Birdwood Downs Station

Farmstay in Western Gibb

About 20km from Derby, 2000-hectare Birdwood Downs offers rustic savannah huts, butterflies and basic camping. WWOOFers are welcome and it's also the home of the Kimberley School of Horsemanship, with lessons, riding camps and trail rides ($65 per hour).

There's also a 90-minute sunset ride ($110) complete with bubbly and, for the more experienced rider, a three-hour journey across the marshes of King Sound ($195). If you prefer your horsepower under the hood, try the Savannah Eco Tour ($60), an informative 90-minute 4WD cruise around the property.
