Steeped in Aboriginal history, Kununurra and the East Kimberley Region are home to some of Australia’s most impressive natural attractions, most of which have remained undiscovered until the 1980s. Rock formations stacked impossibly high, painted gorges and thundering waterfalls abound. Just five minutes from the airport via complimentary transfer, the resort is a perfect departure point for the alien landscape of the Bunge Bungle Range or a visit to Australia’s largest diamond mine.
With a light colour palette, accented by red notes, the resort’s modern rooms are a welcome respite from the Australian sun and the vivid colours of the Kimberley. Club Rooms, nestled among the Resort’s gardens, are well appointed with tea and coffee making facilities and Foxtel televisions. All-important WiFi is included free of charge meaning you can stay connected – especially useful if you’ve come in from the wilderness. For travelling groups, look to the larger Triple Room for suitable accommodation.
Kelly’s Bar and Grill is open throughout the day and serves a range of modern Australia favourites. Start your morning with a cooked breakfast or eggs Benedict with salmon before a light lunch of grilled barramundi or smoked rainbow trout. In the evening, gourmet risottos, Tasmanian salmon and excellent steaks make Kelly’s a popular choice. For an alternative experience, take a pizza fresh from the oven to the nearby outdoor cinema to enjoy as the sun sets over Kununurra.
An oasis in the bush, Kununurra Country Club Resort swaps arid desert for rich foliage as you relax in the lush, tropical gardens after a day exploring the Kimberley World Heritage Area. Failing that, there’s also the swimming pool to cool off in. There’s also the resort’s main bar; popular with guests and locals alike, it’s all too easy to soak up the atmosphere and enjoy the flowing conversation. For a quieter evening tipple, take to the poolside bar.
