Scenic Flight to Faraway Bay

The breathtaking flight puts Faraway Bay’s unique and remote location for Kununurra accommodation into awesome perspective.

Explore over 280kms of raw Kimberley wilderness starting from Kununurra, including the mighty Ord River and Berkeley River, mangroves and expansive rugged coastline. From 500 feet spot dugongs, sea turtles, sharks and massive saltwater crocodiles.

Included in this is also a scenic flight over the spectacularly iconic King George Falls.

Equally spectacular are the scenic flights direct from Darwin. After departing the Northern Territory coast, you will fly over the Timor Sea, Joseph Bonaparte Gulf then cross the Kimberley Coast on the way to touching down at Faraway Bay.

Warm Welcome

Once landed, you’ll be greeted with a smile from your Faraway Bay host and a characteristic ‘open air’ safari style four-wheel-drive to take you 4kms to your accommodation – approximately a 20 minute drive.
