The scorched mud flats and gorges of the Kim­ber­ley are the ul­ti­mate sym­bol of Aus­tralia for some, and a re­treat at the Home Val­ley Sta­tion, bor­der­ing the Cock­burn Range, is an ideal way for fam­i­lies to con­nect with the sur­rounds. With ac­com­mo­da­tion rang­ing from Grass Cas­tles to Eco Tents, your lit­tle out­back rangers are en­sured a peace­ful night’s sleep be­fore tak­ing to the land again.

Get hooked on horse-rid­ing lessons de­signed specif­i­cally for minia­ture eques­tri­ans.

Savour a gourmet cheese and fruit plat­ter on a sun­set tour of the Cock­burn Ranges. Those that have been to the Kim­ber­ley are aware of its pull, and to ex­pe­ri­ence its land­scape by sea is an al­to­gether dif­fer­ent en­counter, equally wor­thy of your time. The bou­tique ad­ven­ture ves­sel, True North, scours its coast­line in search of the most mag­i­cal wa­ter­falls, gorges and rivers and pas­sen­gers are treated nightly to some of the fieri­est sun­sets in the world.

The ship’s res­i­dent he­li­copter will beckon kids to ex­plore new heights.

Learn about the art, cul­ture, his­tory, flora and fauna of the Kim­ber­ley re­gion from the res­i­dent nat­u­ral­ist and on­board ex­perts.
