Things To Do
Choose a day filled with dust, sweat and the exhilaration of station life. Or spend the day exploring stunning landscapes, waterfalls, swimming in remote waterholes, barramundi fishing and discovering Aboriginal rock art and wildlife.
HELICOPTER - Witness Bullo River Station’s half a million acres of breathtaking pristine landscape by helicopter. ‘From the air, the magnitude and spectacle of Bullo River Station is jaw dropping’, Australian Style Magazine.
HIKING - Explore some of Bullo’s endless landscape on foot on one of our guided hiking tours. Well-trodden by cattle or wallabies, the trails will take you to billabongs, water holes and river pools where you can watch (and listen) to the wildlife. Take in breathtaking views as you traverse along the gorges, ridgeline and explore Aboriginal rock art sites. Discover secret waterfalls and natural swimming pools, great for a rewarding and refreshing swim.
BIRDS & WILDLIFE - Birds, wallabies, crocodiles, goannas and other reptiles are native to the station. The cool mornings and evenings are the best time to see the wildlife as they congregate on the water’s edge. The station is a bird watchers paradise with over 100 resident and migratory bird species spotted on the property. Emus, magpie geese, whistling ducks, wedge-tailed eagles, red wing parrots, brolgas and the elegantly long-legged jabiru to name a few. One of the world’s two known populations of the pygmy crocodile is found on the Bullo River. This elusive reptile is a rare but delightful sight.
ABORIGINAL ROCK ART - Numerous Aboriginal rock art sites have been found hidden in the station’s rugged red cliffs and ridge lines. They are thought to be the work from the Miriuwung-Gajerrong people who lived on and managed the land before white people came. We are still learning the cultural significance of these vivid depictions.
The galleries are only accessible by guided tour in an all-terrain vehicle or helicopter.
STATION ACTIVITIES - Join the team as they tackle the day’s activities. You’ll get out on the station in four-wheel drives, all-terrain vehicles or even on horseback. Activities include bore checks, lick runs and cattle yard work. There’s poddy calves to be fed and muster training to do. Or take a farm tour to learn about everything we do.
Cattle mustering is seasonal in the dry and guests are welcome to watch.
FISHING - The wild Bullo River winds 80km through the station, offering tidal and freshwater fishing. Whilst renowned for our barramundi, there are plenty of other fish to try your hand at.
Our guides are available to take novices through to professional anglers to experience some of the top end’s best fishing and maybe show you a local trick or two! You can fish from the boats, river bank or for an optional extra you can try heli-fishing to remote locations that have had very little human interaction.
Quality fishing gear is supplied and included in the nightly rate. Specialised heli-fishing tours are available (charges apply).
HORSE RIDING - Bring your boots and experience Bullo River Station from the back of Australia’s legendary stock horse. Or experience the serenity of the outback and wildlife with a horse ride along bush tracks, billabongs and rivers.
Then quench your thirst as the horses are rubbed down at the end of the ride.
There are stock horses available for guests to ride subject to riding ability with expert assistance and guidance of one of our team members.
