At the GPS co-ordinates, follow the dirt road in for a few kilometres until you reach the station.  

Initially a cattle station Lake Mason is a 149,557ha reserve situated 50km north of Sandstone. Land systems are characterised by a gently undulating landscape dominated by a salt lake sytem in the centre with several breakaways and low hills to the west and north.

Lake Mason, a remote former pastoral station that is now a proposed conservation park, is now used for four-wheel driving, camping, fossicking and birdwatching.



Visitors can camp at the complex for the former station homestead, but no amenities are provided so visitors must be fully self sufficient and carry in all supplies including water.
