Diggers Rest Station Homestead

Diggers Rest Station is an authentic working cattle station, nestled on the banks of the tidal King River in the King River Valley.

The majestic Cockburn Ranges (as featured in Baz Lurhmann’s movie Australia) to the West and the Erskine Ranges to the East provide a stunning backdrop to the station.

The drive is 40 kilometres from the historic town of Wyndham along the picturesque King River Road.

The atmosphere is relaxed and ageless, with the rare opportunity to step back in time and become part of the ancient landscape and traditions.

    We had such amazing rides, great horses, fantastic scenery and great hosts! We could not have been better looked after and the food was wonderful, thanks so much to Roderick and Alida.  I would recommend this trip to anyone!! I would certainly go again too.

    I had an absolutely wonderful stay at Digger's Rest. I took part in the muster (May 2014). The accommodations were comfortable, the food was tasty and hearty, and the horses were well-mannered and soft. I met a fantastic group of people (Alida and Roderick, of course – but also all the stockmen, "woofers", photographers and other guests). And... the Kimberley is breathtaking! This was probably my best travel holiday ever.

    I first rode at Diggers Rest with Roderick and Alida in 2000. I've been back almost every year since then. Always for at least 7 days, but usually a 10 or 14 day ride. I have had great experiences, met superb people and ridden fantastic, capable and willing horses. Diggers Rest is the Australian outback, honest, no frills, superb country and unique in the world. If you enjoy camping, riding and looking out for horses, bush walking and campfire company, this is the holiday you will talk about forever.

    I had an amazing time at Digger's Rest in 2011. I was picked up from the plane, we collected supplies and then drove to the station. Settling in was easy as everyone was so welcoming and relaxed and the food was delicious. The second day I met my horse and had a gentle ride to get used to him. My trip to Australia was for the 14 day trek in the outback. What a trip it was - Beautiful horses, laughter & new friendships, fantastic food, amazing starry skies, crocodiles to watch, the lovely heat on your back and awesome landscapes. Thank you to my horse, to everyone who rode with me and thank you to Alida & Roderick for making my holiday so special. I wish I could come back again some day.
