Indee Station

Located around 65km south of Port Hedland off the Great Northern Highway, Indee Station is one of those places where you feel right at home within minutes of your arrival. Owned and operated by Colin and Betty Brierly, this 400,000-acre cattle station has a range of cottages and cabins, some with ensuites, others with shared facilities, and nearby are a number of well spread out unpowered campsites, where generators are allowed.

Here you’ll find genuine hospitality, including a complimentary spread of nibblies each afternoon at the homestead for happy hour. Guests are invited to bring their own drinks and take the opportunity to chat to the owners, station workers and fellow travellers. Evening meals are available or there are free barbeque and communal kitchen facilities. Dogs are allowed but must be kept on a lead.

As well as having the option of taking in some of the normal station activities, guests are invited to head out on the well-marked station trail (suitable to 2WD vehicles) and with a mud map supplied by your hosts, check out local sights including an air crash memorial, a walking trail along the river bank and the wonderful Red Rock, a huge granite outcrop with a series of permanent fresh water pools and a range of Aboriginal rock art. The petroglyphs here are found both around the base of the rock and on the rocky slopes where an estimated 100 or more ancient engravings are scattered across this large colourful outcrop.

Around your campsite near the homestead the birdlife is vibrant and you’ll also be joined by station chickens, geese and even a few cattle. In late winter and early spring, the Indee Station floral emblem, the colourful Sturts Desert Pea, can be seen everywhere.

*** please check ahead, not open for stays when mustering.
