Dine in the Outback

Often bypassed by the everyday traveller in favour of Perth or the east coast, the Kimberley region is still relatively unknown, even by many Australians.

There aren’t many places left in the world like Western Australia’s Kimberley region. Billed as one of the world’s last wilderness frontiers, it’s home to just 40,000 people and a single sealed road – which, in a place three times the size of England, is almost incomprehensible.

What it lacks in opera houses and surfers it makes up for in truly unique experiences. A visit to the region could see you swimming in waterfalls in the middle of the bush without another person in sight; star gazing with no light pollution; or flying in a helicopter to take in the undulating landscape, a mixture of endless coastline, beaches, outback and waterfalls.

The Bungle Bungle Wilderness Lodge is ideally located in the World Heritage-listed Purnululu National Park where alfresco dining is amongst breath-taking views is an experience to be savoured. Guests will have the opportunity to relax around a campfire under the stars and chat to fellow guests before returning to comfortable tented cabins, each with an en suite bathroom and private deck.
