Wooleen Station WA – the story.
The Pollock family have owned Wooleen Station since 1990. Helen and Brett began offering friendly, traditional Australian outback hospitality in beautiful surroundings with fine food, good wines and personalised service for everyone from the adventurous adult to a family group.
Today, David Pollock and wife Frances Pollock are your hosts whilst staying at Wooleen Station. You will no doubt meet David and Frances during your time at Wooleen, regardless of where you stay.
David started studying Environmental Conservation at Edith Cowan University to follow his passion for the land and conserving it. He has spent time overseas noting and observing methods used in other countries to look after pastoral land.
David is now focused on regenerating Wooleen after many years of hard overstocking and finding a sustainable way to run stock and look after the environment. He has previously been the president of the Murchison Land Care Committee and sat on the board of Rangelands NRM.
Frances started studying Eco-tourism at Murdoch university and has a diploma in Social Media Marketing. Frances previously chaired the Gascoyne Murchison Tourism (inc) and currently sits on the board of Australia’s Golden Outback representing the Gascoyne-Murchison sub region.
