Bluff Downs Historic Station Stay is a family operated working station that is perfect for four-wheel-drive trips to the yards and windmills. Definitely a great opportunity to experience the real Aussie outback and characters that goes with it. They even offer camping in this historic homestead suitable for caravans and big rigs. It has powered and unpowered sites with great facilities. If you prefer to have some privacy and move away from the view of the paddocks, they have bed and breakfast accommodation available. Meals are also available upon request. Your stay would be enjoyable as they have lots of farm activities and tours to choose from.
