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.
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.
A stay at Faraway Bay is now even more breathtaking, with private helicopter flights on the menu. Climb aboard a luxury Truenorth Helicopter and take an exhilarating flight to experience some of the Kimberley’s most spectacular scenes by air.
“The freedom the helicopter allows, ensures you see the Kimberley from a unique vantage point, truly capturing the magnitude, the power and the natural wonder of this ancient landscape,” said Jim Ryan, Truenorth Helicopters’ Chief Pilot.
“When we visit King George Falls for example, we fly around 500 feet, which allows us to witness every part of the falls. Here, we take some time to capture those unforgettable holiday shots, before moving on to explore the powerful King George River.”
Truenorth Helicopter tour options include:
- King George scenic tour – to witness Western Australia’s highest waterfall, the 80-metre twin King George Falls.
- A half-day tour to the Mitchell Falls.
- A picnic at Eagle Falls.
- A scenic tour of Kalumburu Mission, taking in Napier Broome Bay and Cape Londonderry at the most northern tip of WA.
Truenorth Helicopter’s Bell 407 aircraft features a luxury fit-out and air-conditioned comfort for single travellers, couples, or groups of up to six guests. Flights can be booked as a separate tour or as an add-on to Faraway Bay’s fully-inclusive boat cruise to King George Falls.
The optional tours by Truenorth Helicopters at Faraway Bay start from $518 per person (based on five or more passengers).
Glamping [glamorous + camping] – a form of going camping, with glamour. It’s like regular camping, but with nicer things than usual – being warmer, good food and the physical comforts associated with more luxurious types of holiday.
Faraway Bay has been showcased as one of the top 12 Australian Glamping Experiences on Tourism Australia’s Facebook page. Check out what travel-lovers around the world are saying…
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’!”
