Cheela Plains Station

Farm Stay - Western Australia


Cheela Plains is located 130kms (via gravel) west of Tom Price and 320kms northeast of Exmouth on the Nanutarra-Munjina Road (Hwy 136).  The Station Campground is situated 1km off the main highway and is accessible by 2 wheel drive car. On a station the size of Cheela Plains there are plenty of amazing locations to explore.  Our self-guided walks and trails make for adventure filled days.  Stay a little longer and explore them all. The vastly arid Pilbara region is home to small mammals, reptiles and birds.  Over a vast station like Cheela, native animals are not always immediately visible, but if you’re lucky,  the short scenic drive into the Station Stay could be interrupted by a Red or Grey plains kangaroo bounding across the road in front of you or a circling raptor keenly watching your every move.

Our Red Plains Campground is located at the station stay, just 1km off the main highway and is a popular stop with travellers on the journey between Ningaloo Reef and Karijini National Park. The campground features a large, grassed oval and shady snakewood & eucalyptus trees, making the perfect place to simply sit, relax and soak up the epic Pilbara landscape.  Here you will find our large firepit and you are welcome to cook dinner or breakfast over the smouldering Snakewood coals, or simply have a yarn with fellow travellers over a cold drink or two.
