Wirrealpa Station

Accommodation Information

Wirrealpa Station is a 1,650 square kilometre sheep and cattle station situated on the east side of the Flinders Ranges, on the main Wilpena to Arkaroola Road, 35 kilometres east of Blinman. It is a family owned property, with our children being fifth generation in the area.

The Shearers Quarters were built in 1860 using local stone and they still retain their authentic charm, with a wood stove (gas stove too) in the kitchen and dining tables in the adjoining dining room. There are nine separate bedrooms sleeping up to 21 people, one bedroom has a double bed, while all other beds are single. The Quarters are powered by our integrated solar/generator system and all bedrooms have fans. Bathroom facilities are shared and the communal kitchen and dining facilities are fully self contained and include barbecue facilities.

One of Wirrealpa's most unique attractions is the vast look of the outback plains from the Flinders Ranges. Its location creates a diverse range of flora and fauna common to both hills and plains. It has several world class fossil locations, the Grindstone Range and also some Aboriginal carvings. It has been involved over many years with Landcare projects and there are several private tracks and walks for guests to experience including Dawson Hill in the Grindstone, Lizard Rock, Ten Mile Creek, Cave F1, The Balcoracana and Red Hill. 

Wirrealpa is centrally located within half an hour of some of the areas well known attractions including Chambers Gorge, Wilkawillina Gorge, Blinman and Parachilna Gorge.
