Murchison House Station is a 350 000 acre property just a short drive from the coastal resort town of Kalbarri
and adjacent to the Kalbarri National Park.
Closed to the public for many years visitors can now enjoy unique local history, wildlife and wildflowers (in season) on this 150 year old working station.
Four kilometres of well maintained gravel road provides access to the historic homestead which is situated on the banks of the Murchison River and set amongst hundreds of large shady gum trees.
The station has over 60km of rugged Indian Ocean shoreline and over 30 km of Murchison River floodplains.
Because of the plentiful supply of water, with permanent soaks and springs, wildlife and birdlife is abundant. The terrain is rugged, spectacular and varied,
ranging from coastal sand plains and dunes to river gorge country featuring the stunning red sandstone that is known to the area.
Originally settled in 1858, the rich history of Murchison House has been shaped by the hands of pioneering battlers,
wealthy wool merchants and evan an Indian prince ! Several of the early buildings still stand, including the original homestead ( circa 1860), shearing shed and convict
built shearers quarters ( circa 1880).
Today it's a family owned and operated venture endeavouring to continue the pastoral traditions and offer visitors an insight into outback life.
Historically a sheep property, the station now focues on the production of beef cattle and rangeland goats.
Accommodation and camping facilities are available and a range of tours and activities are also on offer. Visitors can enjoy the unique bush setting or just sit back and enjoy the tranquil surrounds
