Ord Valley Muster gets underway this weekend

It’s not a question of what you can do at the Ord Valley Muster – it’s what you can’t do.

If you want to experience Australian country music, a cattle station, a real outback muster, an aboriginal art rock tour, visit a diamond mine, watch a bunking bronc (horse) and more then you need to get up to Kununurra in northern Western Australia now!

The annual Ord Valley Muster gets underway this weekend (May 25) and will run for 10 fabulous days (until June 3) showcasing the art, culture, landscapes, sports and pursuits of the Kimberley.

This is a magnificent region that should be on your “must visit” places in Australia. Sure it’s a long way away and maybe harder to get to than other places, but that’s what also makes it so worthwhile. This is a land of beautiful gorges to swim in, huge cattle ranches you can visit and amazing countryside with wetlands and simply incredible rocky formations. We guarantee you’ll fall in love with the Kimberly!
