Dream holiday by the lake
JUST across from where the Northern Territory meets Western Australia is the country’s largest body of freshwater and the ‘jewel’ of the Kimberley.
The Lake Argyle Caravan Park boasts over 100 lush green sites and there is plenty of room and shade now that the bulk of the tourists have moved on.
They offer late checkout in the caravan park from October to March so you can check in for the night and stay until sunset the following day. If you book on one of the Kimberley Durack Lake Cruises through the wet season, your second night in the caravan park or camp ground will be complimentary. If you are not planning to stay the night, the team at Lake Argyle also offer a complimentary resort-day pass to their stunning Infinity Pool for all Kimberley Durack Cruise passengers.
There is a selection of comfortable air-conditioned accommodation options to choose from.
Currently they are offering every second night free until the March 27, 2018 (excluding December 23 to January 2). This offer includes one, two and four-bedroom Lake View Villas or their one and twobedroom Kimberley Cabins. The four-bedroom Grand Villas are perfectly set up for a couple of families or up to 10 friends for a weekend in paradise.
The sunset cruise on the Kimberley Durack is a great way to spend an afternoon. Let their staff show you around while you take in the stunning East Kimberley landscape.
At sunset you can jump in for a swim, without the fear of saltwater crocodiles or stingers, and relax in pure freshwater with a glass of sparkling or an icy cold beer. There is access to the lake for those who have their own boats and the spectacular Ord River Gorges is just one kilometre from the resort and caravan park.
Open all year round, this massive inland sea is open to all kinds of recreational activities including fishing, cruising, camping or just pulling up at an island for a barbecue or drink.
With an average capacity of over 19 Sydney Harbours, you are bound to find your own private beach somewhere to chill out and relax in.
There are several bush- walks accessible from the resort for all levels of fitness, from a short 10-minute walk down to the lake to 5km return hikes for amazing lookouts over the cove and beyond.
There are 4WD tracks and there should be, before long, waterfalls that will be easily accessible by road or kayak.
Paddle boards and kayaks are available for hire at the resort.
The popular Infinity Pool is at a perfect spot to sit back and relax during the day and to watch the sunset in the evening.
Barbecue facilities are avail- able or the restaurant is open daily, except for Christmas Day, for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
The Lake Argyle Team are ready and waiting to welcome you to their backyard just across the border.
Only a day’s drive from Darwin and just 7km past the border, you will see a sign for the Lake Argyle turn-off.
If you’re not up for the drive then Kununurra is only a 40minute flight with Airnorth from Darwin, where you can hire a car and drive the 70km on a sealed road out to the resort.
