Woolgorong Station is located in the Murchison region (27 44 46 S, 115 49 38 E). It is not too far from Perth, being a one day drive, and does not require a 4WD to get to the main station complex.

The Woolgorong Outstation (27 44 18 S, 115 49 30 E) is approximately 30 km from the main homestead and has some historical importance but is in some disrepair.  At the request of the Department of Environment and Conservation (DEC) Geraldton, the  Track Care Special Projects team lead by Jeff Hemsley developed a project to assess the viability of restoring the outstation.

The team visited a number of stations on the way to Woolgorong Station in early October 2010.  The stations are all under the DEC management with Burnerbinmah the only nature reserve.   The trip plan was to undertake a reconnaissance of Warriedar, Thundelarra , Burnerbinmah, Dalgaranga and Muggon stations with the final destination, Woolgorong Station.   This was to be the base camp for  the Woolgorong Outstation project.  At each of these sites possible projects were evaluated and a detailed report developed as a planning document for 2011 and beyond. (For more see report link above: WOOLGORONG OUTSTATION RECONNAISSANCE OCTOBER 2010)

The project took more than three years to complete and as of April 2019 the building has remained in good repair.
