We are already over half-way through the visiting season here at Hamelin Outback Station Stay and the number of visitors has now increased to 3,372.
We had a very busy period at the end of June with three local school groups staying with us for a few days. While here they enjoyed sitting around the campfire toasting marshmallows before heading to their swags to sleep under the stars, with some even staying in the shearing shed. One group even bought their own school bus and enjoyed at trip to Monkey Mia, Shell Beach and the Stromatolites. All said they had an enjoyable time and hope to visit Hamelin Outback Station Stay again.
The busiest period of the year – the July school holidays – quickly followed and visitors to Hamelin Outback Station Stay varied from couples and families travelling from other states and countries to people who live in Western Australia getting away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Many visitors comment on how peaceful it is here and how they love to admire the beautiful sunsets that we're lucky to see every day.
Our new interpretive signs have been erected on some of the buildings around Hamelin Outback Station Stay for all visitors to read. These story boards give some background about Bush Heritage Australia, where our reserves are located and what Bush Heritage is doing to protect our environment. The signs also highlight some of the flora and fauna that can be seen on Hamelin Reserve.
As usual there's plenty of birdlife flying around and these two cuties – a Red-capped Robine and Australasian Pipit – stayed still long enough for us to capture a photo of them.
Come and see all these things for yourself when you visit Hamelin Outback Station Stay.
