Experience the vastness and natural beauty of the Outback at Kilcowera Station, halfway between Thargomindah and Hungerford in SW Queensland. Kilcowera is a 49,000 ha working cattle station which also offers accommodation and camping for travelers. Visitors can take the sixty km self drive tour around the property and view Murderer’s Bore, Rustlers Roost, Cardenyabba Lagoon and the RAMSAR listed Lake Wyara. Guests are given an information pack on arrival to assist them in finding the various lagoons, creeks, waterholes, gorges, caves and wildlife to be seen on their tour of the property.Accommodation is provided in clean, comfortable Shearers’ Quarters. Linen is supplied and beds made up for visitors. We can supply meals or visitors can self cater in the fully equipped kitchen.Campers have the option of three separate campgrounds. The Shearers’ Quarters campground is set amongst green lawns and shady trees, power is available and guests will find BBQ’s, fireplaces stocked with wood, picnic tables and a basic camp kitchen.Camping doesn’t get any better than at Cardenyabba Lagoon which has secluded campsites right on the water’s edge with fireplaces and wood. Light the fire, throw your yabby pot in, sit back and watch the birdlife and the sunset over the tranquil water. Better still bring your kayak and have a paddle! And lastly there is true bush camping to be had at Youlaingee Springs where visitors will have a ten thousand star night sky, silence and a very real sense of peace and seclusion.Activities include guided or self guided tours to scenic areas, four wheel driving, bird and wildlife watching, yabbying, bushwalking, camp oven cooking and superb photographic opportunities. Your hosts Greg and Toni are available to answer the many queries you’ll have about Kilcowera and living and working in the Outback. Pets are welcome.

I stayed in the shearers' quarters for 2 nights recently with my niece who was visiting from the UK. We did a station tour with Toni which I couldn't recommend more highly as a way of learning about the complexities of living on the land. They're in drought and there was no

My wife and I booked 3 nights in the shearers quarters on the station. We were fortunate to have the entire building to ourselves. The kitchen was fully equipped and the showers, external to the main building, were clean with limitless hot water. The 60 km of tracks through the

We camped in our tent at the main campsite for just one night, as we were eager to cover some miles early in our road trip. We enjoyed a campfire (with firewood provided), a brilliant starry winter's night and a walk down to the lagoon in the morning. In retrospect we should've

The road from Thargomindah isn't too bad - about 50/50 paved or dirt. Dirt roads are of a good standard but once there is rain....then generally the roads are closed. The roads through the property of Kilcowera may be a little more challenging for the bike but you will be right to arrive at camping sites or the station itself.
