Camping on the Murchison River at Murchison House Station is a truly wonderful experience
The homestead camp ground offers unpowered 2WD accessible bush camping and stretches for about 200m along the rivers edge.
Camping in the Homestead Camp Ground at Murchison House Station means that camping is accessible to everyone, provided they have at minimum a basic tent, cooking gear and are not reliant on power. Bush camping with a few modern conveniences.
Our camp ground situated on the Murchison River can provide a suitable spot for people that have a little car with a tent and basic camping facilities, to those with a bigger off-road van or Motorhome.
It is real camping, no power, but with access to basic ablutions with hot showers not far from the camp ground. So it is not the usual caravan park style camping with all the camps in neat little rows. The number of camp sites is restricted so that each camp has enough space to enjoy the experience.
You will have access to the campers kitchen if needed, plus there is plenty of fresh drinking water. There is also fire pit, with free barbecues nearby, where you can relax under the stars and share stories with other campers if you like.
Relax on some lovely walks, and you can enjoy fishing, swimming in the river and kayaking. Or, of course you can just chill out in your chair and soak it all in.
Please be advised that CHAINSAWS are not permitted on the station. You are allowed to use small pieces and kindling that is on the ground but no chopping down of tress.
You can use a generator if you please but be mindful of other people around you. Generators must not be used between 8pm and 7am.
Friendly happy Dogs are permitted on the station. Please leave them in your vehicle until you arrive at your camping destination. Please don't walk your dogs up near the office and Homestead grounds. Please keep them with you and clean up their mess. No chasing of livestock.
