Treated like Rock Stars!

by Jo Durbridge | Jan 21, 2015

Had a great sleep followed by an awesome breakfast thanks Freshwater East Kimberley Apartments!

Matt from Home Valley Station organised for us to be treated like rock stars, arriving via a seven seater plane from Shoal Air.

River from the air
The Ord River form the air.  There was smoke haze due to a large fire.

We enjoyed a birds eye view of the scenery and we were greeted by a smiling and waving Matt Payne as we landed.

Matt introduced us to Home Valley Station it is an amazing and beautiful place.

Champagne and a fruit platter were in our room along with some HMV gifts. A very, very nice surprise.

Dusty Bar and Grill is full of atmosphere and the food for our lunch gave any main town venue a run for its money.

Alfie a trainee was our guide for a sunset lookout tour which was beautiful. Taking in the Cockburn ranges while drinking Moet and eating cheese and nibbles. Alfie was a confident tour guide who has answers for every question we asked. He has a great charm about him coupled with a smile you will remember.
