This seven day horse riding holiday will take riders through a variety of landscapes, with the view of the Cockburn Ranges to be enjoyed every day of riding. Hope you can join us!

Day One

Guests are picked up in Kununurra by mid day (either at accommodation or at the airport). We'll have a chance to meet and visit over lunch at one of the cafes in town, and then make our way out to Diggers Rest!

Day Two

We spend the first morning getting to know the horses, having a ride around the house paddocks, and back to the station for lunch. In the afternoon we head out to ride along the salt arm of the King River, watching the colours come to life and the Erskine Ranges light up from the setting sun.

Day Three

Riders saddle up and head out of Digger’s, passing ancient boab trees, gilgais (small waterholes in open country), through ti tree country and on to Duck Hole for mid day break.  The afternoon ride takes us by the infamous Boab Prison Tree, along the banks of the tidal King River and back to Diggers.

Day Four

This morning finds us out along the tidal billabongs to the north of the station…wide open spaces that will take your breath away! Many an opportunity for a canter awaits us (with the option to hang back at a trot too).

Day Five

We pack our bathers today, and make our way along a creek system up towards the Cockburn Ranges. Sitting high on a rise is a beautiful dam, safe for a swim, and a fantastic spot to take in the views of the King River Valley.

Day Six

We ride out to the edge of the marsh today, where Slatey Creek comes out of the the rocky ridges and on to the flats. This creek, which has a powerful flow during the wet, is a series of waterholes during the dry season, much to the enjoyment of hundreds of birds!

Day Seven

Time to say good bye to your faithful steed...after a leisurely breakfast, we grab the bags and make the two hour journey back to Kununurra.
