How exciting would it be to go on an authentic cattle muster with a few real stockmen!


The Diggers Rest Station cattle muster varies from day to day.  However, a typical day would be an early rise, breakfast, saddle up and ride out to the area being mustered that day.  You will either have a small mob of coacher cattle with you, or you’ll all muster them up as you ride along.  These quiet cattle are held by you and your fellow riders whilst chopper, bull buggy and other riders run cattle into the coacher mob.  You’ll then walk the cattle back to the yards for processing (branded, ear marked, castrated, drenched, etc).  When that’s done you’ll walk them back out again.


Some days you’ll be based at the station and some days/nights you’ll be camping out under the stars.  You’ll be spaced out between experienced stockmen, but they do require you to be competent riders (this muster is not for the beginners!).






Diggers Rest Station is a cattle station nestled on the banks of the tidal King River in the East Kimberley. The majestic Cockburn Ranges to the West and the Erskine Ranges to the East provide a stunning backdrop to the station, and Diggers Rest Station was one of the locations used in the filming of Baz Luhrmann’s Australia.


The drive is 46 kilometres from the historic town of Wyndham along the picturesque King River Road.


The atmosphere is relaxed and ageless, with the rare opportunity to step back in time and become part of the ancient landscape and traditions.


From horse riding, self-guided fishing, bush walking to bird watching, there’s plenty to do – or you can do very little. You’ll soon feel at home here, whether you’re after an incredible adventure or just wanting to take it all in from the verandah.
