We stayed in the cabins at Turlee Station and really enjoyed the experience. The cabins are about 30kms from the Mungo National Park Information Centre which is the main attraction. The facilities in the cabin were very good with all the cooking gear we needed, a comfortable bed, hot showers and a true outback atmosphere.

We found our group of 18 at Turlee Station after the Campground at Mungo National Park was full to the brim over Easter. Nathan and Sophie and their extended family were very welcoming. We enjoyed Sheep Races, the shearing shed tour including sheep dog demonstations, shearing, whip cracking and freshly made scones. The campground was peaceful with great hot showers... More

I was a bit disappointed with Turlee Station. While our welcome was friendly, we weren't given any direction on amenities - it seemed like having guests at the station was all a bit of a hassle. We felt more like a burden to our hosts rather than welcomed guests. We chose to stay at Turlee Station after reading the website... More
