Birdwood Downs Station is a pastoral station of 2500 ha located on the Gibb River Road in the West Kimberley.
Since 1978 it 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 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.
The Kimberley School of Horsemanship offers training for all ages in horse care, horse training and riding. Facilities include a roundyard, rodeo arena and special paddocks for care and foaling. Horse rides are available for all levels of experience. The School includes a breeding program for Quarab horses.
