Reviewed 8 July 2016

A magical place in an amazing part of the country. Booking experience is a sign of things to come. Very guest oriented and Kathie can't do enough to help you. The Faraway Bay experience is so unique, not just because of the many activities on offer, but the incredible hospitality of Kevin, Gemma and Sarah. Rarely are you made to feel as welcome and comfortable as at Faraway Bay. Once in a lifetime experiences unfold daily and the food is beyond incredible.
We will definitely be back to experience Faraway Bay all over again.
Tip: Suggest a minimum 4 night stay to really take advantage of all this beautiful location has to offer.

Had a fabulous time at Faraway Bay, this place is a must if you want to see the Kimberleys! The food is delicious and beautifully presented, and I can highly recommend the cocktails
We had some fantastic day trips to see the King George Falls and various rock art sites, it was a real privilege to see this ancient art in such natural surroundings, and the owner Kevin is very knowledgable and informative.
The resort itself is beautiful, with a gorgeous pool, spa and a very comfy hammock!
Take the time to visit this gorgeous region and stay at Faraway Bay, you definitely won't regret it.

If you ever get a chance, this is one trip to add to your must list for those who are interested in native Australian rock "art". Also add in the beautiful weather late June and the amenities at the "bush" camp. It is much more than a bush camp with pool, spa and sumptuous meals. This is not a place to lose weight unless you have non-human will power. The fly in is an eye opener too and from all accounts there are fish to catch from boats. There are salt water crocodiles so swimming and beach fishing are a good way to feed the animals. A stroll along beaches above the high water line with care should be ok. Use their pool and spa. I would have remained longer if the tour was longer.

I am so glad I went here. It's such an amazing place with so much to see and explore, everything from beautiful aboriginal rock art to awesome waterfalls.
The food is delicious and the place has a great atmosphere. This is mostly down to the owner, Kevin, who is a great cook and the manager of the place, and of course the friendly staff too Stay at Faraway Bay, you won't regret it!

Our time at Faraway Bay was most enjoyable. Although still hot in March, each day was spent out in the boat exploring the beautiful Kimberley coastline: waterfalls, bird life, turtles and fish. The accommodation is amazing considering the remoteness of the resort and the hospitality and meals superb.
