It is expensive but the three day stay included the flights and all excursions. Great scenic flight and arrive in time for morning tea which was sumptuous. The meals were excellent. Gemma and Kevin will ensure you are well fed. Enjoyed seeing rock paintings and other trips organised by Kevin. Kevin is laid back but you know you are in... More

My husband and I recently had the pleasure of staying at Faraway Bay in June 2015. We were very impressed with the service and attentiveness of all the staff, especially Kevin and Jemma. Kevin is extremely knowledgeable about boating, fishing, the local area, and Aboriginal art. He educated us about these matters in a very low-keyed, unassuming manner. Jemma made... More

Faraway Bay is a first class remote wilderness experience in a beautiful part of the Kimberley coastline. Kevin and Emma will treat you to magnificent meals and daily outdoor activities. If your interests include river and coastal waterfalls and scenery, fishing, birding, walking, ancient rock art, or just soaking up the atmosphere of the wilderness you will be well catered... More

A small family group of four of us recently enjoyed a five night stay in this little piece of "heaven on earth" on the remote north Kimberley coast. After an interesting flight from Kununurra over the Ord and Berkeley rivers and King George falls, we landed on the airstrip and were transported to the camp in a wonderful vehicle over... More

Kevin Riley runs a very professional operation at the Bush Camp, Faraway Bay. The only access is by aircraft or boat, so it is very secluded! The hospitality and food are unbelieveable, as one instance the canapes etc before dinner are to die for! And could really be the meal! The scenery is magnificent, and the picnic lunches on the...

Faraway Bay is everything that a holiday should provide: amazing scenery, fishing, best food. It is hard to explain but you need to get yourself here and you won't want to leave - it is so remote, so beautiful and the you have the FB team making the experience even better.

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

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.
