Fantastic spot! 18kl off main road. No sign so use google maps. Start of dirt road can be a bit deceiving starts out well but with rain could be pretty boggy and muddy. Amazing example of our colonial history, all open to the public the homestead, shearing shed and grave yard of rusted old cars. A cave is further on but I didn't get to that. Photography heaven. Plenty of camp spots. Remember which road you came in on! Dogs well if you do, keep on leads at all times. Baits and dingoes. Drop toilet. No water. Bring wood for fire. Let's hope people continue to respect the privilege of having access to these places.

Almost had to ourselves. Got in at lunchtime so unhitched to visit the cave, then all the other infrastructure. Didn't find the blowhole, but a lovely late arvo walk on country. Used the shearers hut to get out of wind to cook and sit and contemplate. Great place to stop

Stayed here 14 and 15 July - rough corrugated limestone rocky road in. Exceptional homestead made from old sleepers. Unique environment. Long drop toilet near homestead has an inside and outside door latch. Wild winds during our stay led to door constantly opening and banging shut. We put a rock against door to relieve banging and any potential damage to hinge. Really, really disappointed in some visitors. Some of the historic sleepers next to the homestead have been cut into with a chain saw! Wet wipes were everywhere until I picked up bags of them - some partially buried, some just lying on the ground. In this weather, being blown everywhere. They take years to break down. PLEASE, do not use them. Carry a spade/gardening trowel and dig a proper hole if required. Use toilet paper.
