We're a small family business, sharing a real bush experience with you. Laid back relaxed, no stress, enjoy a break from your reality.
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 have been joined by family friend, Max. From a humble beginning in the Adelaide Hills starting as a truck driver, to over 20 years experience in tour guiding across the Top End, Kimberley, east and west coast, from small 4WD adventure tours to enormous first class coaches (Bushside Coaches). Max has done it all, looking for travel advice he is your man. Max has passed in the high roller life for an untouched bush paradise. For a big fella he certainly has a soft spot for sunsets and has a number of special friends you will meet on the Wildlife Sunset Safari. Max has been widely noted as the most eligible bachelor this side of the Spinifex and has a real weakness for chocolate mud cake.
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.
Kim, Ruth, Opal and Max
Welcome you all to our special place.
