These majestic birds of prey have their trained eyes on us, and we have our eyes on them. Beautiful, aren't they? Spotted and photographed from the deck of our Thomson Belle Paddlewheeler as we cruised down the Thomson River.

Meet Jonesy, our talented balladeer. Come along on our Starlight's Cruise Experience. We'll immerse you in outback life and introduce you to genuine outback characters. Enjoy a heartfelt bush ballad or two around the campfire with billy-tea, damper and golden syrup. An Outback Pioneers experience not to be missed.

Looking a little like 'Out of Africa', this is the stunning vista Genesis Christian College students enjoyed last night. We were delighted to introduce 84 students and teachers to our 'Bush by Night Experience' at Nogo Station. Animal spotting, story-telling around the campfire, and stargazing is an experience many of these youngsters won't forget for a little while. Thanks for coming kids 🙂

Good morning Nogo! It is a refreshing 8°C out on the station this morning. We're hoping to spot plenty of local wildlife out on the station today 🙂
