Self Guided Tour - Bungaree Station
Established in 1841, this iconic property became the headquarters of one of Australia’s most successful sheep flocks, at a time when the country was said to ride “on the sheep’s back”. Bungaree became a small village with its beautiful sandstone Woolshed, Shearers Quarters, Stableyard, Station Store, Managers House, staff cottages and even the District Council Chambers and a Church. It is still a working farm, run by the 4th, 5th and 6th generations of the Hawker family today.
