Book early for Easter Escape
The end of the wet season - late March to April - is a great time to visit the Kimberley, with gushing waterfalls at their peak, an abundance of Barramundi, and spectacular sunsets. You can do it all, and see it all at its finest!
An experience you won't ever forget is cruising by boat to WA’s highest waterfall, the twin King George Falls. Feel dwarfed by red rock cliffs rising more than 80 metres into the air. Then take a fresh waterfall shower as the boat edges to within metres of the rock face.
The cruise is fully inclusive in every package and is not offered by any other land-based accommodation in the region.
Along the way, enjoy the exhilaration of Barramundi fishing, courtesy of the wet season’s run-off and warm waters.
Get in now to secure your booking early. Why not book for Easter?

Kimberley named top travel spot by New York Times
WA’s remote Kimberley region has been named by the New York Times as one of the best places in the world to visit in 2013.
The Kimberley was the only Australian destination to earn a place in the ‘Top 46 Places to Go’ list, taking out the number 19 position.

Nicolle Kidman talks Kununurra with Ellen
Ellen DeGeneres is bringing her US talk show to Australia in March. The announcement came following an interview with Nicole Kidman, who recommended Kununurra as her favourite place to visit.
Nicole visited with co-star Hugh Jackman during filming of Baz Luhrmann’s movie ‘Australia’, for which Faraway Bay was one of only two locations used as a base for the crew. During production, scenes were shot of our nearby natural wonder, the King George Falls.
The movie put the Kimberley region on the world map, and even our water became famous! It became known as a ‘pregnancy potion’ after Nicole Kidman unexpectedly fell pregnant with her baby daughter Sunday Rose during production.
