Where I stayed
Bullara Station

Friday, April 22, 2011

After leaving Carnarvon we made our way to Coral Bay. It was very hot so into the bathers and off for a swim in the crystal clear waters at the southern end of the Ningaloo Reef. After being in the water for a couple of hours, with fish swimming around our feet, we headed off to our stay at Bullara Station which is situated 65kms north of Coral Bay and 87kms south of Exmouth. 
When we arrived at the homestead to book in I thought the Rhodesian ridgeback dog (think that is what it is called) was going to eat me alive. She came up to me barking, I was getting along staring straight ahead, saying "sit down, sit down" trying to sound harsh but waiting to feel the pain. "Tilda" turned out to be a beautiful dog who was just got a bit excited when people arrived.
The homestead is owned by the Shallcross family and Tim and Edwina, a lovely couple with 3 very young children made us feel very welcome. 
Our site was a LITTLE different from the site at Carnarvon with rocks and red sand replacing the green grass. The shower was "alfresco" with walls but no roof which you shared with frogs and locusts. It was actually fantastic, showering out under the stars! Not too good when you were sitting on the toilet and a locust jumps on your back though, causes a few things to go wrong!!
The next morning we could hear a noise outside our bedroom and discovered half a dozen or so sheep going for their morning walk right around the van. 
We spent the next day in Exmouth and the Ningaloo Marine Park with our biggest regret that we had not bought snorkels with us to check out the Ningaloo Reef.
After a great day at Exmouth it was back to the station for another relaxing evening.  
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Bullara Station and would certainly recommend it.
