Turlee Station is a working sheep, wheat and cattle station next door to Mungo National Park in outback NSW. The 145,000 acre property is situated within the Willandra Lakes World Heritage Area and opened its doors to tourists in September 2007. Nathen and Sophie Wakefield proudly offer a family owned and operated farm stay experience with the Wakefield family having owned stations in the local Mungo and Pooncarie districts since 1904.
Des and Diane Wakefield raised four sons whilst at Turlee, the youngest of which, Nathen, now a partner in the station stock and cropping business. Des and Diane still live on the station in the Turlee homestead and remain active in the station stock and cropping business. Sophie and Nathen along with their children live at the Chibnalwood Station Homestead, 8km from the accommodation facilities.
Being a working station, we close our shearer’s quarters for two weeks of the year from the beginning of August to accommodate our shearing team, the camp ground and bush cabins however remain operational.
Being a working property we also cannot be there at all times to meet and greet you upon arrival.
Our check in process is clearly sign posted and is via UHF radio with full instructions on location. We do guarantee that there is always someone on property with you at all times and always make a concerted effort to meet and mingle with our guests giving you the best opportunity possible to experience station first hand!
Sophie and Nathen do their very best to accommodate any special needs that you might have.
We know you will enjoy your time here as much as we enjoy sharing our piece of Australia with our guests and friends.
Your hosts - Sophie & Nathen
