Home Valley Station
Set at the foot of the majestic Cockburn Range, Home Valley Station is an outback adventure playground. It features a breathtaking combination of towering gorges, sparkling waterholes, billabongs, waterfalls and ancient landforms. From gentle gorge walks and relaxing boating to adventurous horse treks and cattle mustering, Home Valley Station has an inspiring range of tours and activities available. Shady campsites are on offer at the homestead for those who enjoy relaxing by the lagoon-style pool, and there is riverside camping on the mighty Pentecost a few kilometres away, offering more basic charm. Home Valley Station is off the Gibb River Rd, 8.8 km west of the Pentecost River crossing and 106.5 km east of the road to Ellenbrae Station.

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.
