We're a small family business, sharing a real bush experience with you. Laid back relaxed, no stress, kick back and enjoy.
The Zebra Rock Mine, Gallery & Campground began when Kim, the quintessential Kimberley Bushman, met Ruth, the hydrologist from Melbourne. The couple opened to the public as a trial run in 2011, since then the venture has been successful due to word of mouth from travellers that enjoy finding a simple laid-back bush style with world class natural features. These natural features are the Zebra Rock and the secret wetlands that have developed on the NT side of Lake Argyle, a Mecca for wildlife.
This small scale mining operation has required the couple to try a sustainable approach. All rock is cut and manufactured into items from jewellery to tabletops onsite, value adding to stone resource. These products are only available from the Zebra Rock Mine. While the stone types look sensational cut, their true beauty is seen at the mine scale. The couple have set aside areas of the mine leaving sections of the stone naturally occurring in the ground for posterity. These sites have already become popular with geologists from around the world. The patterning of each piece of stone is different, a one off never repeated. Kim and Ruth are working on many ways for everyone to be able to access and enjoy the beauty of this stone.
Kim and Ruth, are lucky to be joined each year by a fantastic fun team. Our latest addition is Opal, a hard one to miss. We all look forward to meeting you and having some fun during your time in the Kimberley and Top End.
