Reviewed 25 July 2010

It's hard to know how to judge Faraway Bay - it costs more than Southern Ocean Lodge for very mediocre accommodation and meals, but it still provided most of the top highlights of a trip around the Kimberleys. The cabins are very very basic - if you get an ensuite the toilet has no door, but the outside showers are great. The chef did a good job but with second rate ingredients, apart from when some fresh fish was caught. So not worth the nearly $2000 per night by a long long long way.

But the boat trip to King George Falls is a wonderful experience and to learn about the rock art known as Bradshaw art, painted somewhere between 7000BC and 25000BC by who knows who, is mentally stimulating and exciting.

So do go, accept its not worth the money, but you'll never get an experience like it anywhere else. I rationalise that it saved us $20000 as we don't need to do a Kimberley cruise now.
