GENERAL INFORMATION ABOUT OUR TOUR
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.
The coach will drop you back to your Kununurra accommodation at around 7pm.
Includes: Complimentary afternoon tea with alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages.

Imagine living in a place where crocodiles outnumber humans; where you’re hours from the coast, but the sea is your front yard (an inland sea, that is); where flocks of birds can number into the tens of thousands; and where each day’s sunset has the potential to be the best you’ve ever seen.
When Greg began operating in 1999, he knew he’d never tire of showing this incredible part of the world to others. Two decades (and thousands of guests later) Lake Argyle Cruises remains the number one choice for exploring this magnificent part of the Kimberley.

Wow the enormity & beauty of lake is amazing! Having already done the flight over for Bungle Bungles; then by boat was amazing! Tour guide was full of knowledge; funny they drop you off for a swim less than 500m from crocodile breeding area! But water is so fresh & relaxing. Nibbles & Champers + Kimberley sunset must do!
Loved the sunset cruise.
We had done a flight over the lake in the morning and then we did the sunset cruise which topped the day off! Absolutely loved it and Greg was a fantastic guide. I did not want to get off the boat!
