I just spent a wonder filled time with my wife and friends at Kilcowera Station, everything was excellent. The self drive tour maps are excellent, signs to tell you what that tree is, and other points of interest. Toni and Greg are such good hosts, nothing was too much trouble, They even lent us a yabbie net to catch a good feed .

We've just returned from a wonderful camping trip to Kilcowera Station. We never realised the Australian outback was so beautiful and Kilcowera seems to have it all - incredible beauty and colours, a feeling of isolation, lagoons/water holes, yabbies (sautéed in olive oil and lemon juice), wildlife (kangaroos, emus everywhere, amazing birds), great hospitality, history and the icing on the cake, for me anyway, hot showers! The self-drive tour to the National Park is a must do with lots of points of interest along the way and sitting by a campfire next to the lagoon is a great way to unwind. Thanks Kilcowera, it was well worth the long drive.

We spent four nights in the Shearers Quarters - double bed room - and enjoyed every minute of our stay. There is plenty to do: bird watching, getting up close with wildlife generally, catching yabbies, and slowing down enough to take a bit more notice of what's around you. The owners, Greg and Toni, are good hosts, not intrusive but there to help. If you take a caravan or camp, there are plenty of options. You can set up at the Shearers Quarters with power and water or bush camp at Cardenyabba lagoon and use the showers back at the Shearers Quarters whenever you want to. The station is very accessible from Thargomindah, about 90km in total, with about 30km of that unsealed road in quite good condition when we were there (27-30 July 2012) You can also approach from the south via Hungerford, but that road may vary more in condition. Check first..

Room Tip: Askfor a queen size bed when you book, if you are staying in the Shearers Quarters.
