LAURIE NOWELL goes Outback for a safari holiday
Escape, Sunday Herald Sun, June 24, 2007
PUNGALINA Station must be one of Australia’s best-kept secrets. In the Northern Territory’s famous Gulf country, it is a natural paradise unspoilt by humans.
A former cattle station that failed because its terrain was too rugged to allow the productive mustering of cattle, Pungalina has been reborn as a wilderness destination.
The ruggedness and remoteness that contributed to its failure as a cattle operation are Pungalina’s key assets as a place to escape the constraints of urban living.
A sort of amalgam of the Kimberley and Kakadu, Pungalina’s attractions are twofold.
Please note that Pungalina Station is no longer available for air tours.
A huge thank you for a truly marvellous three days. So well looked after by Tony, nothing was too much trouble, accommodation and meals first class. Amazing views of our beautiful country and a further insight into the lives of the people who live in remote places.
