The vast, stunning landscapes, remarkable waterways and lush farmland around Kununurra are both surprising and awe-inspiring.

Kununurra is the perfect backdrop for an outback adventure and your gateway to the eastern end of the Gibb River Road.

Allow some time to experience the range of things to see and do in Kununurra and within easy range of the town itself. Kununurra is also a great base to join tours to some of the region’s major attractions, including the Mitchell Falls, the Bungle Bungles and Lake Argyle.
