While travelling the Gascoyne Murchison Outback Pathways you will drive through a lot of beautiful station country. Many of these stations offer tourism experiences for visitors. Station Stays give you insight into true outback life and are a unique kind of accommodation; many station owners open their homes to visitors and encourage you to 'make yourself at home' during your stay. You may find it difficult to leave after comfortably settling into your new 'home away from home'.
Station dwellings in the Gascoyne Murchison region hold much historical significance with some homesteads in the area dating back to the late 1880's when they were first constructed.
