Pilbara Oasis between Karijini & Ningaloo

Cheela Plains Station is a family owned and managed working cattle station nestled in the semi-arid, pastoral rangelands of the Pilbara in northern Western Australia. Our station-stay is a welcome stop for travellers on the Nanutarra-Munjina Road between the World Heritage listed Ningaloo Reef and Karijini National Park.

Cheela Plains Station spans the Beasley River Gorge with ancient rock formations that can be traced to the origins of the range in Karijini National Park.

Comfortable bed, however the donga's walls are paper thin, bring some earbuds in case your neighbour is loud. The food was delicious and the staff very welcoming. There is only one enclosed ladies shower, and an additional two in the open, so it gets pretty busy (and cold in the winter months). The common grounds are beautifully kept.

Cheela Plais is a great place to visit. We stayed two nights at the main camping area and enjoyed their Cafe and Burger night then took our van to another of their camping areas to camp in and around their own gorges. Highly recommend Cheela plains.

Great place to stop on the way to Karajini. Lovely to sit on the lawn under the trees watching the bungarra chase grasshoppers. Climb to the top of the hill to watch the sun rise and set. Eat at the Cafe or sit by the fire. Just superb.
