Ellenbrae Station is predominantly a cattle station, though you won’t see any of the operations when you visit their homestead. The highlight for most visitors are the home-made scones with cream and jam that are served on the green lawns or the roofed veranda from where you can watch the well visited bird feeders. Besides fishing and swimming in the nearby river one can stay at one of the two shady campgrounds or in some of the homestead stockmen’s cabins. The Ringer’s campground is adjacent to the swimming hole and has a large communal cooking area, whereas Jackaroo’s camp site offers a more secluded and natural bush environment with BBQs. The cabins are powerless except for the light, and offer a BBQ area and outdoor camping kitchen as well as communal ablution blocks. All facilities are basic, rustic and unusual, like the so called “donkey” water heater at the campgrounds that require you to light some wood before you can have a hot shower.
