 How to get to Island Hills Station

IMPORTANT NOTICE: The farm is accessible by 2 wheel drive vehicles, the final 10km involves a gravel road and a single lane suspension bridge maintained by the council. The bridge is useable by ordinary 2wd vehicles, utes and vans up to 3.5 tonnes gross. The bridge is not recommended for oversized vans, campers or horse floats (it is 2.8m high and 2.1m wide). Larger campers can be parked at the river side 1 km from the farm and a pick-up can be organized in advance by phone 0224640140 or email shaun@islandhillsstation.com

There is the option of a river ford which can be crossed by 4WD vehicles and those towing horse floats during normal river flows. The crossing is typically shallow, however, the river level can rise quickly following heavy rain.
