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.
