ARTESIAN BORE HOT BATHS

One of the highlights at Wooramel River Retreat is definitely experiencing the naturally heated therapeutic artesian bore baths.

Waters from the Birdrong aquifer travel from a depth 240m below the ground to the surface under its own pressure and is then piped into free flowing pools for you to sit down and relax.

The water is approximately 33 degrees with a high mineral content that is reputed to have soothing effects on tired muscles.

 

EXPLORING HISTORICAL TIP

One person's trash is another person's treasure or so the saying goes. In the bush it was and often still is impossible to throw anything away, as you just don't  know when it may come in handy. The early pastoralists simply choose a section of land not too far from the homestead and dumped everything they no longer needed.

Explore through the discarded detritus of 4 generations - from wool carts to pumps, bottles to cars and washing machines. 

Sturdy shoes and adult supervision are a must. The only thing we ask: please do not remove any of our treasures, they are part our history.

 

 

MONDAY/WEDNESDAY  DINNERS
RIVER WALKING TRAIL

Spend a morning wandering along the river bank, meandering through the gum trees, listening to the sounds of nature and watching the wildlife and landscape unfold. The Wooramel River walk is around 5 kms on a dirt track with sandy patches.

Please remember to take water and to slip slop & slap as even in winter the sun can be warm in the Coral Coast.

SELF- DRIVE TOUR

Get a taste of station life on our 70km self  drive  4WD  Station Tour.  The track takes you out to the coastline where you can see the mouth of the river  our 100 year old shearing shed than crosses over the highway and heads east along a windmill track before meandering back to the homestead along the river. Pack a picnic and enjoy a day in the bush.

BIRD WATCHING

The wildlife is abundant and bird watchers in particular will appreciate the variety of species of birds that are either permanent residents or visitors to the station.  Grab your binoculars, and between dusk and dawn you will see some of the Gascoyne's most spectacular birds.
