The best way to arrive to the homestead is via private charter flight. This is a 30 minute flight from Kununurra or 90 minutes from Darwin.

It is possible to drive to the homestead, although road access is limited at certain times of the year.
12 guest rooms have been styled taking inspiration from their outback setting with earthy tones and natural materials creating a calm ambience. Locally crafted touches introduce outback life to the spaces - expect to see items such as towel holders braided by the local whipmaker and hardware made by a local blacksmith. Cool and comfortable with air-conditioning, rooms open out onto a terrace and shady lawn and also have access to a comfortable communal area where you can help yourself to freshly baked goods and drinks.
All meals are included at Bullo River Station and the delicious cuisine can be enjoyed in a variety of settings - breakfast might be served al fresco on the terrace, lunch could be a picnic by a beautiful freshwater swimming hole, and dinner is usually served in the main dining room. Produce grown by the station itself and ingredients such as beef from the farm and barramundi from the river are integrated into the sumptuous menu.
Choose from an array of exhilarating activities at Bullo River Station. Appreciate the rugged beauty of the Australian outback on a horse ride through untamed wilderness, discover remote waterholes for refreshing swims, or cast your line into the sparkling river waters for a spot of fishing. Boat trips and helicopter tours allow a unique view of the astounding flora and fauna, as well as the remarkable landscape, and you can look forward to searching for some of the 200 species of native birds present on the land and a myriad of other native animals such as the rare pygmy crocodile found on the Bullo River. Get involved in the running of the cattle station taking part in real-life activities including cattle mustering, bore checks, lick runs and feeding poddy calves in an experience that will immerse you in working life in the outback. Once night falls and the carpet of stars above emerge, you can take advantage of the dark skies unaffected by light pollution to gaze at the solar system through telescopes or with the naked eye - a serene moment in nature you are sure to remember for years to come.
Please note the station is closed to guests from October to March each year.
