Liz & Gary Murray - Trilby StationTake a break... stay a while... we want you to experience what is our backyard. Recapture the spirit of wide, open spaces as you take a peek at our 320,000 acre station with a 'Mud Map' in your hand ... throw a line in and fish for Cod or Yellow-belly ... boil your yabbies on an open fire and eat them fresh ... grab a Trilby Station bird list, enjoying walking tracks along the river and billabong while observing the 135 identified species on the station (click here for our birdlist or ask Liz for a copy when you arrive) .... Walk with the wildlife .... Smell the bush ... canoe the majestic Darling River and billabongs. You'll be glad you did.

About Trilby

trilby-station-aerial Following above average rainfall and flooding of the Darling River in both 2011 and 2012 (where Trilby was isolated by road for three months each time!! Mail, stores and of course the Murray's had to be air-lifted in/out during that period), Trilby Station is now in the midst of another dry spell, as so often happens in these semi arid regions of Outback NSW, however with a few recent half-decent falls of rain we now have a nice 'green pick' coming along ... and are constantly looking to the skies for follow-up rain to really get pastures growing well, and now is as good a time as any to explore Outback NSW, our property and the Darling River Run .

Trilby Station Activities

Gary tends to keep a low profile. "The station doesn't run itself" he says and he have thousands of four legged 'guests' to keep happy. You might spot Gary overhead as he musters the sheep and checks the station bores from his Cessna 172 – his "Toyota in the sky", or come across him 'out the back' as you explore the station with your 'mud map'.
