Do I need to book for Tamala?
We do prefer to receive bookings, especially to try and have someone at the homestead when you arrive.
This is not always possible as we do have other jobs to do on the station. If we are not expecting anyone, you might find yourself in front of a locked gate for a few hours.
Our office is situated opposite the shearing shed (the large building you see when you arrive at the homestead) on the verandah of the manager’s cottage.
You can pull up in front of the cottage.
If you cannot see anyone, please ring the pipe bell at the beginning of the path loudly and the electronic bell left of the door.
