Genuine Country Hospitality
We only open when Lightning Ridge is at its best
April 1st through to October 31
Farm tours available year round
We are Joe and Jacinda Barry and our five children Jess, Megan, Archie, Clay and Pippa.
We purchased Carinya in 2012. As the drought set in we sold off our cattle and reduced sheep numbers. To diversify, we began inviting grey nomads to come and stay in exchange for giving a hand on the farm.
Many of our guests over the years have turned into life long friends, and we are grateful to have met so many amazing, unassuming people from all walks of life that we have the privilege of calling our friends. We are renowned for treating our guests like they’re family, because essentially, if you are coming here with a genuine interest in what we do and why we do it, then you’re our type of people!
We pride ourselves on being a low impact camping experience and love that our guests feedback to us is all about making wonderful memories and lasting friendships.
We are now very excited to offer a number of packages to visitors to our farm, whether you're staying here or a day visitor. Have a look at our site and choose a package that suits you.
Carinya Station is a farm stay open to visitors of all ages, who want to experience our style of farming life.
Get involved in daily activities, meet new friends, play with our animals. Use your site as home base to travel around the region, or simply kick back, relax and enjoy the ambience.
We are located 10 mins from Lightning Ridge North Western NSW.
4KM of unsealed, maintained road.
Home of the Black Opal, fantastic coffee, fabulous hospitality and unique experiences.
