Trilby Station

Wilcannia to Burke is a long way round by road but there is a shorter route via an outback track that cuts through so it is 2  days of bumping along on dusty corrugated tracks. The track is dry so we make good progress and stop for a drink at the Tilpa Hotel, another remote pub where we have stayed before. We head for Trilby Station, a 320,000 acre sheep and cattle station. They have camping areas that spread several kilometres down the river. Each area has it's own dunny (as in photo).Talk about a room with a view! So great remote camping and a very interesting station and owners too. They took time to explain to us how the farm runs and how their children have been educated over the years through the school of the air. Also how sometimes they are cut off for weeks at a time by floods so the only way to go shopping etc. is in their own plane. Interestingly feral goats are now the farms main source of income. They are rounded up a couple of times a year and sent off mainly to the middle eastern market. With the addition of their own small swimming pool and mud maps to find your way round this huge farm this was a fantastic place to spend a couple of days. To understand how big this place is we were told that the couples son lives in a small house at the other side of their land and it is 90 miles away!
