Although Pungalina Station is now closed, there are beautiful wilderness regions in Australia’s gulf country in our air tours – that will fit any recreational activity.
“When Tony Kirkhope rang and offered me a trip to his Pungalina Station in a remote part of the Northern Territory, I leapt at the opportunity. I was retiring, for the third time, on the Thursday and he was leaving on the Friday. I couldn’t think of a better way of putting the past 18 somewhat gruelling months of 16 hour days behind me and starting a new and relaxed life.”
Pungalina Station? A half million acre property on the Calvert River, 40 kilometres from the Gulf of Carpentaria. A property of pristine Australian wilderness with countless attractions and abundant plant and wildlife, red faced gorges, lakes, limestone caves, swimming holes, a wide blue river, barramundi leaping onto hooks, a safari camp with generous amenities, great food, the ever necessary bar and a range of escorted activities that take advantage of all the Pungalina experience has to offer.”
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.
