Diggers Rest Station
Diggers Rest is an authentic, working cattle station, nestled on the banks of the tidal King River in the King River Valley.

This campsite is located in Gibb River Road
The Gibb River Rd was originally built to transport cattle from the surrounding stations to Derby and Wyndham. Since those stations opened their doors to travellers, it has become one of Australia’s most popular tourist routes. It provides access to the magnificent Kimberley region and its very diverse landscapes, which range from lush, tropically vegetated river gorges and rainforests, to vast savannah woodlands and open plains, all of which have stood the test of time and prospered despite human intervention. The road covers a distance of about 650 km and should only be travelled in the dry season, May–Nov.
