Diggers Rest Station Details 


Diggers Rest Station is a cattle station operating over 20,000 acres in the iconic East Kimberley region of Australia’s North West. We offer horse riding tours, station stay accommodation and bush camping.
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.
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.
Digger’s Rest Station offers outback station stay hospitality near Wyndham and Kununurra, in the midst of the magnificent Kimberley landscape. At the East end of the Gibb River Road, Diggers Rest Station is the first (or last) campsite on your adventure.
