One of the more unique accommodation options around Western Australia is the many station stays you’ll find, offering authentic outback experiences with some of the best humans you’ll find.

And one of the best is Wooramel Riverside Retreat, a family-owned working cattle, sheep, goat and outback station stay near Carnarvon.

Covering a whopping 1430 square kilometres, including 60 kilometres of coastline frontage within the Shark Bay World Heritage area, it’s a must-visit along the Coral Coast Highway.

Among many things that make Wooramel a unique stay is their popular naturally-heated therapeutic artesian bore baths – waters from the Birdsong aquifer travel up from 240m below, before being piped into these 33-degree pools, perfect for soothing tired muscles after a day of adventuring.

Wooramel is about an hour-and-a-half south of Carnarvon, or 8.5 hours north of Perth, and it’s the perfect home base if you’re doing some Shark Bay exploring.

There’s also abundant bird and wildlife to see, private camp fires, brilliantly star-lit night skies and the on-site Upside Down Cafe, serving up coffee and baked goods in the morning along with nightly meal specials in a vibrant atmosphere.

Accommodation-wise you’ve actually got plenty to choose from, including on-site rooms, self-contained units, eco cabin tents, outcamp tents (setup for you) and a bunch of different camp sites for you to set up your own gear on, including shaded and riverside.

Wooramel Riverside Retreat is open for bookings from March 1 until November/December – head to their website for more information.
