DO I NEED TO MAKE A BOOKING?
We do prefer to receive bookings, especially to try and have someone at the homestead when you arrive. This is not always possible as we do have other jobs to do on the station. If we are not expecting anyone, you might find yourself in front of a locked gate for a few hours. Our office is situated opposite the shearing shed (the large building you see when you arrive at the homestead) on the verandah of the manager’s cottage. You can pull up in front of the cottage. If you cannot see anyone, please ring the pipe bell at the beginning of the path loudly and the electronic bell left of the door.
To get access to the beaches on either Prickly Point peninsula or Boorabuggatta, you need to come to the homestead which is on the left hand side, 3 km from the Useless Loop Road. Check in/out is between 9am to 6pm. Sundays Closed for Arrivals. Public Holidays : Contact the station via email or phone to organise arrival times. If you plan leaving outside opening hours, please ask for the alternative way for return and refund of the key, when you book in.

We do allow fires from the 1st of May to the end of September. An open fire ban is in place in the Shire of Shark Bay from the 1st October to the 30th of April. “No fires are permitted during that period. A breach of this rule will result in the immediate evection of all persons staying at the offending campsite. The maximum penalty under section 32 of the act of the Bush Fires Act for a person who lights a fire under circumstances likely to injure persons or damage property is 20 years imprisonment. The law takes these offences seriously and so do we.” Collecting of wood is not permitted as it causes degradation of vegetation and removes animals’ habitats.
