Get Wet Tour

There are some beautiful places around Kununurra where you can cool off.

The hostel at Kununurra offers this tour. It’s very worth while, as they take you out to some, well, wet places (hence the name!). These include the following.

Zebra Rock Gallery

This is the only non-wet stop. It is a gallery where you can see and buy Zebra Rock, a rare type of rock which is patterned like a zebra. Layers of silicon and iron oxide colour the rock white and red respectively. The rock can be found on a single site in Lake Argyle only. The gallery sells wine bottle holders, animal figures and other (touristic) souvenirs. You can visit the workshop.

Valentine Springs

Now it gets wet! This is a beautiful spot on a river crossing the dirt road which the tour takes. The water was very warm, and a pool invites even the utmost non-swimmer to have a dip.

Middle Springs

A little side track leads to a small pool, enclosed on three sides by trees, bushes and reed. On the fourth side a steep cliff side produced a waterfall, which was active at the time we visited the place. Great spot to unwind and relax. You can climb the cliff on one side and look at all the water pools atop of it. Take lots of film with you while climbing, as you’ll get a great view of the surrounding area.

Middle Springs. Here you can have a rest and cool down while swimming in the beautiful water. Middle Springs. Here you can have a rest and cool down while swimming in the beautiful water.

Black Waterfall

It is really black! It’s gorgeous as well! You come to a steep cliff again, rising some 20 metres in front of you. In the Wet a waterfall rushes down and small algae grow on the rock, colouring it black. At the base there’s a pool again with cool water, just the right thing to cool you down on a hot day.
