Diggers Rest Station is a cattle station nestled on the banks of the tidal King River in the East Kimberley. The majestic Cockburn Ranges to the West and the Erskine Ranges to the East provide a stunning backdrop to the station, and Diggers Rest Station was one of the locations used in the filming of Baz Luhrmann’s Australia.
The drive is 46 kilometres from the historic town of Wyndham along the picturesque King River Road, 4wd only.
The atmosphere is relaxed and ageless, with the rare opportunity to step back in time and become part of the ancient landscape and traditions.
From horse riding, self-guided fishing, bushwalking to bird watching, there’s plenty to do – or you can do very little. You’ll soon feel at home here, whether you’re after an incredible adventure or just wanting to take it all in from the verandah.
At the East end of the Gibb River Road, Diggers Rest Station is the first (or last) campsite on your adventure.
Take a short ride, from a couple of hours up to a day. Or join one of our weeks of station based horse riding holidays. We’ve been operating our horse treks since 1986, so ride with us for the real deal!
Our surefooted and well-trained stock horses are available for two hour, three hour and full day trail rides. Take in the amazing landscape of Digger’s Rest by horseback, meandering along the tidal King River, riding amongst the unique boab trees, and following cattle pads over rises for breathtaking views of the Cockburn Ranges.
You can also join us on a spectacular two hour Sunset Ride, which takes in our favourite sunset spot with nibbles and cool drinks.
An experienced guide accompanies all rides. We welcome novice to advanced riders, from age 12 and up.
2 Hours $170.00 per person
3 Hours $210.00 per person
Full Day $360.00 (lunch included)
