Bullara Station

Bullara Station is a working cattle property which sprawls across ¼ million acres is known as Punurrba by the local Yingarrda people, or ‘Seabreeze’, but the name Bullara derives from an early state-owned boat that sailed up the coast in the 1900s.  Over three generations the Shallcross family have farmed Merino sheep for wool production but a wild dog problem forced them to move into cattle.

Currently the family breed Droughtmaster cattle with a focus on best practice cattle husbandry, which is crucial for providing top quality and flavoursome beef.   Combined with the nature-based outback accommodation the Agritourism story has flourished. The focus is on sustainability, recycling and a quirky ‘live in our shoes’ environment.​

‘Damper John’ is a visitor who stays here for 4 or 5 months of the year and almost every evening cooks fantastic damper for all the campers around the communal campfire.
