The landscape is out of this world if you have never been outback before, you really feel remote yet only 400km from Perth.

Before venturing into Ninghan station visitors must contact the station prior to visiting, when visiting you must head to the homestead and meet one of the Bell family.

Don Bell is the owner or you may be greeted by his son who is very helpful in giving directions & valuable track information. Don can provide you with a mudmap of the property and suggest where to camp and what to see. Basically the entire property is open to 4wding so follow a trail, find a spot you like the look of and setup camp.


Ninghan station itself can accommodate visitors at the station/homestead, they provide showers, running water and power. We did not stay at the homestead but for travellers not willing to go without showers or power you can always setup base camp at the homestead.

Ninghan is an old working station, but now mainly herd goats and about 400 sheep. There are so many things to see in this huge area. As you travel around the property there are numerous old wells, some still working and others are interesting ruins along with machinery and other structures.
The landscape is unreal with huge rock formations (some that look like waves), Lake Moore a massive salt lake, constant changing terrain and a big hill climb to the top of Mount Singleton.

Mount Singleton's peak sits at almost 700m above sea level, so the views at the top are spectacular. On the drive up there are multiple places to stop and have a look out at the horizon as you get closer and closer to the peak.
Once you get to the Telstra phone tower you have reached the top. You can then park your 4WD and venture by foot to the edges of Mount Singelton and soak up the great views and take some photos. You can easily spend over 2 hours just looking around.
