Fodor's Review

If you've ever fancied being a cowboy (or cowgirl) this massive 3.5-million-acre working cattle farm at the foot of the majestic Cockburn (pronounced co-burn) is the place to do it. Owned and operated by the traditional owners of the land, the Balanggarra people through the Indigenous Land Corporation, you can join a cattle muster or just take a half-day horse trek. Other activities include fishing and 4WD trips. There's a bar and restaurant on-site and a range of accommodations, from stylish bungalows complete with cow-skin rugs, air-conditioning, fully stocked minibar, flat-screen cable TV, huge walk-in rain shower, and resident tree frogs. For those on a tighter budget there's the motel-style guesthouse rooms, eco-tents with a raised wooden floor and queen-size bed, and remote bush camping beside the Pentecost River, 4 km (2½ miles) from the homestead. Transfers from Kununurra cost A$240; A$100 from neighboring El Questro.
