Banka Banka West Station lies on the traditional land of the Warumungu and Warlmanpa people. In Indigenous culture, it is believed that ancient ancestral beings gave form to the land during the Wirnkarra (Dreamtime). During the Wirnkarra, the important site Punkkurr Punkkurra was created, after which Banka Banka Station was named.

Set among the Barkly Tableland is a sprawling 350,000-acre working cattle station, rich in natural and cultural values. Banka Banka West Station is the perfect place to escape and relax as the sun sets over the landscape. Wake up invigorated and ready to explore the walking trails and lookout points as you deepen your connection with nature and the ancient Australian landscape. Mountain bike riders or trekkers can explore pristine, spring-fed lagoons, rugged ridges and wide, open plains abundant with wildlife and herds of majestic Brahman cattle. By night, sit back and take advantage of the starlit night sky as you gather your loved ones around the crackling camp fire for happy hour and a yarn.

The traditional owners continue to use and enjoy the station, and play an active role in the management of the property. Spend some time learning about traditional uses of their country, or even take a walk to important cultural sites, such as Kajanpurra Waterhole.
