Trilby Station

Private Campground - New South Wales


Take a break... stay a while... we want you to experience what is our backyard. Recapture the spirit of wide, open spaces as you take a peek at our 320,000 acre station with a 'Mud Map' in your hand ... throw a line in and fish for Cod or Yellow-belly ... boil your yabbies on an open fire and eat them fresh ... grab a Trilby Station bird list, enjoying walking tracks along the river and billabong while observing the 135 identified species on the bird list...walk with the wildlife...smell the bush...canoe the majestic Darling River and billabongs.

Trilby Station offers outback country hospitality and riverside accommodation in the fully renovated Stockman's Cottages and the new Shearer's Bunkhouse. Or you may choose to avail yourself of the Powered Caravan Sites and secluded river Campsites dotted among age old river gums on the banks of the Darling River.

Guests can self cater or enjoy a range of delicious Australian country-style meals such as Liz's farmyard breakfasts, stockman's lunches (often served on the banks of the river or out in the paddocks where Gary is working) and two or three course dinners served to your accommodation.

Trilby Station, with a total of 13 bedrooms (26 beds) is ideal for groups, small coach groups or as a conference venue with a difference. Liz enjoys providing morning/afternoon teas and/or lunch and a walking tour to large groups looking for a short break in their journey.

For those doing a road trip or travelling by caravan, we know that you like to just wander and be foot loose and fancy free. However, to avoid disappointment, we suggest you give us a call on 02 6874 7420 (between 8am and 6pm), send a text message to 0419 447 938 or use the contact form a day or two before your arrival in our area. This way we can save you unnecessary driving time by confirming we've got a spot for you.  They also have non-potable water.

Please note, we do have Telstra Next G mobile phone coverage at Trilby Station, enabling visitors to easily keep in touch with family and friends. Wireless internet can be accessed on your laptop with the use of a Telstra Wireless USB modem.

Two hours drive from Cobar (160km), one and a half hours from Bourke (125Km), two and a half hours from Wilcannia (200km) – all unsealed roads – and 400km from Broken Hill on the Darling River Run. 4WD isn't necessary but recommendeddue to the added ground clearance. Please check road conditions if there has been rain in the area. Unsealed roads are closed in the event of rain.

PLEASE DON'T RELY ON GOOGLE MAPS AND YOUR GPS IN THE OUTBACK,unless you will enjoy being 'led up the garden path' on very indirect routes. Look at a road map!!  Better yet....check out their map on their website.

Getting to Trilby Station from either Wilcannia (south-west) or Louth (north east) is along the Darling River with the choice of going along the western or eastern side of the river.  These roads are both similar, though some maps only show the green road along the river (on the eastern side).We are located on the western side of the river between Louth and Tilpa, so the blue road below.
