We could be singing about Home Valley Station when the What’s Up Downunder title song says “It’s time to see this land, this land of wonder”.
As part of a 3 station property that covers 3.5 million acres, Home Valley Station is owned by the Indigenous Land Corporation on behalf of the Balanggarra People of the East Kimberley.
Set up as an on-site training academy for indigenous men and women in the area Home Valley Station offers sustainable employment for the locals and a unique experience for visitors.
Guests are treated to a variety of activities, from the gentlest of bush walks either on foot or horseback, to adrenaline pumping helicopter experiences, and everything in between. The staff at Home Valley Station are experts in making sure guests get the exact experience they are looking for.
With several types of accomodation to choose from you will feel right at home at the Station.
First and foremost, premium outback luxury is on offer at the Grass Castles, located amongst beautiful eucalypts on the banks of Bindoola Creek. With well appointed, ultra modern interiors, the Grass Castles are built reminiscent of the original pioneering settlers’ homesteads.
You’ll be forgiven if you feel like you’ve stepped back in time when entering the Guesthouse Rooms. Cleverly designed to recreate the original stockman’s quarters, these new buildings are completely modernised. The Guesthouse Rooms are conveniently located close to the Dusty Bar and Grill and the lagoon style pool.
If you’re looking to enjoy the sights and sounds of the Kimberley then the extra large Eco Tents are for you. These safari-style tents have high pitched roofs and large canvas windows on all sides that reveal the night sky. Each tent is fitted with a king size bed, soft linen, beautiful timber furniture and private decks. Extra beds can be added for a family stay.
Finally there is camping. Set at the foot of the majestic Cockburn Ranges, with powered and non-powered sites, the Home Valley Station camping ground is the perfect place to base yourself when touring the Kimberly region.
After a day experiencing Home Valley Station’s adventures, everyone converges on The Dusty Ba and Grill to enjoy an ice cold ale and the quality Australian cuisine. As the epicentre of night time entertainment, a unique a la carte dining experience is the perfect way to end your day.
Once the day is over, the dust has settled, and the sun sinks low in the western sky, you get to fully appreciate the beauty of Home Valley Station. With it’s changing colours and expansive star-filled sky, all that’s left to do is plan your next day’s adventure.
As a business that is responsible for the cultural and business diversification of the local Indigenous people, Home Valley Station is worth supporting.
