Owner description: 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.

What a great tour with Matt at Lake Argyle Cruises...we did the sunset cruise and thoroughly enjoyed the fascinating narration, the rock wallabies, the euros (hill kangaroos, not the EU currency) and the freshwater crocodiles. The scenery was rugged, vast and luminous when lit by the setting sun. A cruise is the perfect way to get a sense of the enormity of this lake and the engineering feat created by the relatively tiny dam wall. For those who want a fuller day, the 'Best of Argyle' cruise is an excellent choice. Thank you for a great afternoon Matt and Creg.

Collected from accomodation in Kununurra and about 1 hour drive to Lake Argyle with driver Phil who kept us up to date with a well informed commentary on the agricultural history of the area. Stopped at the amazing (relocated) Durack Homestead Museum on the way. Transferred to a comfortable boat skippered by a knowledgable Matt who gave us a comrehensive history of the Lake and Ord River Dam and pointed out many items of interest including fresh water crocodiles, rock wallabies and many bird species. Watched the sun set over the Lake. A great experinece not to be missed.
