574km drive from Perth to Kalbarri
Open to visitors between April 1st – October 31st each year. Visitors can enjoy unique local history, wildlife and wildflowers (in season) on this 150 year old working station.
Murchison House Station is a working station located 12 kilometres east of Kalbarri. Camping is available to stay in the homestead camping ground, or for those equipped with a 4WD campervan you can bush-camp out on the 350,000 acre property.
Four kilometres of well maintained gravel road provides access to the historic homestead which is situated on the southern banks on the Murchison River and set amongst hundreds of large shady gum trees. Camping is available here on the rivers edge.
The station is open to the public from April to October and has over 60 km of rugged Indian Ocean shoreline, and over 30km of Murchison river flood plains. Because of the plentiful supply of water, with many permanent soaks and springs, the wild life and bird life is abundant. The terrain is rugged, spectacular and varied, ranging from coastal sand plains and dunes to river gorge country featuring the stunning red Tumblagooda sandstone that is known to the area. Murchison House Station is where the outback meets the ocean, which makes exploring in your 4WD campervan whilst camping here an interesting and challenging prospect. The pristine wilderness of the Station, and the Murchison River is there to be appreciated, and is less than one day’s drive from Perth.
