Argyle Downs Homestead Museum

Galleries, Museums and Collections

The Argyle Downs Homestead Museum offers a fascinating insight into the lives of the early pioneers in the Kimberley. Walk through the 1890s former home of the Durack family, who were a prominent farming family.

Learn about the Durack’s gruelling two year journey across the continent, travelling from their original home in Queensland all the way to Kununurra with 2,000 head of cattle. Discover the hardships encountered in establishing the first cattle station in the region, which grew to become a successful and productive business.

Whilst the original homestead was built in the 1890s and sat on the Argyle Downs Station, it had to be moved in the 1970s following plans for the construction of Lake Argyle. It was carefully dismantled and reconstructed stone by stone at its’ present site.

Argyle Downs Homestead Museum is a 1 hour drive south of Kununurra. Kununurra is a 3 hour flight north of Perth.
