Another amazing time at Carinya! Thanks to Jacinda & Joe for their hospitality. I would recommend staying there to anyone visiting the Lightning Ridge area. It's a great spot to base yourself to explore all there is to see, and also to just relax and learn about life on a farm.

What an unteal place. So glad we found this and stayed here. The hosts were the most welcoming people. Jacinda was a beautiful sole. Made scones which were one of the best ive had. Very proud of what they've built up at the station. Loads of animals. Plenty of areas to camp. Were putting in 2 extra long drops while we were there. 5 oclock happy hour around the fire. Met some wonderful people. Short drive to town snd baths. Highly recommend. Will be back.

We had a great time camping at Carynia station with our 2 kids aged 12 and 9. It was the perfect location for exploring the area, and nice to be back after a long to sit around the campfire and enjoy some star gazing. It was fairly busy when we arrived during the Easter weekend with families but we had no problem finding our own quiet spot a bit further away from the homestead. There is a potable water tank which is great, and the long drop toilets were very clean. No shower so you have to either bring your own bush shower or use the free facilities at the artesian baths in town - we actually ended going for a swim at the local pool and used the hot showers there which was perfect after a long day exploring. Thanks again, and we look forward to coming back again in the near future!

I enjoyed my short stay on Carinya Station. The hosts are very welcoming, a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. Jacinda's tour around the farm gave a good insight into farm life. Would be good to bring the grand children next time. Recommended.
