Your getaway with Ord River Houseboats offers you the opportunity to be as active or as leisurely as you choose....or a little bit of both. Fishing, swimming, hiking and exploring the river all await you. Seasonally (mid to late wet season) there are multiple waterfalls and rock pools for you to explore. Sooty Grunters (Black Bream) and Silver Cobbler (Catfish) are there ready to take, and offer fantastic fly fishing opportunities. Or you can throw one of the provided nets overboard for some red claw. FIshing tips provided during induction for anyone who asks! Baby Barramundi are currently happily growing in Lake Kununurra, as 30,000 fingerlings were released in early 2013 and will be ready to catch sometime in 2014!
Otherwise, you can simply pour yourself a drink, sit back on one of three decks, and take in the magnificient views and scenery. Bird watchers are in paradise along the river, with many different species present including Lotus Birds and Jabirus. Many of the gorges along the river have rock wallabies present, and they are often sighted. Or, just curl up on the lounge with a good book, a board game, movie, music or some leisurely conversation with friends or family.
