First time visit to the Kimberley and to Faraway Bay. Unbelievable! from the moment we took off from Kununurra it was an experience - an amazing experience. It was like we were in another world - the remoteness was brilliant (for me a workaholic!no mobile phone coverage and limited access to emails) We went mid season, weather was perfect, spent... More

The whole experience starting with the plane from Kunnunara to Faraway Bay was great. The location is brilliant and their website is to be believed. The food is very good but don't expect that it will be the Ritz...just very good with variety. Good wines (probably not as many left after my visit) and beer on tap as well as... More

Upon the moment you land in a small plane on the Faraway bush strip, the experience is truly unique. When you arrive at the camp you are presented with magnificent views across the azure blue Faraway Bay, made all the more amazing by the cluster of sharks cruising the shallows of the bay. The host Kevin is incredable and it... More

Faraway Bay is a unique experience. it is rustic and natural, simplicity at its best. The camp is nestled into landscape with out compromising the natural beauty of the place. The cabins are simple, with a 180 degree view overlooking the sea. The out door showers are amazing, i must admit i was a bit hesitant on arrival. The vehicles... More

It's hard to know how to judge Faraway Bay - it costs more than Southern Ocean Lodge for very mediocre accommodation and meals, but it still provided most of the top highlights of a trip around the Kimberleys. The cabins are very very basic - if you get an ensuite the toilet has no door, but the outside showers are... More
