Welcome to Corynnia Station!

host

Proud recipient of the 2015 and 2016 Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence Award with five star guest ratings, Julie and Bruce Armstrong warmly welcome guests to their busy working station growing cotton, grains and merino sheep utilising the latest, innovative technology.

Corynnia Station is situated on the edge of the Great Aussie Outback and a fantastic halfway stop between Sydney and Adelaide being only a little off three main highways.

Accommodation is for up to twenty-two guests in air-conditioned comfort with five star bedding. There are two authentic, stylishly decorated 1940's cottages or the newly opened VIP Homestead Suite all set within the glorious, artistically designed homestead garden oasis, designed and developed by Julie as a labour of love to create a haven for their family within a very harsh environment. Groups of up to twelve can share our new six bedroom lodge which can also be booked room by room by the traveller looking for a budget option.

No camping or caravan facilities.

Welcome

Pool, tennis court, pushbikes, boule, hosted or self drive farm tours, friendly animals including our orphan roo - Marcie and star gazing under clear outback skies. Camp fires and paddock picnics, observing native wildlife, bird watching and bush walks through our 1000 acre ancient box dry swamp during the cooler months or lay back and appreciate the outback tranquility. Also lots of interest to see and do within one hours drive. A minimum two night stay is firmly recommended by most of our guests.

Bruce is passionate about his merino flock, agriculture and aviation. The fashion industry was Julie’s domain for thirty years. Her creativity and sense of style is reflected in the gardens, buildings and accommodation in which her paintings are also displayed.
