Welcome to the Hotel Kununurra. Offering friendly and personalised Kimberley style hospitality, the Kununurra Hotel has long been an integral part of Kununurra and today still remains an important meeting place for the community. Locally known as ‘The Pub’, the property was built when Kununurra was first established in the early 1960’s to service the Ord Irrigation Scheme.

The Hotel Kununurra is centrally located in the heart of town, close to all amenities such as Coles, the Post Office, the local pool and leisure centre. It has a bottle shop, several bars, a great restaurant and entertainment almost every night. The hotel offers a very comfortable standard of accommodation with fully equipped rooms that are tastefully decorated. We have a range of option to suit different budgets from the well priced single bed or twin rooms to the recently refurbished Premium Suites.

Kununurra is the stepping off point to the many attractions in the East Kimberley including the Ord River, the famous Bungle Bungles (Purnululu National Park) and the magnificent attractions around Lake Argyle, a 70km drive away. There are a vast range of touring options and many easy day trips that can be taken using your own car. Let us help you plan your itinerary, or you may like to visit the Kununurra Visitor Centre once you have arrived.

Kununurra enjoys two ‘seasons’. The dry season from May to September is our busiest time so if you are planning a visit during these months please ensure you book your accommodation in advance. From October to March the town is a little quieter and a lot hotter! There is still plenty to do but make sure you plan around the temperatures which can reach 38 – 40 degrees during this time. Luckily at this time of year we usually enjoy rain and activities can be planned that include waterholes, waterfalls and swimming.

El Questro Wilderness Park offers unrivalled access to the far reaches of the Kimberley. Go barramundi fishing, set out on a horse trek, or explore remote areas by helicopter that only a lucky few have ever seen. Boating along the Chamberlain Gorge is also a must - a magnificent fresh waterhole bound by tropical vegetation and belittled by towering 200 foot escarpments.

Wild donkeys, goannas, sea eagles, brolgas, jabirus and brightly coloured parrots thrive in the Kimberley region. A day spent with a Ranger will introduce you to a wide variety of animals, birds and maybe even a saltwater crocodile!

At El Questro Wilderness Park, you can choose from three types of accommodation, each different in style and budget, including Emma Gorge Resort at El Questro with its tented cabins, the comfortable Station Bungalows at the heart of El Questro Wilderness Park and Riverside Camping, where you can opt for a central campsite close to amenities or one of the private sites just 10 minutes away.

Description

On the north-west corner of the Australian continent, there is a place so remote, so far away from anywhere, it’s called Faraway Bay.

Time appears to stand still. When it does move, it's measured in tides and sunsets.

Faraway Bay, The Bush Camp is a truly unique retreat, nestled on a rocky hilltop overlooking the Timor Sea, in the remote Kimberley Region.

It’s an intimate escape that feels like the edge of forever.

Here, a few days can feel like a week, and a week can change the way you feel forever.

On offer is remarkable natural beauty, isolation and history – all set in a remote slice of outback Australia. 

Ease into nature’s rhythm.  Relax.  Explore.  Relax some more

A Rare Kimberley Encounter

Cruise to the spectacular twin falls on the King George River and feel dwarfed by red rock cliffs that rise more than 50 metres into the air.  When the falls are flowing it’s time for an invigorating fresh waterfall shower as the Tender boat edges up to the rock face.  Go fishing in tidal creeks and catch an elusive barramundi. 

There’s always time to explore - learn about bush tucker; go bird watching, beach combing or swimming in pristine water holes; and discover ancient rock art perhaps 15-20,000 years old. 

Evening entertainment begins as the last rays dance across the rocks and water in a kaleidoscope of colour. Stargaze until dawn or drift off to the soothing sounds of waves lapping the shore.

Fresh Local Fare

Guests wake up each morning to birdsong and enjoy breakfast in the open air ‘Eagle Lodge’, perfect for lounging, dining and daydreaming.

Eagle Lodge is surely Australia's most unusual kitchen and spectacular dining room. Here, you can feast on freshly caught wild barramundi, mangrove jacks, and reef fish, home-baked bread and exotic, sun-ripened fruit and vegetables picked and flown in from Kununurra's Ord River - all enjoyed with fine Western Australian wine or beer. 

You also have access to tea, coffee, food and wine at any time. Snack on one of the chefs freshly baked biscuits, fresh fruit or cheese and biscuits, and enjoy the chefs picnics on selected excursions.

A Private Escape

While the wildlife is prolific, the neighbours are not.  With a maximum of twelve guests at any time privacy is ensured.  Not surprisingly, Faraway Bay is popular with couples and honeymooners.

Simple, Comfortable Accommodation

Although simple Faraway Bay provides unrivalled luxury for a bush camp, with eight spacious cabins scattered amongst the natural bush setting, offering privacy and 180-degree views of the spectacular cliff-lined bay.

Facilities

    * Our plunge pool is refreshed constantly by crystal clear spring-fed water, and you'll be equally revived by its 360 degree views of the spectacular coastline and ranges.
    * Tee-off at our cliff top one-hole golf course.
    * Our laundry is available for your use.

  • Capacity:12,21 - 50

Description

Isolation:

A benchmark for wilderness development with access only by helicopter, it would be hard to find a place that intrudes less on its surroundings. As you step onto the white beach ‘doorstep’ at Kimberley Coastal Camp, you feel like you are one of very few people for hundreds of kilometers. You are. In keeping with our remoteness, we accommodate a maximum of only 8-12 so you are never just 'one of the crowd', but honoured guests in an intimate atmosphere where your needs are paramount; not the demands of a pre-set itinerary.

The Creature Comforts

KCC has many amenities not usually expected in remote locations. Your ‘room with a view’ has a king double bed (or twin singles), 24 hour electric light, flyscreens, curtains for shade and privacy and a big ceiling fan. Our unique private bathrooms are built against a huge natural rock wall. One guest dubbed them the most photographed loos in the west.

Bella is passionate about food and it shows. Based on lots of fresh ingredients, homemade breads and often your own “catch of the day”, her meals are famous in the Kimberley for both their quality and quantity. We can cater for special diets on request.

Fishing

Kimberley Coastal Camp offers a luxurious alternative to other fishing camps. With a choice of fishing from 5.0 m tenders or Warabi, our 7.5 m purpose built and surveyed vessel, we have all the options covered.

Spend your days fishing for the fabled barramundi in a mangrove creek or out in the clear water chasing queenfish, mackerel or tuna. Anchor off a coral reef to catch a coral trout or bluebone – or just relax in the shade and watch the action. Because we live here, Rocky and the fishing guides know all the secret spots.

Rock Art

Kimberley Coastal Camp is at the centre of one of the world’s finest repositories of indigenous rock paintings – many only a short walk from the camp or the boat. Marvel at the elegant and ancient Gwion Gwion (Bradshaw) paintings whose origins are lost in time. Sit in a cave decorated with thousands of tiny paintings – and others guarded by huge Wandjinas with their radiating headdresses. Visit ceremonial sites which continue to have great significance to our traditional landowners. We are incredibly fortunate to have access to these extraordinary sites which remain untouched by the ravages of uncontrolled visitors or vandalism.

Walking

We have established a number of walking tracks from the camp, which cater for everything from a gentle stroll to a challenging all day hike. Billabongs, caves, birds, wildlife and rock art are all a feature. A short cruise by boat from the camp are numerous untouched beaches and islands where guests can go ashore and explore, picnic under a boab tree, find a special shell or piece of coral, or just enjoy the view. Walks are fully guided by our knowledgeable staff.

Birds, Wildlife and the Stunning Landscape

Because of our unique location, we have access to a number of different habitats - either by land or sea – so you can get to know the local birds, wildlife, bush tucker and medicines first hand. KCC is an ideal base for keen birdwatchers, naturalists, painters and photographers. The opportunities are endless for anyone with an eye for an unusual or stunning shot. Just tell us what you are after and we’ll help you find it.

How to get there?

Kimberley Coastal Camp is located on the eastern side Admiralty Gulf near the Mitchell Plateau in the far north Kimberley region of Western Australia. We have no road access and all our guests fly in by chopper from the Mitchell Plateau. This flight in itself is often one of our guests’ most memorable moments!

If you are driving up to the Mitchell Plateau, packages include helicopter transfers from the Plateau to land on the beach at KCC.

Most of our guests choose a package which includes light aircraft flights from Kununurra (minimum 2), Broome or Darwin (4, 8 or 12 passengers) to the Mitchell Plateau – followed by the chopper “taxi”.

Packages Include:

Accommodation and all meals (see Creature Comforts above)

Fully guided activities. We don’t have any pre-set itineraries because all our guests are different. You can choose from fishing, bush walking, exploring deserted islands and beaches, visiting ancient rock art sites, learning about our natural and cultural history – or a combination of all or some of these.

Scenic air transfers by light plane and/or helicopter from your choice of departure point.

Fishing tackle is supplied on a replace if lost basis – or you are welcome to bring your own favourite gear.

Alcoholic drinks. So you get exactly what you prefer to drink, we ask you choose from our comprehensive beverage list on booking. We have this delivered to the Camp and in the fridge for your arrival. This is a complimentary service charged ‘at cost’, usually ending up cheaper than hotel or restaurant prices.

When to come to Kimberley Coastal Camp:

We are open during the Kimberley dry season from late March to September each year.

If our great fishing is a major attraction try to come during neap tides, usually the best fishing tides at KCC. Briefly, if you are coming for say 6 nights then aim at arriving about 5 days after a full or new moon. We have all the details so just ask. The best barramundi fishing is traditionally just after the wet season in April and May. However, we still catch the elusive barra right through the season - along with all those other tropical species the Kimberley is famous for.

If walking and exploring is more your thing, then June, July and August are cooler with temps in the low 30s during the day (until the beautiful cool sea breeze arrives around lunchtime) and getting down under 20 at night.

Availability

We accommodate very few guests so you get to experience our beautiful patch of remote wilderness without meeting hundreds of other people - and feeling like the wilderness has disappeared somewhere else. Our priority is also to maintain the pristine nature of the country and minimise our ecological footprint.

Availability depends on how many in your group and how long you wish to stay. If you are interested in finding out about specific dates (or a range of dates) please send us some details and we’ll be happy to help. Remember that the good fishing tides get booked out very early and cancellations are rare events!

Description

Halls Creek is on the Great Northern Highway between Kununurra (360kms to the north) and Fitzroy Crossing (280kms to the west). If you are travelling through the Kimberley between Kununurra and Broome, the Kimberley Hotel should be incorporated into your outback adventure or business trip.

The four star Kimberley Hotel is conveniently located adjacent to the local airport and approximately 500 metres from the town centre.

Rooms range from the Standard rooms, featuring a Queen and Single Bed, to the brand new Corporate Rooms, specially designed for the business market. Our deluxe rooms are extremely spacious and the Family Rooms are a combination of two deluxe rooms with an interconnecting door.

An interesting and innovative Kimberley building style of high roofs and wide verandahs is evident as you move into the Kimberley Hotel's spacious interior. Watch for the Brahmin-hide facings and the extensive use of exposed jarrah timbers salvaged from the old Fremantle Woolstores.

The hotel is a comfortable base to explore the surrounding goldfields, Wolf Creek Meteorite Crater or the famous Bungle Bungles (Purnululu National Park). Depending on the time of year you might also like to visit Palm Springs, Sawtooth Gorge and the China Wall.

Halls Creek was once the hub of a gold rush in the late 1800's and is now a quiet country town, although some say the smell of gold fever lingers on. Prospectors still visit and live here and further inland at Old Halls Creek, the original site of the township. It's a great spot to buy a golden souvenir that is literally 'worth its weight in gold'.

Once a habitat that was subject to the cycles of the wet and dry seasons, now this massive expanse of permanent fresh water has allowed a thriving ecosystem to develop.

The magnificent scenery and peaceful isolation make Lake Argyle a must see destination when visiting the Kimberley! Lake Argyle Resort & Caravan Park is the perfect base camp for the ultimate Kimberley Adventure through this unique wilderness.
