Lake Argyle and Lake Kununurra 

Lake ArgyleWe had seen and heard a lot about Lake Argyle, but timing of a few things meant that we didn’t have time to stay there, so we decided to take a quick drive out there from Kununurra to see it.

This huge freshwater man-made lake is the largest in WA and second largest in Australia.  It was formed by the damning of the Ord River. It was about 70km out of Kununurra, so a relatively quick drive which meant we could get out there and still be back in time for our cruise at 2.45pm.

This place was great and we could see straight away why so many people rave about Lake Argyle.As always, the photos don’t show how great this was.

We also called into the The Lake Argyle Resort (and then wished we had of had time to spend a few days camping there!). They have the most amazing infinity pool which you don’t expect to see in a location like that!  


Lake Kununurra Sunset Dinner CruiseWe decided to book in for a BBQ sunset dinner cruise on Lake Kununurra.

We paid $85 per person for about a 3 hour cruise including nibbles and a delicious BBQ dinner of steak, barramundi, bread, salads, dessert, beer, wine and soft drinks.We were picked up and dropped off to our caravan park so it made for a nice relaxing evening.  We cruised out through Lily Creek and then out into the open waters of Lake Kununurra.Just prior to sunset we turned towards the Diversion Dam and this was the perfect position for some great sun set photos. Dinner was served in a location called Packsaddle Lagoon and this was just as picturesque. This cruise was definitely worth the money, the staff were great, friendly and informative, and the meal was awesome. Highly recommend this cruise and this company to anyone travelling through the area.
