About Boshack Outback
The secluded Boshack property is a family-run enterprise with an ‘Outback Oasis’ environment.
The property covers 350 acres, and features pristine virgin bushland, a large freshwater lake, wildlife and natural springs (pioneers waterhole still in place).
The property is 90 minutes North-East of Perth.
At Boshack you can experience the special flora and fauna of the Australian bush and wilderness in its natural state. Our on-site facilities are eco-friendly, to preserve the harmony of the local habitat.
At Boshack Outback, we have taken sustainable living to the next level. We are a solar powered location with no mains power to our property. Our gardens are solar controlled by solar clocks with water drippers in summer and winter. The idea is to give little water often, during the day time.
Other forms of sustainable living at Boshack Outback:
- look at the yabbies in our ponds and experience pulling the nets and holding them up close
- Lake Serene is being continually stocked with fish for fishing – only catch and return please! If the population grows, we might be able to have some on the menu.
- paperbark from our paperbark forest is used to cook your sausages and meat -just like how aboriginal people did thousands of years ago
Wattening Springs Nature Reserve of over 100 acres of unspoilt bushland, surrounds the Boshack property.
Twenty years ago the owner squatted on the property for five years in a small shack, which he built in the middle of the bush.
The peace and tranquility was his way to relax, away from the pressures of the business world in the city. Whilst the hardships experienced by the early settlers to this land were many, he soon realised the bush and nature in general offered something special for the mind.
Life was lived quite simply by the early settlers. They had very little possessions and money, built their own homes with no electricity, cooked all their meals on a campfire and lived off the land.
Over the years our family and friends have been fortunate enough to enjoy this unique location for rest and relaxation. Getting back to nature in the outback bush has had a very positive effect on our whole well-being.
So often we were asked to share it with the rest of the world and so we have. We have endeavored to keep the property in its natural state, thus the facilities are simple, so not to effect the natural habitat. Welcome and enjoy the experience.
Authentic Australian Cultural Experience
The early culture established by the pioneers, through developing this most recently discovered country Australia, can be partly relived at Boshack. The accommodation of pioneer shacks with peaceful lake views, bush tucker food, outback activities and a bush environment allow you to be touched by nature.
While it was basic it could still be comfortable and leaves one with a very relaxed feeling.
Boshack Outback is isolated and in the middle of 5000 acre farms. This allows you a getaway from crowds, tall buildings and traffic. It is one of the few Western Australia iconic locations where you can visit all year round. Being directly east of Perth, our rainfall is only one third of Perth’s. Being in Western Australia, we do have some hot days. But being next to a lake and touring amongst springs, the heat is very seldom noticed. The real magic of Boshack is now depicted with our evening tour and for the day visitor they will see our starry skies before they leave after their Aussie BBQ
