Birdwood Downs

Private Campground - Western Australia


Birdwood Downs Station is a pastoral station of 2500 ha located on the Gibb River Road in the West Kimberley.

Since 1978 it has pioneered new ecological methods of improving degraded lands using stock management, weed control and planting improved grasses. Now the beautiful paddocks with their groves of native trees, spectacular boabs and eucalyptus, serve as a model for sustainable management of the tropical savannah and support our cattle herd. Read more about us.

Our Tourism facilities include a bush style campground for tents, campervans and camper trailers and a limited number of caravans. Savannah Huts are available to enjoy the luxury of a room in the beautiful gardens around the homestead. A well equipped camp kitchen is available. For those interested in our approach to sustainable ecology we have bush tucker tours through our paddocks.

Our accommodation is suitable for small groups. Meetings and functions can be held in our theatre and on our shady mahogany patch.

Our Savannah Nursery has reopened. We specialize in native plants and have quite a selection of non-natives

You are welcome to stay on our quiet bush style campground amongst a grove of shady trees. We offer sites with ample space for tents, camper trailers, campervans and caravans. You will have the experience of a bush camp combined with the comfort of shared facilities with a hot shower.

Our campground has excellent drinking water. You can use our well equipped camp kitchen.

All sites are unpowered.

To ensure the quiet nature of the place we do not allow generators and pets.

We provide caravan storage for those who want to visit the gorges along the Gibb River Road but do not want to take the caravan on that adventure.
