THINGS TO SEE AND DO
There's plenty to see and do in Kununurra, here's how we'd spend 5 days here:
Start your adventure in Kununurra with a Triple J Tour - one of the most inspiring tours in Western Australia. Daily cruises navigate a massive 55km stretch of river between Lake Argyle (or the Ord River Dam) and Kununurra. From modern and shaded vessels visitors on board witness an ecological system that has developed from the damming of the Ord River at two locations.
Spend the morning at Mirima National Park, stop for lunch at the Sandalwood Factory set amongst the sandalwood plantations. After lunch pop to the Hoochery Rum Distillery and sample WA's only rum and finish the day with a trip to Ivanhoe Crossing to admire the view.
Relax in the morning and then take an afternoon sunset cruise on Lake Argyle. With rugged red cliffs reﬂected in the azure blue water, Lake Argyle has become famous for its sunsets. This cruise presents all that you will experience on the Morning Cruise then stays out on the water in an ideal setting to catch the last golden rays of the Kimberley sun.
Take a scenic drive to Wyndham, an hour from Kununurra, admire the breath taking views of the Five Rivers Lookout and stop in at the Wyndham Museum to uncover the history of the area.
