Gulf Station, one of the treasured relics in Australia’s farming sector, traces its humble beginnings to the mid-19th century when the Bell Family first leased the land.
Initially, the station that measured 10117 hectares was known as the Gulf. This provided a home for the Bell Family and today, the remnant structures stand as part of the rich lasting legacy left behind by the family.

The station is also a family-friendly getaway as there are numerous activities for kids including Australia’s largest maize maze! The Farms Tracks investigation is particularly popular with kids, while the Farm Crime Scene challenges the children to solve the mystery of Farmer Joe’s disappearance.
Several events are held at the Gulf Station including the popular Heritage Festival which will feature traditional skills exhibits and demonstrations, music, local vendors and plenty of horse riding activities. The aim of the festival is to raise widespread community understanding of the value of heritage and the contribution it makes to the present.
