Lake Paika, Outback NSW
Take a step back in time, unwind, relax and enjoy unique accommodation in the restored self-contained workmans' quarters. Experience this natural wetland, reinstated in 2012, after more than 100 years of being stranded from its lifeline, the Murrumbidgee River.
Lake Paika Station is one of the oldest properties in the area. The first European squatter was George Hobler in 1846. Burke & Wills also camped in the Paika stables.
In 1899, Lake Paika & Paika Creek became the site of Australia’s first environmental movement to protect a wetland.
