Trav­ellers through the Murchi­son will be able to stop for a bite at the Yuin Sheep Sta­tion at a tem­po­rary cafe be­tween Au­gust 10 and 20.

The sta­tion was es­tab­lished in 1870 and was one of the first set­tle­ments in the area.

Pas­sion­ate home cook Emma Foulkes-Tay­lor said the popup cafe was for any­one who would like to take a drive out to the bush, have a nice lunch in the gar­den and view the his­toric home­stead.

“I’ve thought about do­ing this for a long time, as I re­ally like cook­ing,” she said.

“It’s a nice lit­tle oa­sis out here and I thought peo­ple might like to come out and see the sta­tion.”

Mrs Foulkes-Tay­lor said book­ings were es­sen­tial as she could only cater for about 30 peo­ple a day.

She hoped to pro­vide good coun­try-style cook­ing us­ing pro­duce from her vegetable gar­den and or­chard.

Mrs Foulkes-Tay­lor also warned there was no mo­bile phone sig­nal out on the sta­tion.

“I’ll be send­ing an in­for­ma­tion book­let to peo­ple who RSVP be­cause there are a few things to note, such as pay­ment op­tions — peo­ple have to bring cash — there’s no mo­bile phone sig­nal and the road con­di­tions need to be checked be­cause there is about 63km of dirt road,” she said.

In­ter­ested peo­ple can re­serve a seat at the Yuin Sheep Sta­tion pop-up cafe by email­ing out­back larder@gmail.com.
