Well worth the visit

Considering the end of the season was fast approaching what made this stay most memorable was the staff. They were delightful, helpful and a very happy working group of young people. My wife and I arrived for only 2 nights and as we were somewhat limited

El Questro Wilderness Park

An eco-holiday destination, this million-acre park is located in the heart of the unspoiled Kimberley region.

Beautiful scenery, not easy to access

The wilderness park is recommended 4WD access only, and many of the gorges need high clearance 4WD with a snorkel to access as there's a deep water crossing (there are 2 shallower water crossings to get to the campsite - a small vehicle might not make it

Mini Bungle Bungles

We stayed in the caravan park next to this wonderful NP (and gained free entry!). I hiked early morning and late afternoon when the colours were alive. A great National Park, known as the Mini Bungle Bungles due to similar colours and dome like rocks.

Sunset cruising

Chanced on this camp only by speaking to a couple who stayed here the previous night. We were not disappointed. This is a working mine of rock I had never heard of before. The camp is grassed and unpowered but generators are allowed between 8-8. Ruth is f

Well worth the hot and sweaty climb

Views from this lookout point are 360 degree and well worth the effort. Really good way to get a good practical overview of how the lake, dam and irrigation system has been developed. Can also see right across the town and the mini bungle bungle like nati

Hoochery Distillery

Built on the Dessert family farm just outside of Kununurra, the small pot distillery was created entirely by hand. Everything, from the still to the building itself, was crafted from materials found around the farm. Spike even taught himself to distil, with nothing more than a passion to make good, honest rum. After 25 years, nothing’s changed. Made from Australian sugarcane, wet season rainwater, and yeast, our Ord River Rum’s still made by hand. It’s vat-fermented, pot-distilled, painstakingly aged in oak barrels, and hand-bottled by us. The 300-litre oak barrels naturally colour and flavour our rum, giving you a smooth, tropical flavour, with an oaky finish. Come out for tastings of our Award-winning rums or for our delicious home-made cakes. Better yet from May onwards until Mid-September come out and enjoy one of our yummy lunches while relaxing in our beer garden. We are well worth the drive (15km out of town along Weaber Plains Road)
