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 .
