Kununurra is a town in far northern Western Australia, close (45 kilometres) to the Northern Territory Border, just down from the coast and the Timor Sea. The closest major city is Darwin, an 8.5-hour drive away. Kununurra couldn't be further away from Perth while remaining in Western Australia, at over 3,000 kilometres away or a 33-hour drive from the state's capital.
Kununurra is one of the gateway towns to the Kimberley Region, located on the eastern side of the Kimberly. It is fed by the Ord River Irrigation Scheme, with Lake Argyle located just south of the town. The town is surrounded by nature and national parks, with dozens of places worth driving to in your rental car.
Kununurra has a strong Aboriginal Australian presence, with 22% of the town being of Aboriginal Australian and Torres Strait Islander heritage. Due to this, you will find many Indigenous art galleries in town, as well as Aboriginal Heritage tours, with elders providing a unique insight into the landscape.
The main two points of entry into town are by car or by plane through the East Kimberley Regional Airport, which sits on the western edge of town just a few minutes by car from the centre of town.
Take in the beautiful landscapes of the East-Kimberley Region in your rental car. With lakes, forests, rocky cliffs, valleys and gorges all within driving distance of Kununurra. Before leaving town, head out to the town lookout known as Kelly's Knob. With panoramic views of the town and wider region and located just north of town, it's an easy addition to your time in town. A walk along the water in town and the Darram Conservation Park is also a good option for stretching your legs.
The main national park in the area is Purnululu National Park, home to the Bungle Bungle Range. These Beehive-shaped geological formations are 350 million years old, reaching their current unique formation around 20 million years ago. The formations are due to the erosion of sandstone quartz and the unique combination of cyanobacterial crust, which is formed in rings around each formation, giving them the appearance of beehives. Depending on the position of the sun and when it last rained, the colour of the rock can change dramatically, much like Uluru in Central Australia. Enjoy the park by car or through the set walking trails.
Much closer to Kununurra is the Mirima National Park, also full of striped, coloured rock. This national park is around a tenth of the size of Purnululu, but makes up for it with some spectacular scenery. The park is often referred to as a mini version of the Bungle Bungle Range due to similar geological formations. But where Bungle Bungle was formed into mounds, the colourful striped rock in Mirima was formed by ancient rivers over 300 million years ago. The park sits on the outskirts of town and is a must when in the region, with hundreds of native plants and unique Australian animals. The local Miriuwung people still use the park for spiritual ceremonies.
Try some of the local produce at one of the resorts, hotels, bars, pubs and restaurants in town. Head to the Kununurra Visitor Centre for all the information you need about what's happening in town. Stroll down the main streets and visit the Indigenous art galleries and other bespoke craft halls in town for a unique gift idea and to enjoy the work of talented local artists.
See the Kangaroo Haven just 7-minutes from town, offering up-close encounters with our most famous native animal, or the local Hoochery Distillery, a 15-minute drive north, serving 100% Australian rum, whiskey, gin, liqueur, and other unique drops. With the added bonus of art galleries, craft stores, local markets, museums and stores. There is plenty to do with your time and car in Kununurra.
