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.

    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 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.

    Spent 2 nights at Diggers Rest Station in a bush hut. We were instantly made to feel welcome by Alida & Roderick at Diggers. They were in the middle of their busy mustering time but still provided good old country hospitality. Enjoyed our times around camp fire with their stockmen and WWOOFERS . Went for an early morning horse ride on a true gentleman "Kat". Loved every minute of our short stay
