Part working cattle station, part training facility, Home Valley Station offers a unique taste of life in the Kimberley.
Home Valley Station caters not only for travellers on the Gibb River Road, but for Indigenous students and trainees from many communities across the Kimberley.
Owned by the Indigenous Land Corporation, the station hosts up to 14 full-time students in Indigenous tourism, hospitality and horticultural traineeships, as well as offering a range of
apprenticeships within its commercial kitchen and mechanical workshop.
As well as being a working cattle station and training facility, Home Valley Station offers a range of accommodation, tours and activities for the traveller. Horse riding, fishing, helicopter and 4WD tours are all on offer and there are numerous self-guided walking trails.
The Dusty Bar & Grill is the epicentre of the social scene at the station. From a pre-dinner drink to a full meal from the a-la-carte menu, it has a great atmosphere with its decor of station memorabilia. Most evenings, there is also free entertainment either in the bar or around the adjacent campfire.
- There are two camping options at Home Valley Station. Homestead campground is close to the Dusty Bar & Grill, station store and lagoon-style pool. Pentecost River bush camp is 4km from the homestead, overlooking the Pentecost River to the Cockburn Range.
- Horse riding tours range from 15-minute pony sulky rides for the kids to full-day outback adventures.
- Home Valley Station is home to the annual Pentecost Pro Big Barra Fishing Tournament and is renowned as one of the best spots to reel in one of those elusive fish. Boat and shore fishing tours are available, or you can simply try your luck from the river’s edge right in front of the Pentecost River bush camp.
