We really enjoyed our recent stay at Bullo River Station. It began with the flight in with lovely views over rocky escarpments and grassy plains where we saw Bullo’s Brahman cattle as well as wild buffalo. At the homestead we were greeted by a friendly guide who looked after our every need. I was keen to look around the station and to visit the aboriginal rock art sites while my husband couldn’t wait to catch a barramundi. Both of us had our wishes fulfilled and more. The ‘more’ included a helicopter trip with Franz (the station owner) to the beautiful cascades where we had a swim, a boat trip up the river to the gorge past areas of breathtaking scenery and a quad-bike ride to a billabong where the abundant birdlife kept us entranced. Franz and his wife Marlee, made us feel very welcome and answered our many questions about station life. On top of all that was the food which was delicious , including the freshest of barramundi (caught that day) and their own beef. If you want to experience life on a REAL outback cattle station, I can highly recommend Bullo.
