Easy track
Starting from PumpHouse Restaurant & Bar, Kununurra, this walk takes you on a circuit in Ord River Valley, passing along Lake Kununurra. This walk is suitable for families with children as it has a hardened flat surface, and it provides visitors with open views along the shoreline. Additionally, Lake Kununurra is host to crocodiles, and it is also possible to see wild birds such as estrildid finches and other waterbirds. Lake Kununurra is known to have fresh crocodiles, and saltwater crocs have got into the area in the past; swimming is not recommended. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
