With its unique history, beautiful grounds and activities for guests, Bungaree Station offers guests much more than just a bed for the night.
Our guests are welcome to enjoy the surrounds, whether its doing a self guided tour around the station complex (complementary for guests, normally $15 for day visitors), following the scenic walking trail through the paddocks, or using our swimming pool in Summer. In winter, small bonfires can also be arranged, perfect for toasting marsmellows or sipping a local fortified wine under the stars.
Children may also enjoy coming to feed the pet animals with us in the mornings – this takes about an hour, normally from 9am, although this may vary with the seasons. Many children also bring their bicycles to cycle around the station complex.
By prior arrangement, other activities are available for groups including guided tours of the station complex and clay target shooting.
The accommodation buildings are well suited for relaxed meals, equipped with modern kitchens as well as BBQs outside. Breakfast provisions (including eggs, bacon, juice, cereal etc) are left in the accommodation for guests to prepare at their leisure. If you would like to “dine in” without the hassle of food preparation, by prior arrangement, we can deliver BBQ packs, curries and roast dinners to your accommodation – perfect for quiet nights in after a busy day of wine tasting in the Clare Valley.
While guests are welcome to spend their time relaxing at Bungaree Station, there are many local attractions of the Clare Valley to be explored, from the many wineries and breweries, through to the museums and art galleries. Key historic attractions to visit include Martindale Hall at Mintaro and the many heritage and mining sites at Burra, while children may enjoy visiting the hedge maze at Mintaro or perhaps playing mini golf at Auburn.
For those feeling energetic, the Riesling Trail is a well renowned cycling/walking trail, while Spring Gully Conservation Park and the Heyson and Mawson trails are great alternatives for hikers. Guests with more time to explore could also venture into the Southern Flinders Ranges, including Alligator Gorge at Mt Remarkable National Park.
Restaurants, cafes and pubs throughout the region have a focus on local and seasonal produce and are perfect settings for long lunches or light platters.
The Clare Valley is a vibrant region, with a range of events throughout the year, from local markets, concerts and art exhibitions through to the Clare Gourmet Weekend and Clare Easter Races. For further information on local attractions and events, visit the Clare Valley website.
