Visitors throughout the year make their way to Hamelin Outback Station Stay in any which way they can. We've seen all kinds of different modes of transport, including some towing or bringing their own accommodation!
They arrive at our reserve with caravans, camper trailers, tents, motor homes, bikes and campervans.
Here's a glimpse of them from just the past few weeks.
- A family of 5 from Victoria have been towing their Silver Airstream Caravan, looking for the best surf breaks to use their boards. This is the first one of its kind we've seen here.
- Heiner, a 70-year-young man from Germany arrived peddalling on his pushbike. It's taken him travelling not only around Australia but the world – quite an achievement! Other travellers made him feel very welcome by sharing their meals, as he only has limited room on his bike for supplies.
- Another family of 6 from Victoria made an entrance in their massive bus, which also towed a trailer with their car on it! This enables them to explore places they wouldn't be able to take their bus into.
- Students from Edith Cowan University in Perth arrived in their bus and stopped in at Hamelin for two nights before heading north to complete their field trip. They also used the shearing shed to watch and listen to a lecture from a representative from Rangelands WA and our own Elisabeth McLellan.
- A family of two brothers and their sister from Queensland (all in their 70s) are travelling around the country in their Kombi van. One of the brothers has owned the Kombi for many years and painted the designs on the van himself.
As the day draws to a close, it’s a time for families to gather around the warmth of the campfire and to enjoy the peacefulness and beauty of Hamelin and admire the beautiful sunsets.
