Alternatively, guests can enjoy the new six bedroom lodge accommodating up to twelve guests or our Homestead VIP suite.

Pool, tennis court, croquet and pushbikes. The artistically designed gardens are often described by guests as ‘an oasis in the desert’ and a massive contrast to the surrounding landscape….Julie's labour of love in such a harsh environment.

Lay back and appreciate the outback tranquility but also lots to do too. Bush walking under vast outback skies, farm tours, paddock picnics, camp fires, star gazing under the clear outback skies, bird watching & observing native wildlife in our 400ha ancient dry box swamp.

Bruce is passionate about his merino flock, agriculture and aviation. Corynnia Station produces irrigated crops including cotton, rice and sheep feed. A farm tour with Bruce (subject to availability depending on the farm program) is always of great interest to our guests.

The fashion industry was Julie’s domain for thirty years. Her creativity and sense of style is reflected in the gardens and buildings in which her paintings are displayed.
