Kununurra puts you at the heart of the East Kimberley action. Take a helicopter flight over one of the world's most unique ranges - the Bungle Bungle Range. Cruise the wildlife rich waters of a manmade lake so huge it's classed as an inland sea. Follow in the tracks of pioneering legends along the Gibb River Road, chase the mighty barramundi, or gain a true connection to country with one of the oldest surviving cultures on Earth.
From Perth, it's a three hour flight to Kununurra. Or, you can fly into Broome from Sydney, Melbourne or Brisbane and take the sealed road or short flight east to Kununurra.
Those keen to make the journey part of the adventure should hit the trail of Australia's most unique four wheel drive experience - the Gibb River Road - leading you 660 kilometres through spectacular wilderness.
While Kununurra is a relatively young outback town, it sits on ancient lands and takes its name from the local Indigenous word meaning 'big water'. Today, the waters and wetlands of Lake Kununurra and neighbouring Lake Argyle - the largest manmade lake in the southern hemisphere - make it a mecca for water sports and wildlife enthusiasts, with many cruising, fishing and canoeing tours available.
To the south lies the captivating Bungle Bungle Range of World Hertiage listed Purnululu National Park. More than 350 million years in the making and remaining hidden from the world until 1983, it's one of the best kept secrets in history.
Closer to town is Mirima National Park (often referred to as the mini Bungle Bungle Range), along with 600 million year old Zebra Rock, Kelly's Knob Lookout (the top spot for sunsets) and the local's favourite summer swimming hole, Black Rock Falls.
