Tasty treats at sheep station

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.
