The hotel in detail

Set between the rugged northern Kimberley coastline and the mouth of the River Berkeley, Berkeley River Lodge offers the chance to discover and explore one of Australia’s most isolated destinations. Guests arrive by seaplane or light aircraft to start the wilderness adventure, while 20 ultra-comfortable villas, a fine dining restaurant, a lap pool and deck overlooking the Timor Sea, provide those special creature comforts.

The stunning private villas at Berkeley River Lodge are perched on a 65-metre high dune, and provide amazing views of the sea or the Berkeley River with its impressive red rock gorges. Large, floor-to-ceiling windows open onto a deck with seating and a daybed from which to take in the views. Relax in the moonlight in your open-air bath and feel truly at one with nature.

Discover the ancient, 350 million-year-old gorges along the river and enjoy a spot of fishing with towering dark orange cliffs as a backdrop. Take a guided walk or four-wheel-drive tour and discover the area’s rich and diverse eco system including mangroves, saltwater crocodiles, sea turtles and sharks. Take a helicopter flight to King George and Mitchell Falls, and then visit some ancient sites with indigenous rock art. Return to Berkeley River Lodge for a relaxing swim before dinner in the restaurant.
