Well its official!!!!!!

Our Bungle Bungle Combo Tour is now running again for 2020 with Aviair.

Encounter two of the Kimberley’s greatest icons in one day – Purnululu (the Bungle Bungles) and Lake Argyle. Begin with a two hour scenic flight enjoying a bird’s eye view of the World Heritage listed Bungle Bungles, Lake Argyle (including the diamond mine) and the Ord River irrigation area. Take in the breathtaking scenery of the Carr Boyd Ranges, the Osmand Ranges, the Ord River and the Bow River.

The countryside of the eastern Kimberley is colourful and vast, so viewing it from the comfort of your air-conditioned, high wing aircraft allows for a truly unique perspective.

We’ll land back in Kununurra and board a coach to Lake Argyle, travelling through stunning eastern Kimberley scenery and stopping at the historic Durack Homestead Museum before saying ‘ahoy’ to our Captain and heading out on the water.

Get ready for some good times and tan lines as we cruise through ‘the Heads’, visiting an array of wildlife along the way. Sit back and relax as you learn the colourful history of Lake Argyle and its surrounding areas.

Finally pull up as the sun sets and the sky turns orange, we’ll raise our glasses to an unforgettable day in the eastern Kimberley with complimentary champagne, beer and nibbles.

It’s finally happening!!! 🎉CONFIRMED: The Kimberley region will reopen to the rest of Western Australia at midnight tonight.

The Federal Government has agreed to the State Government’s request to remove the Commonwealth Biosecurity restrictions, meaning the Kimberley, Shire of Ngaanyatjarraku and parts of the East Pilbara will reopen to all Western Australians tomorrow.

From tomorrow - Friday, 5 June (11.59pm Thursday, 4 June) the biosecurity areas declared under the Commonwealth Biosecurity Act 2015 will be removed, however access to remote communities will remain restricted under the State Government’s Emergency Management Act.

Removing regional travel restrictions in WA, including the restrictions in the Kimberley, has been part of a staged and carefully planned roadmap for Western Australia.

I want to thank the Kimberley community for their patience and understanding throughout this process, it’s been extremely difficult for many people and many small businesses.

The State Government is continuing to engage with Aboriginal leaders on the future of the travel restrictions into remote communities and additional ways to keep remote communities free from COVID-19.

With the Kimberley reopen to visitors from our state, I would encourage every Western Australian to enjoy all of what our great State has to offer, and support local and regional businesses in the process.

This is another significant step in our roadmap to recovery. Phase 3 of our roadmap will come into effect this Saturday, allowing even greater opportunities for people to get out and about.

“Cannot thank Mitch our skipper and Lake Argyle Cruises enough for our wonderful cruise on the lake on Saturday. A private group trip was organised for our family after we couldn’t get on one of their fully booked tours and we had a brilliant time- swimming, wildlife spotting and gaining some great information from Mitch on the lake and it’s surrounds. I highly recommend anyone visiting Kununurra to do one of the cruises with this company, it was a great experience for our family and the kids (little and big!) loved it.”

Katrina Zanelli Evans

“Lake Argyle Cruises was a massive highlight from our trip through the Kimberley’s. Fantastic staff, accommodating, informative and to top it off, a magical sunset accompanying a champagne. Our kids had a beaut time as did we.”

Justin and Bec Lorrimer , Trip In A Van

“AMAZING !! Greg and his family are the best at giving you an experience you wont forget. Highly recommend – choose the guys that know you wont be disappointed!!”

Alice Skilton

“An incredible experience, definitely one to put on your bucket list if it isn’t already. The weather was hot and the beer was cold, Greg’s knowledge and hospitality was amazing. Thanks again to all the team!”

Belinda Gibbons

“We decided on the sunset cruise. It was a good cruise that became great with the commentary and knowledge of our guide. It became magnificent when we stopped and could jump in the lake to enjoy a champers, beer and floating nibbles watching the sun set all whilst sitting on pool noodles floating in the middle of the pristine Lake Argyle. Travelling back to the landing in the dark was exciting and mystic. Well worth it. Highly recommend it.”

Mandy-Lou

“SUNSET CRUISE…..Wow, what an amazing experience, one we will never forget. We were blessed to be the only group on the boat so had an ‘exclusive tour’ (but this is a smaller boat than the other company so less people anyway). Mitch was our guide, he was awesome, very friendly and knowledgeable of the area, he let the kids have a drive of the boat and pick some tunes to have a dance to when they got bored of the history. We stopped to feed the rock wallabies, wallaroos, fish and got upclose and personal with a freshie. We also got the first rain of the season while on the lake…..magical! Highly recommend.”
