Description

Welcome to Faraway Bay, The Bush Camp. You've never been this far away.

On the north-west corner of the Australian continent, there is a place so remote, so far away from anywhere, its called Faraway Bay.

Time appears to stand still. When it does move, it's measured in tides and sunsets. Faraway Bay, The Bush Camp is a truly unique retreat, nestled on a rocky hilltop overlooking the Timor Sea, in the remote Kimberley Region.

Its an intimate escape that feels like the edge of forever. Here, a few days can feel like a week, and a week can change the way you feel forever.

On offer is remarkable natural beauty, isolation and history all set in a remote slice of outback Australia. Ease into nature's rhythm. Relax. Explore. Relax some more. A Rare Kimberley Encounter

Activities for guests include:
Bushwalking to see ancient rock art sites
Daily fishing trips
Wildlife viewing including plenty of birdlife
Swimming in pristine water holes
Cruising to the spectacular twin falls on the King George River
Star gazing
Beach combing
Day dreaming

Open air Eagle Lodge and exclusive cabins offer 180 degree views of the wilderness. Evening entertainment begins as the last rays dance across the rocks and water in a kaleidoscope of colour. Stargaze until dawn or drift off to the soothing sounds of waves lapping the shore.

Fresh Local Fare:
Guests wake up each morning to birdsong and enjoy breakfast in the open air Eagle Lodge, perfect for lounging, dining and daydreaming.

Eagle Lodge is surely Australia's most unusual kitchen and spectacular dining room. Here, you can feast on freshly caught wild barramundi, mangrove jacks, and reef fish, home-baked bread and exotic, sun-ripened fruit and vegetables picked and flown in from Kununurra's Ord River, all enjoyed with fine Western Australian wine or beer.

You also have access to tea, coffee, food and wine at any time. Snack on one of the chefs freshly baked biscuits, fresh fruit or cheese and biscuits, and enjoy the chefs picnics on selected excursions.

A Private Escape:
