We are looking into staying at an outback station while in Qld or the NT. Can anyone recommend one or two that have good interaction for kids (big and small).

Old Andado on Binns Tk is one very special place . . . it's a time capsule.

Kilcowera Station in SW Queensland is a business member of ExplorOz. I haven't stayed there but intend to one day as for some reason it sounds very appealing. Just enter their name in the ExplorOz search facility to read all about it. Hope you find something great and when you do, please post a report. All the best for a great holiday. Megan

Can recommend Kilcowera, stayed there last year and had a great time, plenty to explore and see.
Cheers

Agree with the above, 2013 went in for two nights and stayed four.
There's also Trilby Station on the Darling River out of Louth.
Enjoy.

Judy and I stayed at Pine View Station last year and got talking to the station owner, they advised that if you wish to travel to a certain spot for a stay, you can also contact companies like Edler's and such in some of the big towns. They can also inform you of other stations that do farm stays, and as well as put feelers out for you with a bit of notice. We enjoyed our stay and learnt a lot about the life of station families. We stayed in the shearers quarters for $10- a night with all the great facilities, and you could also arrange to have family meals at the homestead with station staff for a minimal fee. hope this helps Garry R

life is too short, so out and about enjoy

Old Andado is a top spot for a bit of early Australian settlement history ( maybe not so interesting as when Molly Clarke was there. She was a gem ).
There are probably many others, but a must go to is Trilby Station, on the Darling River at Louth, just south of Bourke in N.S.W.
Hosts Garry and Liz Murray will make you welcome, with many camp sites along the Darling River that runs through the property to chose from.
Much early settler history abounds on the property and there are a couple of self drive tours to do, that showcase this.
There is a window to the past as well as a look at the present at Trilby.
Have a look at trilbystation.com
Always do right. This will gratify some and astonish the rest.
