Faraway Bay

  • SUMMARY
  • DETAILS
  • VIDEO

If you are looking to discover breathtaking Kimberley scenery, look no further than the bush camp at Faraway Bay. On the northwest corner of the vast Australian continent, in the Kimberley region there is a place so remote you won't find the name Faraway Bay on any map. It feels like the edge of forever, where a few days can feel like a week, and a week can change you eternally. Time at Faraway Bay appears to stand still and when it does move, it's measured in tides and sunsets.

Getting to Faraway Bay is truly part of the adventure, with access strictly limited to sea and air. Light aircraft will fly you in from Kununurra over some of the most spectacular scenery to a private airstrip and then by 4WD for the final few kilometres to the bush camp.

Owners of Faraway Bay, Bruce and Robyn Ellison discovered the protected bay, near Cape Londonderry in the Timor Sea 13 years ago, and instantly felt it would make the perfect coastal Bush Camp in the Kimberley's. Bruce should know as he had been constructing camps for exploration companies all across the East Kimberley Diamond Coast. In Bruce's words "Even I had never seen such a pristine spot".

One the highlights of your stay at Faraway Bay may well be when the 13-metre cruiser Diamond Lass takes you along the coast to the King George River with its towering sandstone cliffs, ending with the majestic twin waterfalls. If the falls are flowing its time for one of the most invigorating fresh water natural jacuzzis you will experience as the Diamond Lass edges up the rock face.

In the evening it is time to relax and soak in the ambience of this remote and pure wilderness. Enjoy a fine Australian wine as you sit back and be tantalised by the delicious aromas of freshly caught fish being cooked with herbs. On at least one evening you must treat yourself to the ultimate seafood dining experience of freshly collected oysters from the rocks combined with the northern delicacy of mudcrabs.

Faraway Bay caters for a maximum of 12 guests at any time, so your privacy is ensured. Wake up each morning to birdsong and drift off each evening to gentle ocean sounds. It is remote yet sophisticated with cabins giving an open-air feeling.

When your batteries need a recharge, spirit yourself away to the most idyllic Faraway Bay you could ever imagine. Take time to experience timelessness in an untamed wilderness.
