Lunch will be at a secluded spot along the way under a shady Coolabah tree that the late Banjo Patterson made famous in his poetry. Enjoy the adrenalin rush of sand boarding and sledding down the massive natural sand dunes. Sit around the campfire and take the unique opportunity to master the ancient Aboriginal art of playing the didgeridoo, watch the star filled skies or have a sing along.

Stroll along the banks of the Warrego River on the “Wallaby Walk” so keep your eyes open and be quiet so you can spot one of these cute little fellas often seen at the water’s edge. Act out your “Indiana Jones” fantasy and navigate your way across the 70m swinging footbridge, never before open to the public. Arriving at the homestead, have morning tea and relish in the friendly country hospitality offered by station owners Chris and Mike Webster.
