The new shearer’s quarters were established on Trilby Station after the original building was destroyed by fire and today’s shearers would be hard pressed to find more comfortable lodgings anywhere.
There is a total of 9 twin share bedrooms – the six inside bedrooms have reverse cycle air-conditioning and the three older, renovated bedrooms outside have fans/heaters, all have electric blankets. With a slow combustion wood fire, share bathrooms and laundry, TV – the Shearer’s Bunkhouse is ideal for solo travellers, couples, large groups travelling together and workers/contractors in the area.
The caterer’s size kitchen has all modern conveniences (2 gas stoves, fridge, freezer, coolroom and microwave) and is fully equipped, right down to camp ovens for that traditional outback meal. Outside you’ll find a camp kitchen with commercial gas BBQ, thatched gazebo and paved campfire area – ideal to watch the sun setting after another exhilarating day in the outback.
All linen and towels are also provided and guests are welcome to use the pool situated near the homestead and cottages.
Sorry, no pets.
