Gum Creek Station Shearers Quarters, Blinman

Gum Creek Station’s Shearer’s Quarters are situated on a working sheep station 480 kilometres north of Adelaide, centrally located in the heart of the Flinders Ranges. Gum Creek Station joins the Flinders Ranges National Park and is within easy reach of many local attractions, including the magnificent Brachina and Bunyeroo gorges and sections of the Heysen Trail, which traverses the property. The area provides an excellent example of the amazing range of landform, vegetation and colour that the Flinders Ranges can provide. The Quarters are nestled against the River Red Gum lined Wockerawirra Creek at the station homestead. Recently upgraded for group or family accommodation, the building overlooks the rocky creek bed and incorporates a large sheltered deck, lawn and barbecue area which provide a great outdoor living environment in the mild spring and autumn weather. Sleeping is mainly twin share with seven bedrooms opening out onto a verandah which circles the building. There are five rooms each with two single beds and two rooms each with two double bunks providing total sleeping capacity of 18. Linen is available on request. The kitchen is fully self contained with a large new gas stove and two refrigerators. Leading from the kitchen is a spacious dining room/living room complete with slow combustion wood heater and ceiling insulation, ensuring a cosy environment during winter. This area provides ample room for dining and group activities for a sizeable group of people. Power for the building is a 24 hours 240 volt service, which is provided by the station’s new solar power system. For large groups, some additional sleeping accommodation is available in the adjacent and recently constructed woolshed. The woolshed has self contained shower and toilet facilities and can sleep an additional eight to ten people. Hosts Bill and Jane provide all visitors with any help they need in planning their activities in the local area, including advice about bush walks, four wheel drive vehicle tracks and scenic areas.
