The Best Accommodation In Kununurrafor Wildlife
Kununurra is a birdwatcher and wildlife watchers dream! Brimming with wildlife from tiny finches to prehistoric crocodiles. The town of Kununurra was built in the 1960’s near the Ord River for its irrigation potential, it is nestled around the stunning Lily Creek Lagoon which feeds off the year roundflowing Ord River. The proximity of town to this beautiful water course provides plenty of opportunity for interaction with wildlife, and there is a lot of wildlife that can be viewed straight from the doorstep of your accommodation in Kununurra.
It is not uncommon to drive down the Victoria Hwy and spot a freshwater croc in the lagoon, or a crimson finch in the cumbungi grass surrounding the water. When looking for the most interesting accommodation Kununurra WA has to offer, read further for our suggestions around the beautiful Ord River.
There are a number of Kununurra accommodation houses facing Lily Creek Lagoon providing you with ample opportunity to observe birds and reptiles.
