World’s Top Ten Eco-Lodges: Best of the Outback at Burrawang West Station
If you are looking for an authentic Australian Outback experience, Burrawang West Station retreat provides a complete adventure experience for private and exclusive family and leisure gatherings. Nestled within Burrawang’s 14,000 acres of rich pastures and azure skies, this magnificent estate includes a quintessential Australian homestead and offers a unique blend of adventure and relaxation.
The four classic air conditioned lodges, with fully screened verandahs providing sweeping panoramas, house 12 beautifully appointed suites, accommodating up to 29 guests. Classic Australian antiques and lavish contemporary furnishings and works of art set the tone in spacious living areas. From plush robes to soft linens, no effort is spared in accommodating guests’ every need. Beyond luxurious accommodations, the estate’s public areas feature a formal living and dining room, a billiard’s room and bar with cellar.
Meals are served in the formal dining room, at the poolside barbeque or dine under a star-studded sky in the glow of a traditional camp oven. Burrawang boasts superb cuisine, with many of the ingredients grown in-house.
At Burrawang West Station, there is no lack of activities to keep guests, young and old, on their feet. Guests can experience the cutting-edge working sheep station, spending time with the station manager and Australian cattlemen while mustering sheep on four-wheel bikes. Feeding newborn lambs in the homestead compound provides an up-close personal experience not to be forgotten. From archery to kayaking, fishing, golfing, clay pigeon shooting, tennis, swimming and a spa, adventures here abound.
Kayaking along the Yarrabandai Billabong, the private reserve is a natural haven for an array of native Australian birds and wildlife. Common sightings include kangaroos, wallabies, and mobs of emus, goanna lizards, cockatoos, kookaburras and colorful parrots. As well, the area is a birdwatcher’s paradise, where common species such as the Sacred Kingfisher and Brown Tree Creeper can be seen. Or get a first hand taste of local Aboriginal culture – learn to throw a boomerang or paint traditional symbols – these are only some of the activities on offer. The lush green wildlife and vast landscapes present superb vistas while unwinding on the verandahs with a cold drink in hand.
A sense of tranquility and relaxation overpowers you at night as you sit by the campfire enjoying stories and friends. Or stargaze through the telescope on the observation tower, where the Milky Way has never been so clear. Nature here is breathtaking under the brilliant star-studded sky reaching towards the horizon.
Beyond the excitement and beauty of Australia’s Outback, Burrawang West Station provides the ideal outback adventure in the splendor of a luxurious setting. The all-inclusive estate accords exclusive use for groups of 10 – 29 guests, making it the perfect venue for family reunions and multigenerational adventure travel. Located within a relaxing scenic drive or short flight from Sydney, this is the ultimate outback experience.
