We were delighted to return to Faraway Bay, being five years since we last enjoyed the many pleasures of this sensational luxury bush camp. This time we came for the 2016 rock art retreat and Kevin and Ju Ju (Aboriginal Elder representing traditional owners) certainly delivered on what this retreat had promised. During four days, we were privileged to spend... More

A magical place in an amazing part of the country. Booking experience is a sign of things to come. Very guest oriented and Kathie can't do enough to help you. The Faraway Bay experience is so unique, not just because of the many activities on offer, but the incredible hospitality of Kevin, Gemma and Sarah. Rarely are you made to... More

Had a fabulous time at Faraway Bay, this place is a must if you want to see the Kimberleys! The food is delicious and beautifully presented, and I can highly recommend the cocktails 😊 We had some fantastic day trips to see the King George Falls and various rock art sites, it was a real privilege to see this ancient...

If you ever get a chance, this is one trip to add to your must list for those who are interested in native Australian rock "art". Also add in the beautiful weather late June and the amenities at the "bush" camp. It is much more than a bush camp with pool, spa and sumptuous meals. This is not a place... More

I am so glad I went here. It's such an amazing place with so much to see and explore, everything from beautiful aboriginal rock art to awesome waterfalls.

Our time at Faraway Bay was most enjoyable. Although still hot in March, each day was spent out in the boat exploring the beautiful Kimberley coastline: waterfalls, bird life, turtles and fish. The accommodation is amazing considering the remoteness of the resort and the hospitality and meals superb.

We stayed for three nights for our 30th Wedding Anniversary. We wanted to do something special within the Kimberley, and chose Faraway Bay as it is close to the spectacular King George Falls, with an abundance of easily accessible rock art, as well as a great location on a remote part of the Kimberley Coast. Our visit exceeded our expectations,... More

We have travelled to many nations and exotic places around the world, but our four days at Faraway Bay stand out among the very best. Faraway Bay is true Australian wilderness: isolated, with beautiful scenery, waterways, ruggered coastline, waterfalls, swimming holes, fishing and wonderful aboriginal rock art, but it is also a place where one is totally pampered. A one... More

I first went to Faraway Bay last year & returned feeling completely rejuvenated having switched off from ‘real’ life & rediscovered the things that really matter. This year I returned to Faraway Bay for my mum’s 70th Birthday. I’ve travelled all over the world but I’ve never been anywhere like FAB . When other holiday memories fade and blur, life... More
