To Wine and Dine at Faraway Bay’s Eagle Lodge is an experience and in surely Australia’s most unusual kitchen and spectacular dining room.
Fresh Gourmet Produce
From your clifftop perch, feast on freshly caught wild Barramundi, Mangrove Jacks, and reef fish. Our menu also features home-baked fresh breads and exotic, sun-ripened fruit and vegetables picked and flown in from Kununurra’s Ord River.
