Just 12km east of Kalbarri, situated on the southern banks of the Murchison River you will find Murchison House Station, one of the oldest pastoral stations in WA. Set amongst hundreds of shady gumtrees this historic homestead and station is the size of Singapore so if you love four wheel driving a visit here is a must do.

  • Open to the public from April to October, this 350,000-acre property has access to the Indian Ocean shoreline, as well as the Murchison River flood plains. Home to the stunning red Tumblagooda sandstone, the terrain is rugged, spectacular, and varied, ranging from coastal sand plains and dunes to river gorge country.
  • There are several expeditions you can take here so if you don’t own a 4-Wheel drive don’t worry, tours such as The Murchison Experience Tour gives you the chance to experience the property year-round. You can take a 4-wheel drive tour around the station, take a walk around the property to a beautiful riverbank setting, paddle on a canoe, and have a go at cooking your own damper, whilst having dinner prepared for you.
  • As you explore the station your guides will fill you in on the stations fascinating history. Established in 1858 by Charles von Bibra and once owned by an Indian Prince, the station primarily managed sheep, nowadays running goats and hosting tourists.
  • Visitors can also tailor make a tour with The Murchison Experience crew, with the option to experience bush camping at Murchison House Station, available from April to October.
