Our ‘hot tip’ is to make sure you allow yourself the time to visit – there is so much to see and do! Kununurra is an adventure destination and activities range from walking, hiking, flying, fishing, strolling, swimming and of course, cruising! The team at Triple J Tours have put together these ‘Ordsome Adventures’ to ensure that you get the most from your time in our spectacular Kimberley region.
Ordsome Adventure #1
Familiarise yourself with our home town. Take a drive around the valley to see the agriculture, Ivanhoe Crossing, Mirima National Park (Hidden Valley), Kelly’s Knob lookout and drop into places like Kimberley Ornamental Stonecraft, the Hoochery Distillery, The Sandalwood Factory, diamond shops, art galleries and cafes along the way.
Ordsome Adventure #2
Up bright and early and take a flight over the Bungle Bungle with one of our local aviation companies (2 hour flight) before joining us for one of our #ordsome cruising adventures. You can combine a cruise with a flight for a discounted rate – see CJ2/3/4, BLJ and BAC tour combos.
Ordsome Adventure #3
Hit the road and get yourself out along the Gibb River Road for the day – there are many gorges, walks and swimming holes for you to enjoy and restaurants to dine at as well …. seemingly in the middle of nowhere … who would have thought?
Ordsome Adventure #4
The Bungle Bungle is an extraordinary sight to see from the air BUT, we highly recommend that you take a walk amongst the beehive domes via a ground tour. For the complete Bungle Bungle experience, stay overnight.
Ordsome Adventure #5
Spread your wings and fly over the Mitchell Plateau and along the Diamond Coast of the Kimberley. Options include the Mitchell Falls, Berkeley River, Faraway Bay, King George Falls. If you want to be ‘wowed’, then this is the way to do it!
Ordsome Adventure #6
It can sometimes be the thrill of the chase when you head out to catch a Barra! These icons of the north are elusive but to catch one is definitely a bucket list item for the keen fisherman or woman. Go out on a boat with a local fisherman or take to the skies to seek out a more remote and untamed area by helicopter.
Ordsome Adventure #7
Lake Argyle is extraORDinary. The best access to the Lake is via a morning, full day or sunset cruise. There are also options involving landing on the Lake via float plane or helicopter scenic flights. From Lake Argyle, you can also hire a stand-up paddle board or dinghy and the infinity pool has got to be one of the best in the world!
Ordsome Adventure #8
For those with a 4WD, take the Parry Creek Road through to Wyndham. There are many sights to see along the way and you could throw a line in the Lower Ord River to try your luck at catching a Barra. Be aware though – this is saltwater crocodile country. Marlgu Billabong is a bird-lover’s paradise and the Bastion (Five Rivers Lookout) in Wyndham is spectacular.
Ordsome Adventure #9
Go get your photo taken at the WA/NT border – just a 40km drive from Kununurra. While you are out that way, cross the border and enjoy a day at the Keep River National Park. Note: you will need to stop at the quarantine check-point on your way back into WA so remember to only pack what you can eat in the way of fruit, nuts, honey etc or it will be taken from you at the check-point.
Ordsome Adventure #10
Diamonds, diamonds, diamonds! When in the Kimberley, you are spoilt for jewels – Halls Creek gold, Kimberley diamonds and Broome pearls. Day tours are available to the Argyle Diamond Mine and the selection of diamonds and jewellery available in Kununurra is superb.
