The Faces Behind Your Memorable Outback Experience at Corella

Georgi Your Host at Corella Creek

Georgi:

As an avid foodie, community educator and zoo guide, Georgi has lived and worked in Paris but grew up in the goldfields in WA’s outback. This means she is grounded in the ordinary but encourages the fabulous.

She is known for her straightforward communication and values authenticity. She loves hearing about the lives, travels and life stories of others. After a long day of adventure and creating beautiful meals for guests, you’ll find her unwinding with a refreshing GnT and sharing stories around the dinner table under the bistro lights.

Eric:

Eric, the man with a knack for all things DIY and a great storyteller, will be your company around the campfire (if you want company!) under the starry outback sky.

Known for his warm upbeat personality and love for sharing tales, he’s an integral part of the Corella experience. Eric is often the first face you see when you arrive at Corella as he welcomes you and passes on details to help you enjoy your outback experience in their unique community.

Our Unique Farm Friends

Embark on a Journey through Outback Life at Corella Creek Country Farm Stay

A charming feature of Corella lies in our delightful farm animals. Ziggy our working kelpie, the goat and dorper sheep herds, Miss Millie ‘The Campfire Cow’ and fancy poultry each add a distinct character to our farm stay, forming part of the rich tapestry of our daily life. With us, every day can be a different experience depending on who’s staying, which animal has had a baby, or even the whims of the weather.

We’re not a traditional cattle station but have purchased most of the blocks of the old township of Nelia and ‘recycled’ it. We have reinvigorated the property into an unique agritourism farm stay. The animals here are more than just residents; they’re part of our living community, each with their own unique stories to tell. Both children and adults find pure joy in these friendly interactions with our animal residents – and if you’re greeted by one of our goats upon arrival, don’t worry. They’ll enjoy your company as much as we do!

Among our most approachable and social characters is Miss Millie the queen of our campfire who arrives at the campfire each night around sunset and ‘holds council’ with our guests. Every guest loves her as much as we do!

So come, join us at Corella, be a part of our story, and make sure to capture these precious moments on camera. Your memorable journey through outback life awaits.

Reviews from Our Guests

“A unique Outback experience with very hospitable hosts. The outdoor spa was heavenly – so relaxing. We had a lovely long soak with wine in hand watching the sun go down. Our dinner was absolutely delicious, as was breakfast. I have never before met a cow who enjoys sitting by a campfire! Our bed was very comfy and we loved being able to have our little dog with us.”

Our Recovery Journey

The Heart and Soul Behind Corella Creek Country Farm Stay

Our journey at Corella Creek Country Farm Stay is an illustration to resilience and positive team work. The property, quirky and charmingly rustic, stands as a symbol of our spirit.

We experienced a massive setback in 2019 when the floods engulfed our land and guesthouse, causing extensive damage. Today, we are still in the midst of our rebuild, a testament to the perseverance and tenacity that defines the Australian spirit.

Our farm stay isn’t about polished edges or frills. Instead, we offer a genuine outback experience focused on quality conversations, stories, wholesome interesting food, and interactions with our farm and rescued animals. We aim to provide a unique taste of the true Australia, a window into the struggles and triumphs of small country families and the lives they live often in harsh environments.

If you expect perfection, you might find better suited accommodation elsewhere. But if you are looking for authentic connections, to understand the real challenges and joys of living on the land, and to contribute towards a stronger future for micro-communities, then you’re exactly where you need to be.

If you value contributing to make a difference through supporting local towns, businesses and families who work tirelessly and welcome visitors, you will also appreciate our vision and the progress we are making towards it.  Your stay supports our exciting agritourism project, showing our love for the environment, sustainability and survival. So, by choosing us, you’re not just picking a place to stay – you’re making a difference!
