Angorichina Station is a working sheep property that encompasses 500 square kilometres of mountains, creeks, gorges and hills.
There’s always something happening on a sheep station, and you are welcome to join in whatever activities the Fargher’s have going. You can take part in seasonal activities such as sheep mustering and shearing, or join Ian on a bore run. A visit to the woolshed is a must; it is possibly the only native pine woodshed still in use in Australia.
A stay is not complete without a drive with Ian to one of the high peaks around the property to watch the sunset with drinks. This is also a time when the wildlife becomes active, and the hills are suddenly alive with wallabies, emus and kangaroos.
Angorichina is also ideally situated for those who want to explore the highlights of the surrounding mountain ranges. The Oratunga Track leads to the scenic highlights on Angorichina: Artimore Ruins, Patawarta Hill and Nildottie Gap, where yellow-footed rock wallabies can be seen in the late afternoon. This 50km-long track is a thrilling excursion for 4WD enthusiasts, nature lovers, photographers, history buffs and anyone with an interest in geology.
While out exploring the Flinders Ranges, guests often have the opportunity to pay a visit to one of Australia’s most famous outback pubs, the Prairie Hotel.
