About Lake Argyle Cruises
LAKE ARGYLE CRUISES is the original tour company on Lake Argyle. We offer a range of scenic cruises catering for individual travellers as well as tour groups. Our fleet of purpose built vessels offer comfortable seating and unobstructed views that leave many customers exclaiming words such as “amazing”, “breathtaking”, and “unbelievable”. Lake Argyle is Australia’s largest expanse of fresh water. It boasts over 26 species of native fish and supports a commercial fishery as well as the newly established Aquaculture industry. Latest research estimates up to 25,000 Johnstone River Fresh Water crocodiles inhabit Lake Argyle, Rock Wallabies thrive in rocky crevices close to the water’s edge, Eros (Wallaroos) on the islands have adapted to feed on the lakes aquatic plants. We specialise in observing wildlife, but due to the nature of wild animals it cannot be guaranteed you will see all that is described in this brochure. At Lake Argyle village above the Main Dam you will find motel style cabins, shop, bar, restaurant and a caravan park. Drop in and try the local catch, “Silver Cobbler” delivered fresh daily. Nearby is the Historical Durack Family Homestead Museum. The inland sea was created in 1971, by damming the mighty Ord River, forming a storage reservoir to supply one of the country’s largest and most ambitious irrigation schemes. What was once “Argyle Downs”, a million acre cattle station, is now an immense body of water amid a largely untamed and rugged wilderness in the remote East Kimberley region of Western Australia. Aptly named “Lake Argyle”, this majestic waterway can at times encompass and area of more than 2000 km2, a volume of water equivalent to 54 Sydney harbours. With its ever changing moods and landscapes it has developed into a unique eco-system, home to an amazing array of wildlife. There is no better was to capture all of this outstanding beauty than to take a cruise with Lake Argyle Cruises. We offer a selection of tours catering for the individual traveller as well as large tour groups. Specialised charters such as bird watching, bush walking and exploration can be arranged with prior notice.

Greg the owner is a grumpy old man, he is burnt out, and needs to develop some people skills, take a leaf out of your bus driver Bruce’s book

We had 4 adults and 5 kids on the BBQ boat for a full day. It was amazing to be able to explore the lake and our leisure. Staff were wonderful to deal with and the boat was all in very good condition with pool noodles on board. Highly recommend hiring a BBQ for the day if you are heading to lake Argyle!!

Had an awesome afternoon cruising on Lake Argyle with Greg. The weather was perfect and Greg is an informative and entertaining host. We learnt of the history of the lake and surrounding area and saw some of the local wildlife. The Archer fish were quite hilarious. The scenery is beautiful, and amazing colours in the sky at sunset. After touring the lake, we made a stop just before sunset so we could watch the glorious sky and also take a dip in the lake. Noodle floats, dips , beer and bubbles were all supplied. Was such fun floating on a noodle while drinking a glass of bubbly, while the dip platter floated by on an upturned esky lid and such a glorious setting to do it in. Would recommend this fun & informative tour.

This is a great trip! Recommend it to anyone for a comprehensive look at beautiful Lake Argyle and to learn stuff about the place you might not find out elsewhere. Greg is a great host with an obvious love for the place and it’s history. It’s worth learning about the area to appreciate the pioneering spirit of those who started out farming here. Drinking bubbles and swimming at sunset is just brilliant - something those early settlers didn’t get to try!
