Fun Things to do in Kununurra
The school holidays are here! While it may be a bit of juggling act for mums and dads, we can be certain that the kids are enjoying their break and making the most of their time off.
For those who live in Western Australia and Kununurra, in particular, we are truly blessed. There are so many wonderful things to do both indoors and outdoors. We may be remote, but our small town definitely has a big heart, and we always come together as a community to get things done.
If you are visiting the area and are looking for some fun things to do, check out these sights.
Warmun Art Centre: Art is very much a part of the indigenous culture and artists at the Warmun Art Centre draw on traditional stories and modern life to create their artwork. Stop for a browse – you may even find the perfect piece to take home with you.
Kununurra Museum: Manned by volunteers from the Kununurra Historical Society, the Kununurra Museum is open 7 days a week. You can learn a lot about the local history through their collection of fossils and other artifacts.
Lake Kununurra: Lake Kununurra is ideal for swimming and boating. You can take a cruise up the river or just enjoy a leisurely stroll on the shore. It is a highlight of our picturesque town with plenty of flora and fauna to admire. The sunsets here are just amazing!
The Sandalwood Factory: The Sandalwood Factory houses a large range of sandalwood products. Through their tour, you can touch the samples of wood at various stages and smell the strong scent of sandalwood which has been used since ancient times.
The Grotto: This small natural watering hole just outside Kununurra is worth a visit. The colours of the landscape are just stunning and it is a great way to cool off from the hot sun. If you are visiting during the rainy season, you get the added benefit of a waterfall. Don’t forget your underwater camera.
Kelly’s Knob: For those keen on a bit of activity and exercise, you can take the time to climb Kelly’s Knob. The views are spectacular and it will give you an excuse to sample some of the lovely restaurants and coffee shops in the town afterwards without guilt.
