer to any type of accommodation on a working pastoral (farming) enterprise in the Outback Regions of Australia.
The Outback of Australia is not as easily defined, as it does not begin and end at a particular point and some might even argue it is more of a feeling or a concept, than an actual place. But for the purpose of this web-site, we have identified The Outback as the remote parts of Australia, not within the boundaries of existing town-sites and Station Stays strictly as working pastoral properties with specific tourism based diversification permits. Any other type of Outback Accommodation is identified accordingly (Eco-Retreat/Wilderness Camping/Safari Tents etc).
All members/operators featured on this web-site are Outback related businesses and featured here with their full involvement, to provide you with the best, up-to-date and relevant information. These station owners are not only welcoming visitors, such as you, into their homes, but willing to share their authentic outback life-style with you. Thanks to the growing number of accommodation providers in these regions, such a unique experience is now so accessible, you can even plan an entire station stay holiday through the Outback of Australia (see Outback Regions …).
Particularly in the Gascoyne-Murchison area of Western Australia, various station owners are offering accommodation ranging from the traditional style of luxurious (airconditioned) station homestead rooms or rustic shearer’s quarters to the modernistic ‘close to nature’ eco-style retreats, complete with luxurious safari-tents and wilderness camping.
One thing they all have in common: their unique locations and experience of the Outback. Whether it’s sitting around a campfire, sharing experiences with complete strangers, admiring the endless landscape in all its vastness and solitude (sheltering an abundant marine and terrestrial wildlife), or it’s lying under the ever-reliable blue outback-sky, followed by a blanket of stars at night … a station stay is an experience you should have at least once in your life and you will treasure forever.
