Our Base - Digger's Rest Station
Since the late 1800’s, Wyndham in the far north of Australia has survived as a frontier town, clinging to a small strip of land between the Cockburn Ranges and the tidal flats of the Cambridge Gulf. Drive south of Wyndham for an hour on a four wheel drive road, following the winding path of the King River and you'll come upon Digger's Rest Station. First established in the 1930’s as a staging post for Afghan cameleers travelling along the Karunjie Stock Route, it now operates as a cattle station and offers horse trekking and station stays.
For the last 40 years, Digger’s Rest has been home to Roderick Woodland - a third generation, Kimberley-born cattle man. With his wife Alida, Roderick breeds cattle and has run horse trekking holidays for over 30 years. The rustic station is dotted with extraordinary boab trees and bristles with wildlife and birds. Visitors can stay in a range of accommodation including bush huts (with the best views in the east Kimberley) and air-conditioned bunkhouse rooms.
As a base for On The Verandah Kimberley Adventures, the station provides guests a unique window to the real Kimberley and a chance to stay with people who live and breathe Kimberley life.
It's not a resort - you won't be waited on - but you will be warmly welcomed and appreciated. It's not luxury, but you will be comfortable. It's the Kimberley - it's the real deal.
