For bush camping, 4 wheel driving, kayaking and exploring, this is up there with the best. You need to be self sufficient and have a 4wd with high clearance ( recommend). We were lucky, never saw a vehicle until the day we were leaving ( 4 day stay). We probably had the pick of all the available camping spots and... More

We stayed for 4 nights over easter 2015 on the North side of the Murchison river bush camping, fantastic location and very peaceful with plenty of wildlife. Self sufficiency, a decent 4wd with clearance and an adventurous streak with a must to see the propey in all its glory!

Stayed here for two nights in July and was seriously disappointed by the dirty and very very old facilities in the communal kitchen, toilet block and showers. It looked like nothing had changed... or been cleaned properly... in many years!! Two showers in the men's side for the whole place with no doors (only a curtain), nowhere to put your... More

Stayed here for 2 nights in our caravan-great value at $22 a night. The camping area is along the Murchison River and a lovely spot to stay. This is a working farm and you are basically in the middle of it- lots of cute goats and some llamas to pet. There's showers, toilets and a laundry which are basic but... More

We stayed at MHS for 10 days. We were tent camping in the designated camp area and it really is a beautiful location, close to the river and very peaceful. It's a good location for sightseeing and accessing the town. It can be a long walk to the ablution block, depending on where you are camped, but the showers and... More

We chose this location as our base to explore and enjoy the surroundings of Kalbarri. Our group had two pop up caravans, one of which is off road. We did not want to be in a crowded park but enjoy the open style camping. The MHS suited us fine with a choice of camping near the homestead with showers and... More

Such a great camping spot right on the Murchison River. Peaceful, remote and such an amazing part of the world. We enjoyed the Murchison all to ourselves by kayaking down river and enjoying the most beautiful sunset. There is no power and there is a reasonable walk to the ablution block. Expect to pay more than the average powered site... More

We spent a couple of days in Kalbarri ... Initially wanting to do some walks in the National Parks but due to the closure of a lot of the Areas due to road repairs/ closures we decided to visit Murchison House Station. 4WD self driving tours are available as well as self guided walking tours. $10 pp. ( for the...

A great location for kids who could explore the farm but not if you are wanting a bit of peace and quiet. When you book to stay on a working sheep shearing station, you expect basic accommodation, which it was (bed and a lamp bulb, communual shower/toilet block) but what you do expect is that the common facilities and rooms...

Fantastic place to relax amongst nature at its best. The camping facilities were basic but clean with ample drinking water, flushing toilets and shower. The collection of army equipment and the large bulldozer was a hit with the kids. The camping and 4wding was excellent. We will be back
