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.
Full-day and half-day Berkeley River cruises led by our resident skipper take in the natural treasures of this tranquil river system.

Nature enthusiasts and keen photographers will be captivated by the astonishing diversity of flora, fauna and geological features surrounding The Berkeley River Lodge.

Here, you have the opportunity to fish where only the privileged few have ever cast a line, with some locations so remote, they can only be reached by helicopter.
