Huge cattle station on the Gulf of Carpentaria near the Queensland border.
It would be hard to imagine a place in the Northern Territory where the elusive 'spirit of the Territory' is more persuasively captured than Wollogorang Station. This is outback Australia, with all its rough edges showing, at its most authentic.
The sheer details of the station are daunting. Located 266 km from Borroloola (all of which is dirt road and which is impassible in 'the wet') and 656 km from the Stuart Highway, Wollogorang is a vast holding of 2750 sq. miles (they still talk in miles out there) or 1.76 million acres. It has 50 miles (80 km) of frontage onto the Gulf of Carpentaria and lies across the Queensland–Northern Territory border.
Accommodation and Eating
Wollogorang Station offers very basic accommodation (share facilities with the station workers and have the lights go out at 9 pm when the generator is turned off), meals, caravan and camping facilities. Telephone: (08) 8975 9944
