Question 7 emus station

thinking about putting a trip together for next year and am leaning towards this place. has any one had a first hand experiance camping and fishing at seven emus station/robinson river. i feel october could be the best month but willing to listen to other ideas. probable 3 4x4s, 6 blokes and 2 or 3 boats, would a 4.2mtr tinny with 30hp do the job. is there fresh water available any where near the river mouth or at the closest camp site to the mouth.

I think Bill Harney owned that property at one time. [Famous deceased Bushman and Author. Expert on most things Aboriginal.] If you haven't read any of his books, you're missing something. IMHO.

Just looked it up in his Autobiography, "A Bushman's Life". He bought it with a mate in 1921, after they came home from the First World War.

Cheers,
xina.

They don't have all of it so you may still be able to go. Google even has a booking page for camping.
