Trilby Station is a working sheep station around 25kms from the township of Louth in Outback NSW. With beautiful private campsites on the Darling River, you will want to stay for a month!
Little bit of history:
Once a part of the legendary million acre Dunlop, first in the world to complete a sheep shearing by mechanical means in 1888, Trilby Station is 320,000 acres these days, running approx 24,000 Merino sheep and an extensive goat enterprise. The Murray family trace their settlement on the Darling River near Louth back six generations to 1860 when Andrew Murray, from County Galway, Ireland, purchased 60 acres of land for 60 pounds sterling.; building the Shamrock Inn.
We stayed at Trilby Station for a week and loved every minute – we will definitely be back! Upon arrival you are provided with a “Mud Map” of the station. There is approximately 90kms of self guided tracks around the station which kept us more than amused! Dams are dotted around the station and you can try your hand at catching some yabbies – we did get a few, not a meal, but a few…
