Activities

There are many ways to immerse yourself in the rich natural beauty of Berkeley River and the Kimberley wilderness beyond some adventurous, some enriching, some romantic and all led by our resident specialist guides.

River Cruises

Full-day and half-day Berkeley River cruises led by our resident skipper take in the natural treasures of this tranquil river system. Choose from cruises and gorge hikes to Casuarina Falls, a cooling dip in the secluded waterholes of Berkeley Creek and the chance to spot native flora and fauna, from saltwater crocodiles to rock wallabies and birds of prey.

Guided Hikes

Nature enthusiasts and keen photographers will be captivated by the astonishing diversity of flora, fauna and geological features surrounding The Berkeley River Lodge. Most of our guided hikes are led by our resident nature enthusiast, providing an introduction to the trees, plants and wildlife that inhabit the dunes, grasslands, mangroves and creeks. Our three most popular hikes have been graded on recommended fitness levels and you also have the option of grabbing an ‘Essentials Backpack’ to explore the area on your own.

Wilderness Picnics

Feast on a picnic lunch or a late afternoon antipasto platter, prepared by our renowned chef, beside secluded palm-fringed waterholes, the majestic Mount Casuarina or under our unique ‘Candelabra’ tree.

Bush & Beach 4WD Tours

A must for photography enthusiasts, our 4WD tours take in sweeping ocean views, curious rock formations and native wildlife in the early morning and late afternoon, when the colours and contrasts are at their most spectacular.

Sea Turtle Viewing

During nesting season female flatback turtles make the journey to our isolated beaches to lay their clutch of eggs. Join our resident turtle enthusiast for an after-dinner 4WD tour to share a magical moment with these gentle reptiles of the sea.

Sunset Drinks

We’ve searched near and far to find some of the best ocean and outback sunsets in the Kimberley. Drink them in, one sip at a time as you enjoy cocktails at dusk with your loved ones.
