Franz Weber's Bonrook Resort, Pine Creek, NT, Australia

Located near the historic township of Pine Creek, on the Stuart Highway between Katherine and Darwin, Bonrook Resort is a unique venture in a unique setting.

Back in the eighties, Bonrook had been nothing but an abandoned cattle station for years - until 1989, when the Swiss based Franz Weber Foundation, an international non profit humane organisation for the protection of nature and wildlife, purchased the property and turned it into a sanctuary for the persecuted Australian brumby and a natural reserve for native wildlife.

Franz Weber Territory soon became a place of attraction for nature and animal lovers who came to watch the magnificent wild horses running free in peace and safety - and discovered great, untouched spaces and a native fauna of surprising variety and abundance as well.

Bonrook Resort was built near the old homestead on Bonrook Creek and blossomed into a patch of paradise. Today it welcomes visitors, passing tourists and staying guests the year round not only from Australia but from all over the world.
