Places to Stay / Camp

Farm Stays and Station / Ranch Stays - Bush Camping Grounds


Farm Stays and Station/Ranch Stays
Farm Stays




Many rural sheep and cattle properties have extended their enterprises by providing a range of accommodation facilities such as cabins, shearing quarters as well as camping and caravan sites.

Station Stays can provide an experience of a lifetime.  They are just not another place to spend a night catching some shut eye.  They offer a unique experience of living life on the land.

Many Station Stays allow you to join in on the everyday activities of a working sheep or cattle property.  You may even be able to witness mustering, shearing, drafting, driving property vehicles, taking property tours, fencing, fishing and observing flora and fauna.

Quite often you are encouraged to participate in farm activities.  This can be an excellent opportunity for children to learn the intricate workings of farm life.  There are also opportunities for them to witness distance education over the air. 

Staying at a station also offers an opportunity to meet new people and make new friends.  The properties are usually off the beaten track and can offer a new perspective on outback travelling.

Bush Camping grounds

National Parks & Wildlife Service (NPWS) – this organisation manages national parks, regional parks, state conservation areas, Aboriginal areas, historic sites and nature reserves.  Each NPWS state/territory has a website with a ‘Find Park’ search with the option for you to select camping facilities to fit your particular needs and the fee payable.

Some national parks still allow payment for a permit to camp by placing money in an envelope and dropping it into a secured slot but the trend now is to pay on-line and print off a receipt before you go.  If the latter system applies to the national park you are visiting and you have not paid the fee for your permit to camp on-line, you can incur an ‘on the spot’ fine as well as be asked to move on.  If you do not have access to a computer you can telephone them and pay by credit card.


Bush Camping Bush Retreats – there are a number of privately owned bush retreats who provide camping facilities where you can get away from city life and relax in either a rainforest retreat or near a surf beach.  Do a Google Search to find one for you.
