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 46 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.

    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 have just returned from a wonderful week at Digger’s rest Station in the Kimberley. I was participating in a photo safari run by Rachel and Andrew of “On The Verandah”.  Digger’s rest offer comfortable accommodation in either bunk rooms or bush huts. I chose the bush hut which offered views of the stars and the enjoyment of the night sounds. How wonderful to hear a dingo plus all the birds, cattle etc. Do not go to Digger’s rest if you plan to lose weight. The meals are yum and very substantial.  Owners Alida and Roderick are very welcoming and you feel as if you are a part of their family. The stunning scenery was perfect for a keen photographer. How wonderful to enjoy a part of the Kimberley that is not on the standard tourist route.  Bewley was a great tutor and he along with Andrew and Rachel went out of their way to provide the best opportunities for great photographs. The wonderful thing about Digger’s rest is that it offers so much. I was travelling solo but enjoyed the security of a group. If you have a partner who doesn’t want to participate in the workshops there is so much to keep them entertained. Walking around the station leads you to many hidden gems.  I hope to return in the future as I feel I have only scraped the surface of this wonderful part of the world.

    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.

    From the moment we were collected in Kununurra to the time we left, we were so thoroughly well looked after. The horses are superb, lovely natures and soft mouths, a joy to ride. Alida, an absolute delight, cooked up a storm that was so delicious breakfast, lunch and dinner. Loved sitting round the camp fire every night listening to Roderick’s wonderful stories of life in the Kimberleys…..he’s a legend!!! There wasn’t anything I didn’t love about this trip and hopefully will go back before too long!!!
