For those who want to find out what it's like
to live like a local in the Outback, station
stays are the most relaxing way to do it.
Imagine the noise and bustle of a working
station with a backdrop of ancient mountain
ranges, and a glass of South Australian
wine waiting for guests on the homestead's
shady verandah. This is what station life
is all about. In the Flinders Ranges the
stations are mostly sheep properties and
generally smaller than Outback stations
further north. Outback stations run over vast
areas of land and hold cattle for some of
Australia's big outback names, like Kidman
and Co. Properties vary in size and character.
Accommodation styles range from modest
shearers' quarters to elegant homesteads,
where there is self-catering or guests can
join the host family for meals. While many of
the stations mentioned are from the Flinders
Ranges and Outback region there are station
experiences available in other regions of
South Australia too.
Angorichina is a sheep station located
10 kilometres east of Blinman in South
Australia's Outback (see page 103).

a self-contained homestead.
