Tonight we have exclusive use of an Outback Sheep Station shearers quarters; really rustic and great fun – take a ride in the back of a ute to a private beach for sunset, toast marshmallows on the campfire, sit and soak up the ambiance of the Outback, test your astronomy skills at our million-star accommodation, and if you like, you can take your bed outside and fall asleep to the sight of the milky-way and the sounds of the Outback.
