- This article covers the Australian usage. In the UK, outstation or out-station can mean a type of bus garage.
Historically, an outstation was a subsidiary homestead or other dwelling on Australian sheep or cattle stations (ranches) which were large enough to have more than a day's travel between different parts of the property.
These settlements are usually made up of Aboriginal people with close kinship ties and are located on lands that are significant to them for cultural reasons.
