All Lodges


The 12 guest rooms, designed by Sibella Court of The Society Inc, are styled to provide an inviting sanctuary, perfect after a day on the station. Each room opens out onto the shady lawns and is cool and comfortable, with a king or twin-beds, air-conditioning and modern ensuite.

Sibella credits Mother Nature for informing her design decisions including collecting, bottling and pressing natural materials from around the property - ochre, earth and clay, paperbark, eucalyptus leaves, melaleuca blossom, river mud, felted boab seeds, wild rice, kapok, native hibiscus, green ants, sands from the gorges, waterlilies, feathers, stones and rocks. These samples informed the colour palette, foundation and base materials, patterns, fabrics and materials that were used throughout the design, from colour-matched custom tiles to the tactility of soft furnishings.

There are historical cues for shapes of tables, style of beds and bathroom fittings.

The history of this large cattle station influenced the selection of foundational materials that age beautifully in a harsh climate, including leather, salvaged wood, blackened steel, brass, stone and cane. These materials reflect historical bush craft skills and traditional trades essential to homesteads and remote stations, where resourcefulness and a 'can do' attitude are necessary.

Bullo supports Australian companies that produce ethical and sustainable products.  The hand soap is handmade by Wola/Gija woman, Bec Sampi, who founded Garingbaar Native Bush Botanicals, based in Kununurra. The soap is loaded with lush coconut oil, along with the key botanical goolum (bush lavender) which is collected by hand on Country. 100% Aboriginal owned and based in Alice Springs, Yaye uses native bush medicine plants in its Native Silky Lemongrass and Lime shampoo and conditioner. The shower and conditioner dispensers have been custom designed by ceramicist, Jolene Hewison from River Ceramics. They reflect the rivers, stones and grasses of Bullo.

In the comfortable communal area guests can help themselves to freshly baked goodies and enjoy a drink with fellow travellers. The breezeway is decorated with commissioned artworks including natural pieces by Angela McNay, which are a direct use of materials found on the property. Dried Screwpine (pandandus) leaves and seeds, charred sticks, palm fronds, husks and stems, leaves, bark and woven wires have been reimagined into artworks that are displayed throughout the breezeway and rooms. Included in the artworks is a Wyarra ancestor spirit from Arnhem Land that resides in the bush. He will protect and guide people who may lose their way. There’s also a pair of Wyarra ancestors that are dreamings of the stingray. These are sure to protect the guests that respect the land and they are the bringers of abundance and the bounties of water. They are all made from paperbark, a local resource, and made by the artist Lena Yarinkura.


The Rainbow Bee-Eater is a photograph by acclaimed Australian contemporary artist, Lelia Jeffreys, and the paintings in the rooms are by Sydney artist, Belynda Henry.

Days here are spent exploring the remote and stunning landscapes and waterfalls, and discovering the exhilarating life of a working cattle station.
