Information

The open bore is about 12km east of the homestead. At the time of our visit in 2012, it was one of the last uncapped bores in the area. The bore fed 3 channels, nth channel was just to the swamp, the east channel and pool for the bath tubs that were supplied for enjoyment, or the west channel that we camped at. You need to go down stream about 60meters to get into the channel and slowly walk back to the head due to the temperature of the water. After 10min stay in the channel you came out like a white wrinkly prune. Their is a long drop toilet available about 100metres from the channels. We arrived just after heavy rains, and having the rtt we were able to get to the bore. The stations owners closed the track to caravans and trailers due to the conditions at the time , but allowed tents etc. The station also catered for large school groups at the time (camping).
This is a must see place to visit, and once there it was hard to leave. The peace and quite was so relaxing. The station owners also done spot checks to make sure everything was ok, and made sure our stay was good.
