It is almost impossible to describe the beauty of this part of Australia. From the air the beauty becomes almost breathtaking. The passion and knowledge that the team from Slingair have for this region, their home, is obvious. A truly memorable experience. A big ticket item for anyone's bucket list!

Can only say our flight over the bungle bugles was nothing short of amazing and a real education about a really amazing part of this land. Tom the pilot was an absolute gentleman and his commentary really made the trip what it was. Nothing negative to say at all and we're still buzzing.

Although a different airline turned out to be my transfer from Kununurra to/from Purnululu NP in early May, 2014, while there on the first afternoon I did take the 30-minute helicoptor flight over the Bungles. And a few days later I took Slingair's full-day flight north to see both the King George and Mitchell Falls. We landed and had lunch... More

The fixed wing flight over the Bungle Bungles, Lake Argyle and the Argyle Diamond Mine was fantastic. To see this area from the air showed just how vast it is. The ruggedness of the ranges and the amazing colours, are almost hard to believe. The commentary from the pilot is interesting and informative. Be aware that not everyone gets a... More

I did code W tour (flight from Kununurra, ground tour and helicopter & return flight) Everything is very well organised. Doing the ground tour is DEFINITELY worth doing, if you are considering it. The ground tour was led by a young guy who knew all about the formation of the Bungle Bungles, flora and fauna of the area. The Picnic... More

We enjoyed the scenery on our flight and had an excellent tour and lunch at the Argyle Diamond Mine. Our only disappointment was that although we were asked if we could hear the commentary on the plane prior to the aeroplane engines being switched on we could not hear the information and stories told by Tom on the flight.

For a view of Lake Argyle and the Bungle Bungle Ranges, you really have to fly. We took the fixed wing option, single engine Cessna Caravan with everyone getting a window seat, but beware there are 'inside' seats if the plane is full. Pick up and drop off included, very efficient and competent crew gave us every confidence... recommended.

As they advertised, the scenic flight over the kimberleys was really a "flight of a lifetime!" A 2 hour flight will cost you about $435 (during Dec 2013) but its well worth the price because only when viewed from air you will get to experience the sheer size and beauty of the Kimberley.... its a magic!

Four of us did tour X, diamond mine, Bungles and Lake Argyle by plane. The whole day was fantastic, Gareth our pilot/tour guide was great, he runs the whole tour even at the mine and had good knowledge throughout, some funny local stories included. I highly recommend this tour!
