Must See & Do - Lake Argyle

Located just 70km south of Kununurra, Lake Argyle is the magnificent result of some of the greatest pieces of engineering ever witnessed in Australia. The result is a massive expanse of fresh water (1000km2), the second largest in Australia and equivalent to an average of 19 Sydney Harbours.

It is home to an estimated 30,000 freshwater crocodiles, 26 species of native fish and a third of Australia’s bird species and is designated as a RAMSAR wetland of International Significance.

You can take to the Lake on a very popular lunch or sunset cruise or simply hire a canoe, pontoon or paddle board and have a look around at your leisure!

Lake Argyle also has a caravan park, resort-style accommodation and one of the most photographed infinity pools in Australia for those wishing to stay a while. As well as cruising and watercraft hire options, there are walking trails and the historic Argyle Downs Homestead Museum is just a short drive from the Resort.

While you are there - check out the construction of the dam wall video that is shown regularly at the pub and enjoy a plate of silver cobbler and chips.
