Kununurra Things to Do

  • Kelly's Knob Lookout

    A beautiful place to go. You get a wonderful veiw of the town; both the residential areas, and the vast area which is devoted to crops suck as sugar cane. Sunset is the best time to see it

  • Lake Argyle

    This is the second biggest storage reservoir in Australia. It was build because there's to much water in the Wet and to little in the Dry. By this regular water supply, agricultur has bloomed here. The lake deserves a visit, water as far as the eye can see and ridges plunging into the water.

  • Kelly's Knob

    This is a great lookout in the middle of town. You've got amazing views especially during sunset. If you visit during the Wet, you can also see some great thunderstorms from there, but the knob also gets struck a lot, so be careful.

  • Ivanhoe Crossing

    If you've got a 4WD, you should go here. They made some kind of a dam across the Ord river, the water on the edge isn't deep, so you can cross the river with your 4 WD. You can also go fishing there, although the Aboriginals are better at it. And you can go swimming, but there may be some freshies there.

Amazing waterfall and with 4x4 driving through it really was something speacial, we had a really good walk down the park and took our rods as well, as...
