[K5-BR] Bullo River Explorer
Bullo River Station in the Northern Territory is the famous cattle station and homestead developed by the Henderson family, and the subject of mother Sara’s inspiring autobiography “From Strength to Strength”
This truly remote property lies 115 km north-east of Kununurra, and occupies an area of 2,023 square kilometres (781 sq mi), supporting a herd of up to 9,000 head of Brahmin cattle.
Bullo River welcomes guests to its sprawling homestead and provides a unique insight into the day-to-day life and operations of a working cattle station.
Departing from Kununurra we track initially over the lush Ord Irrigation Area and onwards to the remote and inaccessible WA/NT border region and Legune Station, the proposed site of the world’s largest prawn aquaculture project . Arriving at Bullo River 30 minutes later we usually conduct a low level fly-over to chase the cattle from the station airstrip!
With 3+ hours at the station there is ample time to meet and chat with the locals and to take a 4WD guided tour to observe at first hand the operations of a remote cattle station. Afterwards your hosts will join you for a gourmet lunch in the station dining room.
The return flight to Kununurra takes us over the remote Keep River National Park.
Available from Kununurra on demand, with a minimum of four guests required. Depart 9.00am return 2.00pm $595 per person. Includes Lunch and Station Tour at Bullo River
