Fantastic week of horse widing in amazing Kimbley countryside at the base of the Cockburn Ranges. Great horses, people, accomodation, and food. The "real"deal. I was picked up from Kunununarra and returned at the end of the week. Travelling solo was easy and a chance to meet other guests easily. Highly recommend.

After another amazing trip this time to Diggers Rest Station in the Kimberley- I have been inspired to write another 5 star review. Alida and Roderick are your typical station owners who are hard-working, friendly and courteous with everyone and are true ‘salt of the earth’ people. As a consequence the cattle muster that I went on was faultless. Now don’t misunderstand me there were negatives but if you embrace the busyness and chaos of a cattle drive whilst taking a relaxing technology detox then my expectations were managed perfectly. The facilities were basic but sufficient. The food was rustic with home-style camp food cooking. A variety of horses were available to suit differing levels of riding ability and the atmosphere was great. Do I recommend this place? Absolutely. The remoteness of this location is part of the charm along with the hosts willingness to ensure you have an authentic once in a lifetime trip.

If you want to experience what it is like to live in the Kimberley, then this the place for you. Our family of three spent a couple of really enjoyable days being looked after by Alida and her staff. After riding horses through ruggedly beautiful country in the morning, you can choose to read quietly and soak up the serenity (without the Bonnie Doone powerlines), or jump in your 4WD and go exploring. Once the sun starts to set, it is well worth the short drive out to the airfield, to watch the front of the Cockburn Ranges transition through a range of soft pastel colours, as the sun sinks below the western horizon. For those who avail themselves of the short twilight, there is an opportunity to check out the vast expanse of dark purple sky, identify constellations and spot shooting stars. Once the sun has fully retired for the evening, it’s back to the station house for a hearty meal, a few beers or red wines and a chat with the other like minded guests.

Our family of three enjoyed three magical nights at Diggers Rest, in a bunk house room. We loved the early morning horse rides through spectacular country, and the lovely evenings around the fire, before satisfying home cooked evening meals. It was a great experience of Wyndham and I would certainly recommend it. Thank you Alida for your wonderful hospitality.

The hotel is perfect for the convention centre but be aware that its some way out of town (allow 45 mins - 1 hour to get into the town centre, and 15 minutes to the airport). Good things: Location adjoining the convention centre; lovely spacious room; spotless cleanliness; good desk for working (including handy stationery items in desk drawer); a balcony for some rest air. Reception staff very helpful and welcoming. Very quiet at night. Only a few less good things: breakfast buffet area not efficiently managed - a lot of servers bumbling around but often there were no napkins on tables and sparse cutlery. The dishes of bacon and eggs etc were usually only just warm rather than hot. If I went to another convention at Yuelai I would definitely stay here again. Happy to recommend.

I think you must have our station stay and horse riding business confused with another business, as we are not a convention centre.
