Activities and Attractions
Untamed and adventurous Kununurra is the gateway to some of Western Australia’s remarkable natural attractions.
With sizzling red soil, wide open blue skies and rugged bush scenery, this place will enliven your senses.
Well located about a three hour flight north of Perth, it’s the gateway to the East Kimberley. Although Kununurra is a fairly young town, it sits on an ancient landscape where early Aboriginal tribes roamed. In fact, the word Kununurra means ‘big water’ in the language of the Aboriginal locals.
From here visit Purnululu National Park and the Bungle Bungles range, Lake Argyle, Mitchell Plateau, Ord River and Argyle Diamond Mine.
Journey through a landscape of gorges, waterfalls and cattle stations the size of small European countries.
Tours can be booked through our friendly staff. We highly recommend the popular Go-wild Eco-noeing trips down the Ord River, a beautiful once in a lifetime experience. Canoe up the Ord River for a few days, stopping to camp at beautiful sites overlooking the river that feature sleeping platforms, running water, and gas cookers.
Kununurra has a tropical monsoonal climate with two distinct seasons. The ‘wet’ season occurs from about October to April, when most of the annual rainfall occurs and maximum temperatures increase into the 40’s. The remainder of the year is known as the ‘dry’, with clear blue skies, day temperatures in the 30’s and relatively cool nights. This is the peak tourist season.
