Discovery Parks - Lake Kununurra     Read more ...

in Western Australia’s remote East Kimberley,you will find Discovery Parks – Lake Kununurra (formerly known as BIG4 Discovery Parks - Lake Kununurra). It is the only park on the edge of the lake, with diverse accommodation from luxury cabins to simple camping site. This is a great spot for fishing with a boat ramp located within the park for easy access to the water. There are loads of facilities at this large park which is very popular. This is a very convenient place to stay for access to nearby tourist attractions like Lake Argyle, Hidden Valley Mirima National Park (mini Bungle Bungles), Wyndam (five rivers lookout), El Questro, Home Valley Station, Emma Gorge etc. We had no trouble finding things to do during our stay in Kununurra.

This Park is within walking distance to the Pump House Restaurant which we found to be a great spot for that pre-dinner drink while watching the magnificent sunsets. The Kununurra Golf Course is along the same road. A cycling and walking track runs all the way into the centre of Kununurra, a great way to explore the town. 

The staff are friendly and helpful. This is a bird watchers paradise and we were lucky enough to see Crimson Finches eating in the grass around the van. They are beautiful little birds and fairly rare - we had only ever seen pictures of these finches before our visit to Kununurra. You may even be lucky enough to see a fresh water crocodile sunning itself in the early mornings.

Lakeside Resort Caravan Park     Read more ...
We stayed at the Lakeside Resort Caravan Park in September and there was plenty of space for our van. This park is on Lily Creek Lagoon which comes off Lake Kununurra. The water level stays fairly constant due to the diversion dam built on the Ord River. Our site was situated overlooking the water and had great views of the lagoon as well as a wonderful vantage point to watch the beautiful sunsets. Plenty of wildlife to watch - we even sighted a freshwater crocodile sunning itself.

Each evening we saw thousands of bats flying overhead on their way to the fruit trees for a nightly feed. Plenty of bird life around the park and we were lucky enough to see Crimson Finches eating in the grass around the van. They are beautiful little birds and fairly rare.

The park has a lovely pool area and this is located next to the bar and outdoor dining space. There are dinner specials on most nights and this restaurant is popular with the locals. The amenities are fairly old but very clean and there is motel style accommodation available at the front of the Resort. The office will happily book tours for you while staying in the park. We enjoyed our stay here and would use the Lakeside Resort Caravan Park again if we are lucky enough to return to Kununurra.

Hidden Valley Tourist Park     Read more ...

Hidden Valley Mirima Tourist Park can be found on Weaber Plains Road, Kununurra, Western Australia. This Caravan Park is located within walking distance of the Hidden Valley Mirima National Park - also known as mini Bungle Bungles. Take an early morning walk in the Park for great viewsl

Hidden Valley Mirima Tourist Park has plenty of shaded areas and the sites are covered with grass. We found the roads around the park had quite a few pot holes and some areas would be a bit difficult to access when the park was full.
