Well, 2020 was a crazy year for many of us with COVID-19 ruling our lives. I do hope that it has not been too traumatic for you. Fortunately for us this mad pandemic brought many of you to the Outback to explore and experience something completely foreign to you.

We hope you enjoyed your adventures and will be drawn to the Outback again in 2021!

With our 7 year long drought the seasons have been anything but kind to us with lack of sheep and cattle, and ongoing fodder costs to keep them alive. Tourism has been kind to us and that means YOU!

Thank you for staying or endeavouring to stay at Charlotte Plains to see its natural beauty, experience the hot Artesian Bore, wonder at the birds and wildlife and perhaps delve into the history with your host.

Some of you had to unfortunately cancel your booking, but maybe in 2021 you’ll be passing by and will pop in. I enjoyed meeting many each and every one of you that was able to visit us in 2020.

Charlotte Plains is not 5 star – it’s thousands of stars and staying is the difference between travelling and experiencing!

Whether it was camping in our back paddock, relaxing in the shearer’s quarters or enjoying the hot bore - thank you for your kindness and generosity in visiting.

Wishing you a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year,

Robyn Russell
Station Owner

Cooling down or warming up?

No matter what time of year a soak in the waters of the artesian bore is a must when you visit Charlotte Plains.

Charlotte Plains is a family owned and operated sheep station near Cunnamulla. They continue to run several thousand head of sheep, which they shear in their historic woolshed.

They offer an authentic outback experience to visitors, combining an insight into station life with a spectacular campground at their artesian bore.
