Home Valley Station

"We are all visitors to this time, this place. We are just passing through. Our purpose here is to observe, to learn, to grow and then we return home."

- Australian Aboriginal Proverb.

Home Valley Station is a 248,934 hectare outback oasis, so settle in and discover Australia’s last frontier.

Once a working cattle station and now a premium tourism destination and Indigenous training facility, Home Valley is brimming with natural attractions all of which can be experienced from the comfort of the resort facilities. From the first glance of the famous HV8 Gate to meeting ‘Moo’ our resident cow that loves a bickie. From live music and delicious food at the Dusty Bar & Grill to hearing the stories of the Station's heritage or a chance to catch the elusive big barra. Home Valley feels like your home away from home, where everyone is part of the family.

Home Valley Station is managed by Voyages Indigenous Tourism Australia a subsidiary of the Indigenous Land and Sea Corporation (ILSC). The Indigenous Land and Sea Corporation (ILSC) purchased Home Valley Station along with Karunjie Station and Durack River Station on behalf of the Balanggarra people (Home Valley Station) and the Nyaliga people (Karunjie and Durack River Stations) of the East Kimberley, who are the traditional owners. Home Valley Station managers and staff are responsible for the cultural and business diversification of all three Stations, providing each with a viable business future while working with individual traditional owner groups to ensure sustainable outcomes are achieved which will benefit and respect their culture and way of life.

The Station hosts an onsite training program for Indigenous men and women from the region who are studying tourism, hospitality and a range of pastoral operations. These traineeships make Home Valley a centre of learning where practical skills are taught in the course of a normal day on the property and they are an integral part of the resort operation. Trainees live and work alongside the Home Valley team learn through participating in every aspect of the Station - whether that is housekeeping, food and beverage service, guest services or tour guiding.
