Shearer's Quarters

Murray Sunset National Park Accommodation


The Shearers Quarters is perfect if you want to escape to a remote outback environment. Nestled in the heart of Murray-Sunset National Park, it is set in one of the few semi-arid regions in the world where the environment remains relatively untouched.

Stay in the historic Shearers Quarters cottage, which was once the sleeping quarters of men who herded livestock through the region. The rustic self-contained cottage sleeps up to 10 people and offers creature comforts such as a gas fridge, oven and stovetop, as well as a bathroom with hot showers and flushing toilets. Bookings are essential.

There is a limited supply of non-potable water for showering but you will need to supply your own drinking water. Remember to bring everything else you need, including linen, pillows, cooking equipment and firewood for the adjacent outdoor fire pit.

A 4WD is needed to access to Shearers Quarters and the roads can be difficult to pass when wet.
