Fantastic stayed 2 nights here. Trip up to sunset hill was fabulous. We asked about firewood, if we could collect some. It wasn't a problem. Nice cosy fire at night. Bush toilets clean. Amazing hospitality thank you Sally

Stayed for 5 nights and used as a base for exploring the area. Great bush camp by the dry creek. Terrific host (Sally).

Previous reviews accurate. Great spot if you are self contained. Powered options available elsewhere on station. No more than 6 groups booked into Bills Paddock at one time, so plenty of room. Lots of options available for things to do on station and nearby. We did the Blinman Pools 1/2 day guided drive/hike. Enjoyed the look around the station and commentary that came with this. Great way to access the pools if you are not up to the full hike in from Angorichina Village but still a considerable amount of rock hopping required. Recommend Alpana Station.
