ItineraryThis is a typical itinerary for this productStop At: Bungaree Station, Clare, South AustraliaWe begin an absorbing day with a tour of historic Bungaree Station, an important part of South Australia’s pastoral history located on the northern outskirts of Clare.The name comes from the aboriginal word “Bungurrie”, meaning “My Country” or “Place of Deep Water” and the station’s story begins on Christmas Day, 1841, when it was purchased as grazing land by the Hawker brothers.It would become an extensive farming property running around 100,000 merino sheep across almost 70,000 hectares. Today it remains outwardly unchanged and is run as a mixed farm by the fourth, fifth and sixth generations of the Hawker Family.Duration: 2 hoursStop At: Burra Copper Mine, Burra, South AustraliaBy mid-morning we’ll be on our way to Burra.
