Digger’s Rest Station is located about 40 kilometres south of Wyndham in the East Kimberley, Western Australia, at the eastern end of the Gibb River Road.

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.  It is located on over 20,000 acres.

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, bush walking 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.

Station Stay Accommodation: Come out and bed down in the air-conditioned Bunkhouse, or enjoy the spectacular views from one of our Bush Huts.

Bush Camping: If you prefer camping, set up camp around the old homestead or down on the banks of the King River.

Meals: Anyone staying with us is welcome to join us for a hearty breakfast, lunch or dinner at the Homestead.

Camping at Digger’s Rest Station is the perfect way to experience the Gibb River Road. It lets you experience the stunning views of the Cockburn Ranges, while taking a bit of time out for a spot of Barramundi fishing or bird watching.
