Lake Argyle Resort
In the far north of Western Australia in the remote Kimberley region is a vast freshwater lake nestled amongst a rugged billion year old landscape. Lake Argyle is Australia’s largest expanse of freshwater covering an area of more than 900 square kilometres at full supply level and up to 2000 square kilometres when in flood. Once a habitat that was subject to the cycles of the wet and dry seasons, now this massive expanse of permanent fresh water has allowed a thriving ecosystem to develop.The magnificent scenery and peaceful isolation make Lake Argyle a must see destination when visiting the Kimberley!
The immense freshwater lake formed by the damning of the mighty Ord River has created an amazing marine environment which now offers a wide range of adventures and activities beginning at the Lake Argyle village. There is plenty to see and do in and around the lake with its countless islands, bays and beaches. Here are a few of the attractions waiting be explored on any trip to Lake Argyle. Birdwatching, bushwalking, historic Durack Homestead Museum, the new pool, swimming, The Bungle Bungles and watersports.
