Short Property Description
Beautiful, remote, beef cattle station in the Gascoyne Region of Western Australia.
Full Property Description
Our beautiful, remote station is located in the Gascoyne region of Western Australia. We produce beef cattle, mainly for the local Australian market.
Our focus is on managing our cattle to reduce their impact on the country. We are working on erosion control to help revegetate and rehydrate the land.
We maintain a small fruit and vegetable garden so that we can have fresh organic food.
Our homestead is powered by a solar power system.
Our station is centrally located only a few hours drive from Mount Augustus and the Kennedy Ranges and we are 250km from Carnarvon.
Organic/Biological methods we use
Our beef cattle are organic and grass fed. We use ‘low stress stock handling’ techniques to produce a calm, quiet herd. We are also working on using trap yards to muster cattle. This reduces our fossil fuel consumption by reducing vehicle, plane and helicopter usage. It also helps us to manage stock numbers and reduce their impact on the land.
We are building leaky weirs with recycled fencing materials to repair erosion effected areas and revegetate with native grasses.
Our small fruit and vegetable garden is grown using organic techniques.
There is no mobile phone reception.
Access to wifi is available.
We have 1 bedroom with airconditioning, 2 other bedrooms are available with fans. A kitchen is available if you prefer to do your own meals seperately. There is a TV and DVD player in the kitchen / dining area.
You will need your own vehicle to get to the station.
If you don’t like frogs, bugs and other creepy crawlies, this probably isn’t the place for you.
