KD2: Kimberley Durack Sunset Explorer Cruise

Watch the video above for an insight into the Lake Argyle Sunset Explorer Cruise

Experience the true diversity of the ever changing landscape of Australia’s largest body of fresh water on this  3.5 hour afternoon exploration of Lake Argyle. Departing from the Lake Argyle Resort at 2.10pm, your adventure begins with a close up view of the main dam wall, intake structure and quarry blast site.  From there, cruising through ‘the Heads’ leads us to the expanse of Pintpot Bay and beyond.

Whilst providing informative commentary, the Skipper guides the specially designed vessel amongst numerous inlets and bays in search of local wildlife including Freshwater Crocodiles and their many nesting sites.  The cruise continues out to Hagen island – the largest of more than 70 islands on Lake Argyle.   Hagan Island is over 7 km long and is easily recognised by the landmark ‘Mount Misery’ towering over the now submerged site of the original Argyle Downs Homestead after which Lake Argyle is named.  Heading west into the sunset this ancient land will mesmerize.  We then stop for a refreshing swim in the tranquil waters of the ‘Bay of Islands’. As the sun sets we serve a cheese platter, dips and crackers with complimentary beer, wine and soft drink.  The coach returns you to  Lake Argyle Resort at dusk.
