Lake Argyle is designated as a RAMSAR Wetland. As such it is of international significance for an extremely large number and variety of birdlife. Over 240 species of birds have been recorded on or around the lake. At times individual flocks of certain species can number in the tens of thousands. Lake Argyle has also become known as one of the best locations in Australia to observe certain species that are often very difficult to find elsewhere. Some of these most sought after species that are commonly found include the Yellow Chat, Painted Snipe and the Long Toed Stint. A number of well-known birdwatchers regularly bring their clients to us, knowing that our experience and ability to find the sought after species is second to one.
Please book in advance to arrange a departure to suit your itinerary.

The inland sea was created in 1971, by damming the mighty Ord River, forming a storage reservoir to supply one of the country’s largest and most ambitious irrigation schemes. What was once “Argyle Downs”, a million acre cattle station, is now an immense body of water amid a largely untamed and rugged wilderness in the remote East Kimberley region of Western Australia. Aptly named “Lake Argyle”, this majestic waterway can at times encompass and area of more than 2000 km2, a volume of water equivalent to 54 Sydney harbours. With its ever changing moods and landscapes it has developed into a unique eco system, home to an amazing array of wildlife.

Average Duration: Half day
