Murchison, WA

Murchison, three and a half hours’ drive northeast of Geraldton, depicts the real Australian outback with open space, beautiful scenery, natural pools, historic homesteads and an abundance of wildlife.

Situated on the Murchison River, Murchison’s surrounds are mainly pastoral lands which offer the chance to experience working with sheep and cattle on the unique station stays available.

In spring, after winter’s rainfall, wildflowers including everlastings and acacias bloom.

Just a 20 minute drive to the settlement’s west are the rock formations of Errabiddy Bluff.

As well as station stay accommodation, the Murchison area offers a roadhouse, caravan park and camping options.
