Carinya Station – Lightning Ridge

Caravan, Camping and Holiday Parks

We are Joe Jacinda Archie and Clay, and we live near Lightning Ridge North Western NSW on a Grazing property called ‘Carinya Station’. Carinya is 6600 Acres, running mainly Merino and merino Cross Sheep for the purpose of Wool production and trade lamb sales.

Joe and Jacinda Purchased Carinya in January 2012, Not long after this Jacinda Mum contacted us to ask if her cousin and wife would be able to park their van and stay a week or two and give a hand on the property. Before we knew it, John and Virginia had been with us for 3 months, and we had made friends for life. During this time John had made several comments about tapping into the grey nomad travellers market and 5 years later here we are.

We have met so many wonderful people from all walks of life, most of whom have no idea the positive impact they have had on our lives. Having people here through the cooler months even if it’s just to see you is like us being on holidays every day!

Be involved as much or as little as you like, if you have skills that you could lend us, all help is greatly appreciated. We know you are on holidays make it an experience!
