If you are looking for somewhere off the beaten track for a holiday then think about heading to Kilcowera Station which is located along the Darling Track between Hungerford and Thargomindah, Qld.
It is a 120,000 acres cattle station owned and operated by Greg and Toni Sherwin (you couldn’t ask for nicer hosts). We camped beside the Cardenyabba lagoon for 10 stunning nights (we had only planned to stay for 4 nights).
There are plenty of things to see and explore on the property which also has accommodation in the shearer’s quarters.
There is a lot of bird life to be found on Kilcowera Station. We spotted and photographed quite a few as you can see below:
We had an amazing campsite beside the lagoon.
Amazing clouds nearly every day!
What is a cattle station without cows??
During periods of heavy rainfall Kilcowera becomes home to some ancient shrimps!
And it’s really camping unless you have a campfire!
My daughter was recently married in Hawaii and while we were there we decided to go on a doors off helicopter flight over the Ohau island with Makani kai Helicopters.
Due to poor weather on the day of scheduled flight it was necessary to reschedule to another day and Makani kai Helicopters were very obliging in assisting us in rescheduling with limited time available.
The weather on the day of the rescheduled flight was great and we had a very smooth flight.
Here are a few of the images taken from the helicopter.
