Murchison House Station is one of the oldest pastoral stations in Western Australia.
Murchison House Station is a 350 000 acre property just a short drive (12 kms) from the coastal resort town of Kalbarri, 650 km north of Perth, Western Australia.
Originally settled in 1858, the rich history of Murchison House has been shaped by the hands of pioneering battlers, wealthy wool merchants and even an Indian Prince! It is one of the oldest pastoral leases in Western Australia.
Today, it is a family owned and operated venture continuing the pastoral traditions and offering visitors an insight into outback life.
Visitors can enjoy unique local history, wildlife and wildflowers (in season) on this 150 year old working station. We welcome visitors between the months of April to October.
Four kilometres of well maintained gravel road provides access to the historic homestead which is situated on the southern banks on the Murchison River and set amongst hundreds of large shady gum trees. Camping is available here on the rivers edge.
The station has over 60 km of rugged Indian Ocean shoreline and over 30 km of Murchison river flood plains. Because of the plentiful supply of water, with many permanent soaks and springs, the wild life and bird life is abundant. The terrain is rugged, spectacular and varied, ranging from coastal sand plains and dunes to river gorge country featuring the stunning red Tumblagooda sandstone that is known to the area. Murchison House Station is where the outback meets the ocean, which makes exploring in your 4WD whilst camping here an interesting and challenging prospect. The pristine wilderness of the Station, and the Murchison River is there to be appreciated, and is less than one day's drive from Perth.
