A slice of country life and 65,000 hectares
You’re welcome in the schoolroom at Pincally Station, where the governess works with sisters Bella, Lucy and Millie (aged nine, seven and five years) in their purpose-built demountable classroom. You might even catch one of them doing a School of the Air lesson via computer.
Pincally Station is a working cattle and sheep property 70km south of Milparinka in Corner Country, NSW. Bordered by Mt Arrowsmith ranges, the 65,000 hectare property was first settled in the early 1900s, and is now owned by Matt and Zanna Gale, who welcome guests looking for a slice of country life.
There are two queen size guest rooms in the main homestead, parts of which are more than 100 years old. Tastefully decorated in authentic country style shabby chic, the home is spacious, comfortable and relaxing.
Or you can stay in the modern two-bedroom cottage, which opens onto the family’s Tuscan-style garden, with arbour-covered alfresco dining area and large sheltered swimming pool.
Cook for yourself or join the family for meals around their enormous timber dining table.
With so much to do, from schooling to bird watching, four-wheel driving to feeding the animals, it’s worth staying for a couple of nights. Approach slowly though, so as not to arrive in a cloud of dust.
