Historically shearing has been a major part of the station activity at Beltana with up to 90 Shearers employed in the 1870's. At times there were over 17,000 sheep on Beltana and nearby stations would also bring their sheep here to be shorn.
The Shearers Quarters were a comfortable home for the workers with 6-8 men sharing a room for the duration of their contract. To keep everyone entertained there were often dances and cricket matches organised as social activities.
Today Beltana runs mainly Dorper sheep which are known for their prime lamb meat and their ability to shed their fleece, so there is only a small amount of shearing now done at Beltana.
The Shearers Quarters have now been fully renovated and the 11 rooms are air conditioned and can sleep 2,3 or 4 guests. There is a shared kitchen which has both modern equipment as well as a functioning wood oven and stove. There is a communal dining area with a table to seat many and lounge chairs to sit and relax, read about the local history or play a board game. Shared bathrooms and washing machines are close by as well as an undercover BBQ and entertainment area.
Rooms are $90.00 per night based on 2 people ($15 per night per extra Adult, $10.00 per night per extra child). Price includes all linen.
