Overview

After a day's walking in the Carnarvon Gorge, nothing beats sitting back with wine or beer in hand and experiencing a Bandana Station Sunset. Relax as your hosts Bruce and Olivia take you back in time to the early pioneering days and bring you up to date with modern cattle grazing practices. Be fascinated with the story of the 'Kenniff Brothers', the last of Australia's Bush Rangers who made the Carnarvon's their home. The backdrop to this experience is utterly breathtaking, the cliffs truly the showcase. Reflect upon the timelessness of the ranges whilst splashes of colour illuminate 30km of escarpment. Listening to instrumental guitar and original music by Bruce, this encounter is enhanced by the mug of hot billy tea and damper to conclude the evening.

Since they opened their caravan park this is no longer run. I wish they would fix up all of their internet links.

This was a very enjoyable experience. Bruce and Olivia do an amazing job, giving people an outback feel to the country. If in Carnarvon it's a must do.
