Nogo Station Experience

Live the real outback as you explore this historic working station.

The heart of outback life is the station. It’s at Nogo Station that the Kinnon family really share their world. From the merino story in the historic shearing sheds to the cattle and camels on the amazing station safari, you’ll see it all through the eyes of your Kinnon family host – Richard, Jeremy or Lane. 

They’ll draw you in with tales of the pioneers and of their own family’s struggle through drought – as well as with the quirky humour that has made them a favourite with visitors. 

In the historic shearing sheds, you’ll meet the merinos and marvel as the wool story unfolds. Then experience a station safari by open-top double-decker with a spectacular view of the vast plains where wedge-tailed eagles fly and local wildlife mingles with iconic cattle breeds, stock-horses and feral animals like desert camels, wild donkeys, pigs and more. 

You’ll visit a recreation of Captain’s Starlight’s camp and the ruins of his stockyards, which have been here at Nogo Station for over a century. This is where his incredible story came to life. Relax with smoko under the gum trees (with billy tea of course) while the Kinnons tell you more.

You’ll laugh. You’ll be amazed. You’ll be inspired. You’ll leave with a deeper connection to the true pioneering spirit of Australia.

The Nogo Station Experience departs from Longreach on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays at 7.45am. Booking essential. Please let us know when you book if you have any special dietary requirements.
