Wooleen Station is accessible by a mixture of gravel and bitumen roads.

Although we recommend a 4WD, the station is still very accessible with a 2WD for those comfortable driving on gravel roads.

The gravel roads surrounding Wooleen Station and within the Shire of Murchison are maintained to a high standard by the shire works crew. A detailed road report can be found on their website.

Things you might like to consider and remember when driving on a gravel road:

  • Wildlife and Stock – Road ways are not fenced and therefore kangaroos, emus, cows, sheep and other wildlife are free to roam and cross the roads at will. Slow down and give animals right of way if you see them up ahead.
  • Dust and Visibility – Visibility can be an issue due to the dust clouds kicked up by your vehicle or by those traveling ahead. If necessary, slow down and remain vigilant.
  • Weather Conditions and Mud – Rain can make the roads muddy and impassable, watch the weather closer to departing and remember to check the shire road condition report or call the homestead for an update (08) 9963 7973. Alternatively, the extremely hot weather will necessitate you travel with extra food and water supplies on board.

Overall, driving to Wooleen Station should be a very pleasant experience. Remember to travel at a speed comfortable for you and your passengers, appreciate the natural bush that surrounds and spot some wildlife along the way.
