Kimberley Station Stays

Station Stays

A stay in Kimberley cattle station country is like stepping onto a film set – from the epic backdrop of the Cockburn and Carr-Boyd ranges, to cattle mustering by horseback or helicopter. Yes, there are cattle stations the size of small European countries that often require helicopters to drive their cattle on their remote properties. And yes, Hollywood film directors and actors have been on set here too.

These vast stations are the manmade icons of the Kimberley. They stand as testament to the huge efforts expended by early pastoralists and their modern day counterparts. They offer you the chance to muck in and experience life on a working station, as well as some genuine outback hospitality.

Roll out your swag under a blanket of stars. Stay in historic homesteads. Or seek out some luxury at an outback lodge. Ride the old stock routes with skilled stockmen. Explore the property’s stunning gorges and ranges. Have a go at cracking a stock whip. Join the locals at a Kimberley rodeo. Visit the museum of WA pioneering history at Argyle Downs Homestead. Dine alfresco and listen to the orchestra of nature. Or enjoy long evenings sharing great food and epic tales around the campfire.
