What was once "Argyle Downs", a million acre cattle station, is now an immense body of water amid a largely untamed and rugged wildernessin the remote East Kimberley region of Western Australia. Aptly named "Lake Argyle", this majestic waterway can at times encompass an area of more than 2000km2, a volume equivalent to 54 Sydney Harbours. With its ever changing moods and landscapes it has developedinto a unique eco system, home to an amazing array of wildlife. There is no better way to capture all of this outstanding beauty than to take a cruise with Lake Argyle Cruises. We offer a selection of tours catering for the individual traveller as well as large tour groups. Specialisedcharters such as bird watching, bush walking and exploration can be arranged with prior notice. « less

We did the sunset cruise and it was a memorable experience. The skipper, Matt, was one of the best tour guides I have come across. Matt was very friendly and gave a great account about Lake Argyle and its history.

Having done the wonderful sunset cruise with Greg from Lake Argyle Cruises previously and thoroughly enjoyed it, this time we opted for a canoeing experience instead to balance up some of the pancakes consumed earlier! With a friend we headed off to the Lake Argyle Cruises office to pick up our life jackets, paddles and a map before heading down... More

We did the sunset cruise with Matt, starts at 2.30 pm and finishes about 6pm Matt takes guests to various sites on the Lake where you will see rock wallabies, fresh water crocodiles and the most amazing scenery I have come across. Lake Argyl is a massive body of water stretching as far as the eye can see, surrounded by... More

Of course the surface of Lake Argyle was barely wind ruffled as we cruised across it in the open boat. But the uncanny part was knowing we were metres above where the Ord River once flowed between banks way below us.What we saw as islands were once the peaks of nearby hills. We saw rock wallabies, photographed freshwater crocodiles, and... More

Hi Very concerned that you had a bad experience here at the Lake. There are two companies doing cruises here and I would like to check that you have the correct one! What color vessel did you do the cruise on? Regards Greg More

My husband and I did the evening tour yesterday (2.30 to after sunset) with Greg as coach driver and Matt as tour guide on the lake. Matt's knowledge of Lake Argyle in terms of its history, geography, local wildlife, vegetation...everything... is very impressive. (He would be my phone-a-friend on Who Wants To Be A Millionaire). This, plus his good sense... More

This is a wonderful cruise, you have to get on the water to fully appreciate the size of Lake Argyle which is 21 times as big as Sydney Harbour. We did the sunset cruise and it was awesome, what an experience to be in that special place and at sunset be swimming and then sipping some bubbles !

Not my cup of tea, accept that it's interesting to see the size of the lake, but hand feeding the same wallaby every day. ..

This really was a fabulous day on the lake! Greg has an amazing knowledge and delivers it superbly. Great sense of humour, very easy to be with, delicious tropical fruit for afternoon tea, topped off with wine and cheese and crackers at sunset. Very comfortable and clean boat. Excellent value for money.
