After a very dry start to the season we had some much needed rain in late May and early June (63 mm in one night) which has enhanced the beautiful colours on the property and filled our water tanks.

We've not seen so much rain for quite some time and our desert garden resembled a lake for a few hours.   More rain is forecast for the coming months, which will enable the magnificent wildflowers to bloom, turning the landscape into a sea of colours.

As the weather becomes cooler in the south of the state, we're seeing more travellers making their way north and stopping at Hamelin to break their journey. Former CEO of Bush Heritage Australia, Doug Humann, and his lovely wife Jill, called in to Hamelin for a visit and stayed with us for a few days.

Doug was the very first CEO of Bush Heritage Australia and held this position for 14 years, working very hard during those years in building the organisation. He's now stepped down from his position of CEO to persue other ventures.

Hamelin Station was previously a working sheep station and over the years many shearers lived and worked on the property. The shearers slept in their own quarters, which have now been transformed into 8 rooms for guests and they had their own dining room, which has also been extensively renovated for guests.

Over the years many relics of the past have been left lying in the paddocks surrounding the buildings. My sculpture pieces in the pictures are inspired by history and the natural environment here at Hamelin Reserve.

If you haven't already visited Hamelin Outback Station Stay, why not put it on your list of places to visit in this wonderful country of ours – you won’t be disappointed!
