Birdwood Downs is one of the smallest working cattle stations in the Kimberley region (4700 acre/1850 ha) but is a pioneer in new ecological methods of improving degraded lands from overgrazing. Groves of native trees showcase its sustainable ecological management and are home to horse and cattle herds. It houses the Kimberley School of Horsemanship which allows training for local youths and includes a horse breeding program.
Overnight options include an unpowered camping site for tents, campervans and camper trailers (no caravans) amongst a grove of shady trees with shared toilets, hot showers, excellent drinking water and a camp kitchen with a gas barbeque. To ensure the serenity of the site, no dogs or generators allowed. For those looking for a little more comfort, Savannah huts built from Kimberley stone with double or twin beds and shared toilets and showers offer an alternative in the beautiful gardens of the homestead.
