“Murchison House Station is a 350 000 acre property just a short drive from the coastal resort town of Kalbarri, 650 km north of Perth, Western Australia.
Closed to the public for many years, visitors can now enjoy unique local history, wildlife and wildflowers (in season) on this 150 year old working station. We welcome visitors between the months of April to October.
Four kilometres of well maintained gravel road provides access to the historic homestead which is situated on the southern banks on the Murchison River and set amongst hundreds of large shady gum trees. Camping is available here on the rivers edge or you can follow a self guided walk around the historic buildings followed by morning tea.
The station has over 60 km of rugged Indian Ocean shoreline and over 30 km of Murchison river flood plains. Because of the plentiful supply of water, with many permanent soaks and springs, the wild life and bird life is abundant. The terrain is rugged, spectacular and varied, ranging from coastal sand plains and dunes to river gorge country featuring the stunning red tumblagooda sandstone that is known to the area. Murchison House Station is where the outback meets the ocean, which makes exploring in your 4WD an interesting and challenging prospect. The pristine wilderness of the Station, and the Murchison River is there to be appreciated, and is less than one day’s drive from Perth.”
