Bullo River Station - Northern Territory

Bullo River Station, formerly owned by famous author and T.V personality Sarah Henderson, and her daughter Marlee and Marlee’s husband Franz. Since 2015, Bullo River Station has been under new ownership. The Farris and McCleary families envisage a long future with the historic property and are dedicated to building the property up to increase its exclusivity. 

Accessible most of the year around by a private charter flight from either Darwin or Kununurra, Bullo River Station is situated in the heart of the Eastern Kimberley Range.

This working cattle station covers an area of some 1200 square miles or ½ a million acres. The Bullo River runs completely through the property eventually meandering its way into the mighty Victoria River which makes for a spectacular boundary to this huge property.

The Bullo and Victoria rivers are very remote, offering clients a very unique, diverse and beautiful fishing experience. The amazing freshwater gorges are home to:  Barramundi,  Saratoga and Sooty Grunter. While the tidal rivers have large populations of Barramundi, Mangrove Jacks, Threadfin Salmon and Jewfish

The Bullo River Station is completely isolated from road transport for the months between November and May, depending on the extent of the wet season, but remains accessible to a limited but fortunate few clients by air.

Services & Facilities

The Bullo River Homestead is nothing short of magnificent! Covering almost an acre of ground, the homestead has been built mainly from stone with huge open living areas being completely fan cooled to cope with the normal "hot" conditions that go with living in the Kimberley's. Guests are invited to eat in the extensive dining room each morning and evening in complete comfort.

A newly constructed "motel style lodge" has been built alongside the homestead which comfortably sleeps 12 guests on a twin share basis. All the rooms have en-suites and are air- conditioned.

Besides the magnificent fishing that Bullo has to offer, other activities at the station are numerous. Clients can experience such activities as bull catching, observing helicopter mustering, crocodile catching, hunting buffalo and wild pigs, along with helicopter fishing for those more adventurous clients wanting to fish the more remote regions.

Ecologically this property is not only beautiful, but also quite unique. It is remote, diverse, and has everything from fresh water gorges to huge tidal rivers and abundant wild life.

Boats:- There is 1 standard top end boats available for fishing which can comfortably fish up to 3 guests per boat with the guide.
