The most gorgeous setting, far away from everything. Don't expect a five star hotel but do expect the best seascapes, sunsets, delicious food, land and sea adventures. Totally relaxed atmosphere. Helpful and enthusiastic staff. I hope to return next year.

My partner and I spent 3 fantastic nights at faraway bay last week. It really is an experience not to be missed. The flight out there is wonderfully scenic passing over the King George Falls and the remote kimberley landscape. On arrival we were warmly greeted by Kevin and his lovely staff and then set off to see some Bradshaw... More

We tried to contact them numerous times to enquire about a booking. The first time was thru their web page and numerous times by phone. The phone always goes to message bank with only 2 replies when I was out of phone range. I replied to both of these missed calls, leaving a message. I received no further contact from... More

Sorry to hear you didn't get through. With our Website enquiries there is a special code at the bottom of the Enquiry page which if not entered does not send through enquiry.

My wife and I visited Faraway Bay for the second time and were very disappointed in the level of service that we received this time. The area is indeed breathtakingly gorgeous, and the flight out is wonderful. They need to raise the bar on their service ethic if they continue to charge the rates that they are asking.

Wonderfully run to provide an experience that is literally unique due to location, friendliness, and quality. The site allows access to unspoiled beauty, and the management work to ensure that guests are treated to a variety of activities that show the beauty, culture, and wilderness of the place. The food is excellent, and the resort cultivates friendships. Just the best.

What a magic place.As a sole traveller it was not just the fun activities and the surroundings but the ease with which you make friends of the people you meet. There seems to be a special spirit about the place that binds everyone together,guests and staff.Loved sitting around the campfire chatting swapping stories drinking quality wine and eating superb food.

We had a great 4 day/4 night stay at Faraway Bay Bush Camp - starting with a fantastic hour-long flight from Kununurra. FB is really laid-back, remote without the usual hardships of being remote... very comfortable ensuited cabins each with its own outside shower with a magnificent view. Food is excellent and plentiful - including lots of fresh fish after... More

We stayed for seven days, zipped along pristine coast in the boat to find "secret' waterfalls and swimming holes, clambered up the ranges to find amazing rock art, stopped along the way to catch great fish which we enjoyed that night, ate great food, sat on a rock outlook sipping champagne watching the sun set, had a few great reds,...

My partner and I stayed at Faraway Bay for 12 days: WOW. This unique experience offered the best of both, the real outback paired with the best of food and drink.
