Faraway Downs Station Kununurra Tourism Guide Western Australia Tourism
In 'Australia' the movie, the fictional station Faraway Downs is located in the majestic East Kimberley Region of Western Australia; the spiritual Country and lands of the indigenous Miriuwung Gajerrong people throughout the ages. The Cockburn Ranges, Diggers Rest Station, El Questro and Home Valley Station off the Gibb River Road, form many the awesome backdrops in the movie, with the stupendous King George Falls and bee-hive formations of the Bungle Bungle Ranges all lending authentic romance to the movie 'Australia'.
 

Kununurra Travel Deals



Home Valley Station


Home Valley Station is featured as parts of Faraway Downs Station and the exhausting 1000km cross country cattle drive in the movie Australia which features station horses, mustering, dinnercamps, yardwork, cattle dogs, bronco yards, and stockcamps on the long cattle drive. Home Valley Station is located in the East Kimberley region of Western Australia, some 120 kms west of Kununurra, just off the adventurous red dirt Gibb River Road.
 

Home Valley Attractions


Nestled at the base of the majestic Cockburn Range the Home Valley Station is a 7000,000-acre adventure land of natural attractions includes thermal springs, towering gorges, stunning waterfalls, rivers and waterholes brimming with wildlife. The mighty Pentecost and Durack Rivers border the 700,000 acres of natural wilderness, creating salt flats, rock escarpments, natural springs and billabongs. One of the most scenic and idyllic locations in the Kimberley, with spectacular views and tranquil surroundings, the area was once reputed to be a 'poddy dodger's*' corner *a cattle rustler, one who steals unbranded calves.
 

Aboriginal Ownership


Home Valley Station is now proudly owned by the Aboriginal Land Corporation on behalf of the Balanggarra people of the East Kimberley; local Aboriginal people are strongly involved in all aspects of the Station's operations and these original Australians have helped to make Home Valley Station into a hub of activity that caters for travellers as well as aboriginal trainees from across the Kimberley who learn horsemanship, stock handling, fencing, landscaping, and other practical outback skills.The remote outback Gibb River Road was only constructed in the mid 20th Century, to help pastoralists to export cattle from their remote outback stations to ports or abattoirs of Wyndham, in the East Kimberley or Derby or Broome in the West Kimberley. Now the Gibb River Road is one of the world's great self-drive four-wheel drive adventures traversing between the West Kimberley and the East Kimberley.
 

Diggers Rest Station


Diggers Rest Station in the East Kimberley nears Wyndham, just a 90-minute four-wheel drive ride away from Kununurra; and about as outback as you can get as seen in the movie Australia.Diggers Rest Station is a working cattle station where 2,500 Brahmans are run: some have never been yarded and these can be what the stockmen call 'a bit toey'. That just makes the whole visual experience much more exciting as the drovers on horseback drive the cattle to the yards, where they are branded and ear marked.
 

Diggers Rest Attractions - Fishing


Diggers Rest Station is a mecca for fishing tragics; Barramundi fishing in the Kimberley is for the seriously aspirational fisherman and Popeye Mullet too are excellent eating when the big Barras are biting.
 

Diggers Rest Stock Routes and Trails


Live the romance of the Kimberley stock routes in outback Australia with horse trekking available from Diggers Rest Station. See what Lady Sarah Ashley saw and fell in love with; perhaps the Speewah Valley on a six days trek in magnificent Kimberley scenery, with huge sandstone ranges and freshwater springs; perhaps experience the Oombulgurri Trek, along the original old Karunji Stock Route, with the Cockburn Ranges in view, then follow the Pentecost River before traversing Home Valley Station and up towards the Durack River; riding through marsh country, and over sandstone ridges, with good spring county along the way. Or trek from Diggers Rest Station to Parry's Creek and the Ord River.
