Just before we left Carnarvon we received a call from friends from Airlie Beach to say they were travelling down the Western Australian Coast (we were heading up ) and were only a few days away from us so we arranged to meet at Coral Bay. As it was school holidays the caravan parks were full but Bullara Station, a working cattle station who cater also for caravaners were taking in anyone who turned up. They had so much land they just let us all park in the cattle yards. They put on a camp fire, and cooked hamburgers on a huge BBQ for 150 guests outside the shearing shed. As well as morning tea and scones at the Homestead in the mornings.
They were able to provide hot showers and toilets for everyone. You could even try their outdoor shower heated by a ‘donkey’ burner behind.
I loved the quirky touches they had around the station which included their unique sculptures
and tv lounge in the shearing shed.
As you can imagine we caused quite a stir turning up with our boat instead of a caravan.
