Trilby Station Accommodation

Farmstay NSW

Darling River Camping

Trilby Station, a unique outback farmstay, offers outback country hospitality and riverside accommodation in the fully renovated Stockman's Cottages and the new Shearer's Bunkhouse. Or you may choose to avail yourself of the Powered Caravan Sites and secluded river campsites dotted among age old river gums for some of the best Darling River camping there is.

Guests can self cater or enjoy a range of delicious Australian country-style meals such as Liz's farmyard breakfasts and two or three course dinners, all served to your accommodation or campsite. Advanced bookings are required.... it's a 250km round trip to the corner store after all!

Trilby Station, with a total of 13 bedrooms (26 beds) is ideal for groups, small coach groups or as a conference venue with a difference. Liz enjoys providing morning/afternoon teas and/or lunch and a walking tour to large groups looking for a short break in their journey.

For those doing a road trip or travelling by caravan, we know that you like to just wander and be foot loose and fancy free. However, to avoid disappointment, we suggest you give us a call on 02 6874 7420 (between 8am and 6pm), send a text message to 0419 447 938 or use the contact form a day or two before your arrival in our area. This way we can save you unnecessary driving time by confirming we've got a spot for you.

Please note, we do have Telstra Next G mobile phone coverage at Trilby Station, enabling visitors to easily keep in touch with family and friends. Wireless internet can be accessed on your laptop with the use of a Telstra Wireless USB modem. There is no WIFI.
