Trilby Station - Bourke
On the banks of the majestic Darling River, Trilby Station is great way to experience beautiful outback NSW in comfort. You’ll stay with the Murray family on their fifth generation sheep station, which stretches over 80,900 hectares.
Accommodation is in air-conditioned two-bedroom cabins and visitors may choose to self-cater or have home-cooked meals delivered to their cabin. You’ll enjoy activities such as birdwatching and walking on nature trails, fishing and yabbying, and canoeing.
With about 24,000 Merino sheep, Trilby Station traces its history back to the vast Dunlop station - the first ever sheep station to complete a mechanical sheering in 1888. You’ll discover abundant wildlife on the station, near the village of Louth.
Trilby Station is about 1.5 hours by car from Bourke, in northwest NSW. From Broken Hill, it’s about 400 km on the Darling River Run, a drive that follows the river through the spectacular outback. Rex Regional Express has flights from Sydney to Broken Hill.
