Lake Kununurra

Natural Attractions

Go swimming, fishing, cruising, canoeing, sailing, rowing and skiing on the waters of Lake Kununurra in the East Kimberley.

The Lake was formed after the completion of the Diversion Dam in Kununurra and today harbours a variety of wildlife with its wetland areas internationally recognised for the wonderful range of bird life they support.

The waters of Lake Kununurra have also been recently re-stocked with more than 300,000 of the highly prized trophy fish – the barramundi – making it a destination for keen anglers to put their strength and endurance to the test.

Lake Kununurra is part of the Upper Ord River that stretches for 56 kilometres from the dam wall at Lake Argyle to the Diversion Dam which passes through some of the most scenic countryside in the region.

Be sure to take a boat cruise and travel down Carlton Gorge with its magnificent cliffs and rock overhangs or, enjoy magnificent waterfalls that cascade into the gorge during the wet season.

You can also hire a canoe and paddle from dam to dam camping on the riverbank overnight.

Lake Kununurra fringes the township of Kununurra.
