Reflections in the Ord River

Reflections in the Ord River

Among other things, we took a cruise on the Ord River/Lake Kununurra. It included a bus trip to the boat, and both the bus tour and the boat tour was cram packed full of beautiful sights and information.

On the boat we took video and still photos - everywhere you looked you just had to take another photo, and another! Our eagle-eyed tour guide was able to spot wildlife and point it out to us, and the beautiful landscape spoke for itself.

The trip was capped off with perfect timing to catch sunset and the opportunity to watch literally millions of fruit bats take off on their nightly foray to feed. Our last photo was of a pelican silhouetted on bare tree branches against the darkening sky. Very dramatic.

But the gorgeous scenery perfectly reflected in the water was spectacular. Kununurra is a definite 'must visit again' for us! And we'd love to come back in the Wet Season.

Ord River / Lake Kununurra
by: Birgit

Thanks for your glowing report, Sandra :-). Makes me want to catch a plane back home right now! (I'm in Europe visiting the relatives.)

And it's nice to read how others love the same things we love.
After 15 years living in Kununurra, a day on the river still has exactly the same effect on me as it had on you.

By the way, sounds like you have some great photos. Would you like to share more of them? (While you can upload only one via the form, I can put in a few more for you manually if you email them to me.)

Triple J tour on Ord

We went on this great trip, bus pick up on time & great commentary on way to lake. Short break at park then cross dam to catch boat & back by river, great trip & another good commentary on way down. Would recommend this company to anyone for a great trip. Friendly, on time & very clean.
