Description

'In the 1880s Billy Benstead chose this site to set up a homestead in what was to be a 51,800km² station operated by the Barrow Creek Pastoral Company. You can visit the homestead ruins or even camp there under the stars in the bush campsites. The reserve also offers bushwalking, photography opportunities and it is an important site of European settler history.' There are some waterholes good for swimming. Note that the are is sacred to the locals. It is important that you arrange to get permission to travel across Aileron Station from the APH Station Manager. I found these folk friendly and happy to give permission to cross the station land. You will need to complete their Biosecurity form and return it to them. This took me all of 24 hours to complete. The Station will also provide a map on how to get there. There are no facilities and you will need to be totally self sufficient. Access is by 4WD only. Take all your rubbish out.
