Yuin Station - Homestead - Murchison - Western Australia

These pictures show some of the images at the Yuin Station Homestead area on the Grenough River approx 200km inland from the coast.     See a separate page for pictures further from the homestead.

Yuin Station was settled on 1 Jan 1870 by Thomas Burges and bought in 1939 by Michael Foulkes-Taylor

The following photos were taken at Yuin Station in July 1999 and on a subsequent visit in June 2001. Yuin Station is about 100km north east of the township of Morawa. It is a working sheep station run by the Foulkes-Taylor family in conjunction with Tardie Station further to the east.  In addition to looking at the scenery and seasonal wild flowers, you can see mustering and shearing at various times of the year.

By prior arrangement with Rosco & Anne
Foulkes-Taylors (owners), you can stay on the station, either in the shearers quarters or as a camper (as we did). There is a little to see within walking distance of the homestead however a few day trips into the surrounding area are well recommended. the owners can guide or take you or extended travels around the station. If Shearing is in progress, the shearing shed is only a stones throw from the homestead.

The best time to see the wild flowers is August to September each year but many are already out in July.
