Expert Outback Retreat Guides

The Faraway Bay team includes guides who are highly experienced in outback life and bush survival.

Our local regular guides share their love and passion for the Kimberley with each and every guest. Their aim is to make sure each guest has the ultimate experience and can leave saying that they had the best time of their lives!

With diverse backgrounds including fishermen, stockmen and mechanics, our knowledgeable and friendly guides ensure guests enjoy this diverse landscape safely.

From knowing where the barramundi fish are biting, to their heralded camp fire – there’s not much the Faraway Bay guides can’t do!

Our guides are also known for their scientific and research activities, including surveys and papers on topics such as Ice Age and Aboriginal artwork.

The Faraway Bay guiding team includes renowned Kimberley archaeologist Lee Scott Virtue, who specialises in ancient Aboriginal rock art, Bradshaw rock art, and traditional owner – Ju Ju Wilson.


Supplied with the freshest catch of the day and fresh fruit and vegetables flown in from Kununurra, our chef transforms these ingredients into delicious gourmet meals.

This is another of Kevin’s skills and passions – he loves food and enjoys sharing this passion with all guests, creating amazing culinary delights, always with his motto “better to have too much than not enough”.
