Drysdale River Station

Hotel - Resort - Western Australia


Drysdale River Station is the last refueling stop on your way to the magnificent Mitchell Falls.  They are located 1km off the Kalumburu Road

We are not a hotel, not a motel, not a farm stay, not a bed and breakfast, not a roadhouse, but we ARE an Australian outback mixture of all these things.  While we are a general service center, even more important to your fun & comfort is our Beer Garden, "Kimberley North". Offering shaded tables, cold beer, good food and on cold nights a log fire all combine to ensure it is the hub of the North Kimberley.

Trading Periods:

We are open for business during Australia's northern 'dry' season. The road to us is impassable and therefore officially closed during the summer 'wet' season. We do not open for fuel until the road is legally opened by the local shire.
