KIMBERLY RANGES

Faraway Bay Lodge

This unique eco lodge is a magical destination about as far away from anywhere as you could wish to be.

Perched above a perfect bay on the Kimberley Coast, the lodge and its 8 elevated cabins overlook the turquoise Timor Sea. Faraway Bay is an exclusive and authentic wilderness retreat featuring simple luxury and tranquillity cocooned in the heart of nature. It offers an experience like no other, including superb isolation, warm hospitality, good food, and a rare opportunity to explore the Kimberley outback. Discover significant ancient rock art, waterfalls, stunning natural wonders, archaeological sites, and abundant wildlife.

The lodge is situated on high conservation value land and is a leader in nature-based, low impact tourism. Guests are accommodated in 8 comfortable double or twin cabins surrounded by natural bushland, each offering absolute privacy and 180-degree views of the bay. Each cabin has air conditioning and ceiling fans, ensuite facilities and an outdoor solar-heated, spring water shower with a view. There is no electronic entertainment, nor mobile reception, so guests can immerse themselves in nature. Wake to the sound of bird song and go to sleep to the gentle lapping of the waves on the shore.

The cabins are a short walk on sandy paths to the central open-air Eagle Lodge, built from recycled materials. Dining is al fresco around the “long table” with stunning views of the sea. All meals (and non-alcoholic drinks) are included and feature fresh local produce from the Ord River orchards and wild caught fish. Alcoholic drinks including excellent wines are available for purchase. Lunch is often a delicious picnic whilst out in the wilderness or on one of the lodge vessels. Pre-dinner canapes or plated entrees are served around the campfire or around the bar, whilst dinner is a sumptuous two course affair. The lodge has a freshwater plunge pool and infinity outdoor spa, and a comprehensive research library, with books on local flora and fauna, bush tucker and rock art.

Faraway Bay is open between 1 March and 31 October. March/April can still be wet but ideal for seeing the waterfalls and for fishing. From April to September the weather is usually perfect with daily temperatures averaging 30°C, blue skies and cooler evenings. Temperature in March and October generally rise and rain is a possibility. There is a minimum stay of 3 nights.
