Australia's Golden Outback 2023 Holiday Planner

Far from the roughing it, Mellenbye Station between Morawa and Yalgoo is another slice of relaxed luxury meets working life. First established in the late 1800s, it was originally a sheep station, but since Shelly Bogdan arrived at Mellenbye in October 2016, she has converted to cattle and opened up for tourism, utilising a

range of existing guest facilities and building a host of new ones. The station stay at Mellenbye offers guests everything from camping grounds through to the luxuriant Mellenbye Manor. “Most of our accommodations are pretty exceptional for this kind of area. People are quite surprised,” says Shelly.

we have a chef, everything is hosted and catered for. We’re here to look after you, but we’re also a station. So yeah, we get around in our ‘blundies’ and our work clothes, and we are in and out sometimes too. We’re here to host you and immerse you into station life. It’s authentic, and organic. “It’s giving people that real sort of outback experience.” By living alongside their guests, Frances and David are also able to share their diverse and regenerative approach to managing this country. “We’re an eco-tourism experience. We’re really focused on sustainable production, the environment, and connection to country. For us, it’s about leaving this property in a better state than it came to us in,” says Frances. “We’re working with our environment, and working to produce food in a sustainable way that doesn’t alter or destroy things, but preserves it and even improves it.”
