Located in the East Kimberley region of Western Australia, Kununurra is a renowned hub for outdoor exploration and stunning landscapes. From freshwater lakes and mighty river systems to sprawling savannahs and sandstone ranges, Kununurra is a treasure trove of Australian natural beauty. Its name, derived from the local Aboriginal language, means 'meeting of big waters', a nod to the town's proximity to the confluence of the Ord and Dunham rivers.
While the city itself offers an interesting blend of history and culture, some of Australia's most eminent natural attractions lay just a car drive away. Venture less than an hour's drive out of Kununurra to explore the distinctive bee-hive striped domes of Purnululu National Park, a World Heritage site. For an exceptional fishing adventure, make your way to the Lake Argyle, the largest man-made lake in the Southern Hemisphere just 70km away. Travelling a car drive of around three hours could bring you to the marvel that is the Mirima National Park known as 'mini Bungle Bungle'.
For those interested in the rich history and Aboriginal heritage of the region, the Wyndham town and port located an hour drive from Kununurra should not be missed. The war history of Wyndham is intriguing, and its port is the oldest in the Kimberley region. The journey from Kununurra to each of these locations is as captivating as the destinations themselves, offering a chance to enjoy the magnificent landscapes typical of the wild Kimberley region.
