Experience Details

Enjoy staying on an authentic Australian cattle station and ride with the true cattle(wo)men of the Kimberleys in Western Australia who have been preserving the experience and history of the stockmen, the cattle musters and the pioneering years of one of Australia’s most beautiful regions.

You will be riding on two of the most historic over 700,000 acres large cattle stations.

When you wake up in the morning you will feel transported back in time, into the scenes from Baz Luhrmann’s movie AUSTRALIA. Yes, you are not mistaken, this is where some of the filming took place. So, enjoy the view and ride your heart out!

What to expect

There is no set program for your stay and this is what a signature experience is all about. You tell us what and how much you would like to do and just choose from our menu of experiences we have on offer. And don’t you worry, we’ll definitely serve up a whole lot of horse riding as a main course. If you feel like getting involved in the action, there will always be some jobs to do which might involve checking on some water troughs and cattle, checking fences and so much more. You can also look forward to a sunset ride or a sunset drive on one of the evenings.

On a horse you will be riding through landscapes and sceneries which will take your breath away. This is the real deal about life on a cattle station and we can guarantee that the scenery will be even more spectacular than on the big “Australia” cinema screen. We can also tell you that life will be much better on a real cattle station a far cry from the life of “Lady Ashley”!

The Horses

There is a large herd of well trained and sure-footed stockhorses available each one of them familiar with the terrain and working cattle and all horses will be matched to the riders’ abilities for a most enjoyable experience. Matching the right horse with a rider is so much more important on a cattle station when horse and rider form a true partnership to get station work done.

Roderick and Alida Woodland

Alida and Roderick have called The Kimberleys their home for many years and they have been sharing their love for the land, the cattle and the horses with guests from all over the world for many years.
