Kununurra – not just a stopover!

Kununurra – not just a stopover! 

Darwin, an exciting and contemporary city. Think Mindl Beach Markets, free waterparks, crocodile farms, a melting pot of cultures with modern city hospitality.

Broome, the caravan capital of Australia. Think Cable Beach, Camels, Stairway to the Moon and saltwater pearls.

In between these two exciting locations lies Kununurra in the #eastkimberley. Often overlooked at the halfway point between two must-do locations on the map we reveal the hidden gems and why the town doesn’t deserve the ‘stopover’ title.

Let’s begin with the things which are truly unique.

Diamonds, many Australians haven’t registered that the world’s biggest diamond in the world is right here in Australia. Producing the world’s rarest and most expensive pink and blue diamonds, the Argyle Diamond Mine is located 200km from the township of Kununurra. Tours to the mine operate during the peak season with www.aviair.com.au and if it’s the final, finished product you want to see look no further than www.kimberleyfinediamonds.com.au to see one of Australia’s largest selections of pink Argyle diamonds.

The local drop? It just so happens to be the best rum in Australia, according to the Australian Distillery Awards. Internationally acclaimed and sure to challenge even the most diehard “bundy fans”, the Hoochery operates the longest continuously operated distillery in Western Australia. Full of character and charm set on a working farm with simply the worlds best rum cake to boot! http://hoochery.com.au/

The theme of biggest and best doesn’t stop now because Lake Argyle will blow you away. The largest reservoir in Australia, this man-made lake straddles the Northern Territory and Western Australian border. Breath-taking beautiful, an absolute abundance of bird and wildlife…. And host to ‘Australia’s Sexiest Pool’ with the Lake Argyle Resort and Caravan Park Infinity Pool. Boat tours operate all year round and as a local, I can tell you the feedback on these tours is solid! https://www.lakeargyle.com/

Kununurra is the starting point to two Australia destination icons – The Gibb River Road and the Bungle Bungle Ranges Purnululu National Park. Whether it’s a quick trip to El Questro to hike one of their multiple gorges including Emma Gorge or the thermal waters of Zebedee Springs. Cross the Iconic Pentecost River towards Home Valley Station and beyond to the Mitchell Falls. And then there is the World Heritage listed Purnululu National Park, the “Bungle Bungles”. Tourism research from visitors to the Kimberley put this range at their number one spot with well-seasoned travellers – definitely a bucket-list item! Don’t forget a stunning walk through Mirima National Park, a tour of the Sandalwood Factory and a drive out to Ivanhoe Crossing.

Scratch the surface and Kununurra, the East Kimberley and all her gifts will deliver! Want more? Have you seen the view from Kimberleyland?? Abundant wildlife, stunning sunsets, resident toothless freshwater croc, Lily Creek Lagoon.... and that view. This year, it's time!
