Bullo River Station joins Luxury Lodges of Australia collection


Remote Northern Territory cattle station Bullo River Station has joined Luxury Lodges of Australia’s collection of luxury lodges and camps.

Set on some 400,000 acres of privately owned outback country at the convergence of the Bullo and Victoria rivers in the East Kimberley, Bullo River Station offers guests an authentic working cattle station experience.

Surrounded by rugged hills inscribed with Aboriginal rock art, the station is home to a stunning variety of local fauna species including kangaroos, wallabies, dingoes, myriad native and migratory birds, fish and crocodiles, as well as around 2,000 Brahman-cross cattle.

Guests explore Bullo with their own guide before returning to one of the 12 guest rooms available on the station, which is owned by Alexandra and Julian Burt.

“Together, the Luxury Lodges of Australia members represent the pinnacle of the experiential tourism offering in Australia, have exceptional brand reach, and are essential to the way Australian luxury is perceived by international audiences,” said Alexandra.

“We deeply admire all of the properties, their character and personality as well as their commitment to excellence, and we feel privileged to join this outstanding cohort.”

Julian said the team’s vision for Bullo River Station was to demonstrate that thriving cattle operations and vibrant ecosystems can coexist.

“By partnering with the Australian Wildlife Conservancy and reshaping our approach to pastoral activities, as well as our luxury tourism operations, we plan to lead by example. We hope to prove that sustainable practices are not only feasible but essential for a resilient future,” he said.

Luxury Lodges of Australia executive chair Penny Rafferty said the addition of Bullo River Station to the collection added to the depth and diversity of its portfolio.

“The Bullo experience is distinctively Australian: raw yet refined, vast yet intimate, understated yet luxurious by virtue of access to the land and the genuine hospitality of the hosts,” Rafferty said.

“Bullo is the kind of uniquely Australian experience that aligns perfectly with the Luxury Lodges of Australia DNA.”
