Must See & Do - Ord River

The Ord River provides one of the most stunning river systems in Australia – it is scenically beautiful and rich in wildlife and flora. Traversing the eastern Kimberley region for 650km, the Ord River was discovered in 1879 by Alexander Forrest and was named after Sir Harry Ord, Governor of Western Australia (1877–80) and as with Lake Argyle, it is designated as a RAMSAR wetland of International Significance.

There are cruising options that traverse the 55km stretch of river from Kununurra (Diversion Dam) to the Ord Top Dam (Lake Argyle) with Triple J Tours. You could also explore Lake Kununurra nearer to Kununurra at your own pace by hiring a BBQ Pontoon Boat or a dinghy to head out to catch your very own freshwater Barramundi!

The river’s ecosystem is rich in wildlife, birdlife and fish and enjoying sunset over Lake Kununurra is the perfect way to end a day.

Flight/cruise combo tours are available in this local’s playground.
