I came for one night and stayed for 4. You can do very good tours. I did a marsh ride and an eco tour. You can see how pretty the property is, with lots of old boabs and big termite mounts. I’ve learned that they...More

Such a lovely working station with a riding school. Hans, the manager, is the nicest person in the world, will do anything to make you feel welcome. The savannah huts are perfectly appointed and the common outdoor kitchen perfect for a night cooking. Take some...More

Birdwood Downs is a lovely oasis after the Gibb River Road. The Savannah huts are basic but designed to be airy and each hut has a lovely shady garden around it. The nights are alive with sounds - lizards, peacocks, geckos - and the dawn...More

About
Description
Since 1978 Birdwood Downs Station has pioneered new ecological methods of improving degraded lands using stock management, weed control and planting improved grasses. Now the beautiful paddocks with their groves ...More of native trees, spectacular boabs and eucalyptus, serve as a model for sustainable management of the tropical savannah and support our horses and cattle herd. We take sustainability a step further than pasture management. All electric energy requirements are fully fulfilled by solar power. A generator is an emergency backup and has not been used for several years. We achieve that by making balanced choices on electrical equipment. One of the choices is no air-conditioning. Fans do just as well. Our Kimberley School of Horsemanship offers training for all ages in horse care, horse training and riding. Horse trail rides through our paddocks are available for all levels of experience. The School includes a breeding program for Quarab horses. We have a small Droughtmaster cattle herd, which we build up for breeding. With our small scale tourism facility we can share our environment with those who are interested in sustainability and living close to nature. On bush style campground we can have a small number of unpowered sites for tents, campervans and camper trailers (no caravans). We do not allow generators to maintain a natural environment. We also have available a small number Savannah Bungalows, free standing single bedrooms with shared facilities, in the gardens around the homestead. For those interested in our approach to sustainable ecology we have eco tours and horseback trail rides through our paddocks. Birdwood Downs Station is located on the Gibb River Road, only twenty minutes from Derby WA. Less
