Faraway Bay The Bush Camp, Kununurra

On the north west corner of the vast Australian coastline, there is a place so remote you won’t find it on any map. It’s so far away from anywhere, we called it Faraway Bay. It feels like the edge of forever, and time appears to stand still. When it does move, it’s measured in tides and sunsets.
Getting there truly is part of this adventure, with access strictly limited to air. Guests fly by light aircraft from Kununurra, over some of the most breathtaking scenery on earth.

Faraway Bay, The Bush Camp is an outstanding wilderness retreat. Spectacularly isolated, all six secluded bush-style cabins enjoy 180° ocean views. Visitors wake up each morning to birdsong, and drift off each evening to the gentle sounds of the ocean. And while the wildlife is prolific, the neighbours are not. With a maximum of just twelve guests at any time, privacy is ensured.

Eagle Lodge, the main meeting place, is surely Australia’s most unusual dining room – except it’s a room with no walls. Perched on a headland overlooking remote and tranquil Faraway Bay, this bush-built pole and corrugated iron roof structure is ideally suited to the climate and spectacular setting – and combines guest lounging, croc spotting, cooking and dining, all in one dramatic location. In this exotic kitchen the Kimberley Cooking School , held annually, provides a unique opportunity to learn tricks, tips and inside secrets from one of Australia’s top chefs.

It’s the ultimate walk on the wild side. You’ve never been this far away ….

Where Are Australia's Best Beaches?

Australia's Best Beaches

Australia has miles and miles of shoreline but which beaches are really great? Ultimately it depends on what you're looking for in a beach. Pristine wilderness without a single footprint in sight, the sparkle of cosmopolitan high rise on the waters edge, the adrenalin pumping roar of a powerful surf beach, or quite simply the perfect white squeaky sand that squelches between your toes.
