SSAA OR HUNTING CLUB MEMBERSHIP REQUIRED BY ALL HUNTERS
We are a small property which puts some people off but one of our boundaries is the Balonne River which provides good camping.
People are also welcome to camp in the shearing shed. We also have accommodation if people don't want to camp.
As with a lot of areas in Qld and most of NSW, we are in a roaring drought so a distraction of talking to visitors and an alternative source of income is a great relief.
People are welcome to bring dogs as long as they are under control and tied up when not in use.
People are also welcome to bring bikes as long as they don't chase stock.
