'Rose Isle' is a grazing property located 70 km down stream of Bourke on the Louth - Bourke road part of the Darling River Run with beautiful river views and peaceful camp sites. We have powered and un-powered lawn sites and river sites for caravans, camp trailers, boats and tents, but also provide shearer quarters, cabin and self contained cottage accommodation for those travelling without setting up their own camps. Enjoy fishing, bird watching, hiking, kayaking or just relaxing in the back country.
'Rose Isle' is only 30 km from Louth, so makes it a great central spot for day trips to hike and visit Mt Gundabooka, Louth, Toorale Station, and nearby towns Cobar and Bourke.
The historic Rose Isle house was built in 1897 by the Faulkhaguan family. There has only ever been 2 owners of the property the Faulkhaguan family and the Mooring family.
We, Garry and Samantha Mooring have lived at 'Rose Isle' with our family for the past 38 yrs, with Garry's family here before that. We run sheep and cattle; Samantha also runs a catering business (Mitchell Catering) with her mother and sisters. As a working property there are often seasonal activities such as shearing that you may like to see and be a part of.
We offer homestyle hospitality and can cater for overnight visitors with dinner and breakfast, and will also prepare homemade packs for your day trips.
You only need 2 as a minimum booking for a home cooked three course meal!
A highlight everyday in tourist season is our beautiful home made morning tea. Served at 10.30 - 11am daily overlooking the beautiful Darling River.
Come and see the real outback!
