On arrival, guests are provided refreshments as their hosts escort each guest to their Grass Castle – Home Valley’s premium level of accommodation. Time to explore the Homestead surrounds or simply rest on the veranda with a cool drink enjoying views over the idyllic Bindoola Creek. All guests are provided their own Adventure Schedule detailing their activities for the ensuing four days. Dinner tonight is in the Dusty Bar & Grill, enjoying authentic Kimberley entertainment.
Breakfast is served as room service on your private veranda or within the Dusty Bar & Grill Restaurant prior to a half-day over-water adventure, exploring the mighty Pentecost River and west arm of the Cambridge Gulf. Guests are welcomed aboard an HV8 marine craft to begin their hunt for barramundi or simply to take in the raw beauty of the Kimberley’s prolific wildlife. This half-day Guided Tour departs early morning and incorporates a delicious morning tea served at a private and picturesque location. The adventure continues on before returning to the Homestead in time for lunch. Departure times may vary in accordance to the changing tides, ensuring the best chance of a successful fishing trip.
After lunch and a relaxing siesta it is time to take an invigorating dip in the rock pools beneath the enchanting Bindoola Falls. Relax and enjoy while having a yarn with your HV8 Guide, returning in time to refresh and change for dinner which is served at the Homestead’s Dusty Bar & Grill. Guests enjoy pre-dinner drinks at the Dusty Bar before dining al fresco, selecting their meals from the à la carte menu.
After dinner, guests are often treated to bush poetry recitals, live local entertainment along with nightly campfire entertainment of any number of local and authentic varieties.
Breakfast is at leisure today, at which time your guide will present a list of activity options available on this day prior to lunch. Why not try a scenic two hour horse ride? Guests may also elect to simply relax by the pool and enjoy the grounds of the Station.
Lunch is served at the Dusty Bar & Grill with some time to rest before the adventure continues. Today’s afternoon activity is an exciting “rock-hopping” bush walk that leads guests into the Bindoola Gorge to reveal the thriving aquatic ecosystem beneath ancient sandstone cliffs.
Upon returning to their room guests have time to relax and refresh in climate-controlled comfort ahead of their exquisite Champagne Sunset Tour at the private HV8 Lookout.
