Spectacularly sited, all eight secluded bush-style cabins enjoy glorious 180-degree views of the ocean, combining a true remote experience with safety, comfort and style. Eagle Lodge, the main lounging and dining area (without any walls!) overlooks the spectacular cliffside freshwater pool and Faraway Bay.

Year Round

Australia is an all-year-round destination, but during the summer, December to February, it is hot in Western Australia, Northern Territory and Queensland. At the Great Barrier Reef, most rain falls in January and February. In northern Queensland and parts of the Northern Territory, roads may flood during the 'green' season, January to March. The ski season takes place during June to October in New South Wales, Victoria and Tasmania. Australia's seasons are the opposite of those of the Northern Hemisphere.

Spring: September-November
Summer: December-February
Fall: March-May
Winter: June-August

Cruise to The King George Falls, Dugongs, Dolphins, Turtles, Manta Rays, Bushwalking, Beach Combing, Flora and Fauna watching, Photography, Painting, Ocean Sports, Star Gazing & Exploring.

Day cruises up the Kimberley coast to the King George River, where after the wet season the falls cascade over a hundred foot cliff into the gorge below. Along the way stop off at one of the pristine beaches for a walk swimming is not an option and it is better to view sharks and crocodiles from the safety of the camp. A coastal trip south of the camp to Monitor Pool, a magnificent circular plunge pool at the foot of imposing basalt and sandstone cliffs, and a refreshingly cool and safe place for swimming. Lesueur Island: Guests can go walking, fishing or just relax on the island. If you want to try to catch some fish en route to the island, you can enjoy a beach BBQ for lunch. Wildlife includes crocodiles, sharks, turtles and occasionally dugongs, which can be viewed from the camp. Wallabies, other bush wildlife and birds can be seen on bush walks behind the camp.
Local Info

The Kimberley region of Western Australia is one of the world's last great wilderness areas. It has one of the fastest population growth rates in Australia, yet has fewer people per square kilometre than almost any other place on earth. Situated in the far north west of WA, the Kimberley is an ancient landform of rugged ranges with deep, spectacular gorges and pristine sandy beaches that fringe the turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean. Mighty river systems produce thundering waterfalls during the wet season and pockets of lush rainforest can be found throughout the region. The Kimberley is a vast and pristine area and to explore it is an adventure you will never forget, and cherish forever.
Owners & Hosts

Bruce & Robyn Ellison and partners.
On the northwest corner of the vast Australian continent, in the Kimberley region, there is a place so remote you would be lucky to find its name on any map. Never was a place so well named - Faraway Bay is situated in the far north-west corner of Western Australia, near the mouth of the King George River, faraway from any towns.
There is no road access, the only way in is via a 70-minute flight in a light aircraft from Kununurra. The flight itself is an attraction as the aircraft passes over the Ord River Irrigation System, Cambridge Gulf, Wyndham, Berkeley River Gorges, King George Falls, cattle country and the magnificent coastline. At the end of the flight there is only one accommodation property, the wonderfully situated and remote The Bush Camp at Faraway Bay. Not only is the property both in a spectacular and remote location, but you can have as much privacy as you'd like, since the most people the property can accommodate is 12, in 6 2-person hillside cabins.
