About Meeline

We are sorry, no further bookings can be made for Meeline Station during our open months of July and August.

Please direct enquiries to karenmorrisseymeeline@gmail.com

A much loved “back to basics” property, Meeline is located in the heart of the Murchison Region of Western Australia, covering a vast 427,880 acres of spectacular and well preserved Australian Outback – with a history to match!

  • Homestead (5BR) and rustic Writers’ Cottage (3BR) Shearers’ Quarters overflow for large groups (8 rooms)
  • Astro Pad for groups
  • Walk, cycle and drive trails
  • Gallery, Museum and Art Workshop area
  • Windmill ‘n Cartwheels outdoor dining venue
  • Sites illustrated in “The Night Emus Fly”, an Outback Christmas book for children
  • Sorry, no pets. No eftpos.

Adrian and Karen Morrissey look forward to welcoming you and your special interest group to experience unique Meeline country and outback  venues,  for an authentic Australian outback experience  – Meeline style.

Drought prone, the arid climate offers a big advantage to visitors…incredible night skies.  Visitors from all around the world visit Meeline,  drawn by the dark skies,  which are perfect for astronomy and astrophotography.

In an ancient landscape  –  diverse land systems from the “high” sand plain country,  to low lying lakes –  Meeline country is particularly unique. Adrian and Karen work to ensure  the protection and preservation of plant and native animal species, by rebuilding biodiversity through environmental restoration. Thousands of fine merino wool sheep and goats have been removed during the past twelve years of drought, preserving the sparse and fragile vegetation. Recent rains are beginning to revive and regenerate the country.

Pioneered by a camel teamster before being sold to Murchison pioneering family, the  Morrisseys eighty years ago, Meeline was earlier traversed by Indigenous people over eons of time. The rich cultural heritage of Meeline is at risk of being lost without the concerted efforts of Adrian and Karen to preserve and share  the traditions, historic infrastructure and the stories.  We would love you and your group of guests to join us and discover why we believe it is a privilege to be in and surrounded by this extraordinarily beautiful but harsh outback region of Australia.

We endeavour to support your own particular interests while you are with us. Karen provides additional assistance, developing itineraries for on station experiences, and if required, a connection to the local community of Mt Magnet. We encourage Indigenous tourism through the local community when possible.

Edge of the Desert Gallery also provides an  outdoor  art workshop venue – and is hoped to inspire other artists to spend time in this place and be inspired to create their own conceptions of the desert.  (See Activities).

Bookings  in advance  are essential and we will always do our very best to accommodate any special requirements that you might have, although we know you will understand that this may not always be possible – this is the real outback!

We hope you will enjoy taking time on Meeline Station –  a dynamic peaceful part of Australia .

Rains can close the main access road at short notice  – please confirm the road is open before departure.
