Pimpara Lake Station is a 44 000 hectare sheep and cattle property located west of the Silver City Highway, 200 kilometres north of Broken Hill. The road on which it is located also forms part of the regional touring route from Broken Hill to Cameron Corner and which follows an approximation of Sturt’s 1845 expedition known locally as Sturt’s Steps.
Since purchasing the property in 1980 the owners, Jon and Ruth Sandow, have actively engaged in sustainable water and pasture conservation practices that support livestock production and at the same time enhance habitat for wildlife, including forty man-made watering points.
Self-guided or guided property tours are designed to demonstrate these conservation activities as well as providing many opportunities for observing and photographing the wildlife and natural landscapes. Night skies are often clear and enable serious star watching and photography.
Visitor’s dogs are welcome, and we encourage interaction between visitors and our own domestic dogs, horses and often pet sheep.
Accommodation ranges from secluded campsites with plenty of space and natural shelter, (ideal for families and bird-watchers), to fully equipped self-catering shearers’ quarters for up to twelve guests (linen can be provided upon request). Homestead B and B enables closer interaction between guests and Pimpara Lake’s owners with home-style meals served in the homestead dining room.
The best time to visit is from March through to October.
