Eco-friendly Burraburoon Station
Burraburoon Farmstay is situated on the Long Paddock Touring Route – 12 kms east of historic Royal Mail Hotel at Booroorban.
Some 20 years ago we made the decision to switch to Dorper sheep in order to turn our land into an eco-friendly property and, where possible, organic. Burraburoon is a working sheep station, on the edge of the outback, in the Riverina. The homestead and Bob’s Bend are on the banks of a large lake with extensive gardens.
A feature of our farmstay operation is the man-made lake, dug by Ken’s father to provide a swimming pool for the former Booroorban School. We welcome all forms of passive recreation around the lake and canoes for our guests to use.
There is an unintentional touch of African flavour at our bushcamp with its sheltered BBQ area and open air kitchen and dining area adjoining the cantilever deck over the water. Those who like to be part of nature will enjoy our outside shower.
Sleeps 5 in two rooms and has a small ensuite in the former guard’s compartment.
Two spacious refurbished caravans with a Queen size bed.
Glamp it up with our two glamping tents which include very comfortable beds.
Six camping sites available on the edge of the lake. Each site has its own wood fired BBQ area with full use of all facilities.
Things to do
- Dare to switch off from social media, the phone and television and listen to the silence.
- Enjoy the sound of birds in the mornings or watch a kangaroo graze in the distance while you shower.
- Sleep under a blanket of stars at night.
- Enjoy the lake – swimming, canoeing or just take in the serenity from your comfortable chair on the deck.
- Go for long walks or arrange a farm tour
- Experience our camp oven meals under the stars.
