Being the largest Indigenous managed tourism resort in Western Australia, with 65% local Indigenous staff and growing, you can expect a truly unique, immersive Indigenous tourism experience.

For those who enjoy exploration at their own pace, Home Valley Station offers seven distinct self-guided walking trails, that will give you a glimpse into the rare beauty only found in the Kimberley wilderness.

One of these – the Balanggarra Home Valley Tour – turns back time to walk you through the history of Home Valley Station, taking you to key locations around the station, such as the Cockburn lookout, and venturing across Pentecost River for a breathtaking view over the Balanggarra landscape.
