The Kimberley named in top travel list by New York Times

The New York Times’ top travel list for 2013 is out and Western Australia’s remote Kimberley region is named as one of the best places in the world to visit.

The Kimberley was the only Australian destination to earn a place in the ‘Top 46’ list, taking out the number 19 spot.

Tim Neville from the New York Times writes (excerpts):

“Even by Australian standards, the Kimberley region is remote, with roughly 50,000 people living in an area larger than Germany.

“The area has long been largely off-limits to anyone without a yacht or the nerve to pilot a four-wheel drive through rocky riverbeds. Now luxury lodges have opened up the region to travelers willing to trade big bucks for land-based access to some spectacular spots.

“From any of these spots you can go fishing for barramundi, hike to sacred rock art sites, and take tours to towering waterfalls or up croc-infested estuaries to spy on wallabies and jabirus.”

Get in early to experience the magic of the Kimberley at Faraway Bay. Our all-inclusive package rates cover accommodation, all guided activities, unlimited boat charter, and all freshly prepared gourmet meals and beverages including select fine Australian wines and beers.

The 2013 season opens early (from March 28) in time for Easter.

New ‘Quoll Bar’ – the perfect place for lounging

Guests of Faraway Bay are loving our new indulgent bar and lounge – the ‘Quoll Bar’

Choose from a selection of quality beers on tap and a refreshed wine list showcasing fine West Australian red, white and sparkling wines.  With all beverages and gourmet meals fully-inclusive at Faraway Bay, the only thing to do is choose!

Faraway Bay owner and operator, Kevin Reilly says the Quoll Bar is proving popular with guests, as another perfect place for lounging and soaking up the atmosphere of the bay.

“As well as great views, it provides another area for our guests to relax in true Aussie outback style,” Kevin said.

The bar was introduced as an eco-friendly initiative to reduce waste at the camp, and is named after a friendly family of Northern Quolls who visit Eagle Lodge each night.

“The visits are a real treat for our guests, so we had no choice but to call it the ‘Quoll Bar’!”
