From our cliff top spot we may see below us lots of wildlife including sharks. Travelling ever northwards you can see why the locals call this area Big Sky Country, also home to the second longest straight road in Australia. 

Outback sheep station 

Tonight we have exclusive use of an Outback Sheep Station shearers quarters; really rustic and great fun – take a ride in the back of a ute to a private beach for sunset, toast marshmallows on the camp fire, sit and soak up the ambience of the Outback, test your astronomy skills at our million-star accommodation, and if you like, you can take your bed outside and fall asleep to the sight of the milky-way and the sounds of the Outback.  Sheep Station shearers quarters, twin share (no upgrade available).
