Owner description: LAKE ARGYLE CRUISES is the original tour company on Lake Argyle. We offer a range of scenic cruises catering for individual travellers as well as tour groups. Our fleet of purpose built vessels offer comfortable seating and unobstructed views that leave many customers exclaiming words such as “amazing”, “breathtaking”, and “unbelievable”. Lake Argyle is Australia’s largest expanse of fresh water. It boasts over 26 species of native fish and supports a commercial fishery as well as the newly established Aquaculture industry. Latest research estimates up to 25,000 Johnstone River Fresh Water crocodiles inhabit Lake Argyle, Rock Wallabies thrive in rocky crevices close to the water’s edge, Eros (Wallaroos) on the islands have adapted to feed on the lakes aquatic plants. We specialise in observing wildlife, but due to the nature of wild animals it cannot be guaranteed you will see all that is described in this brochure. At Lake Argyle village above the Main Dam you will find motel style cabins, shop, bar, restaurant and a caravan park. Drop in and try the local catch, “Silver Cobbler” delivered fresh daily. Nearby is the Historical Durack Family Homestead Museum. 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. There is no better was to capture all of this outstanding beauty than to take a cruise with Lake Argyle Cruises. We offer a selection of tours catering for the individual traveller as well as large tour groups. Specialised charters such as bird watching, bush walking and exploration can be arranged with prior notice.

We did an early morning cruise on this amazing man made lake. Incredibly large and very unexpected in this part of WA. The tour guide Greg was brilliant and loved sharing his knowledge of the lake, birds, fish and crocs. A great experience.

we booked the sunset cruise on Lake Argyle, not expecting much.
But it was just great. From the cruise around the lake and its history, stories of the thousands of crocs in lake(freshies, so they don't bite).
Then at sunset into the water in the middle of lake bobbing around with glass of wine or two and sun setting in background. Just fabulous.
We also did the Durack cottage visit worthwhile.
Our cabin was very spacious and clean.

Lake Argyle is spectacular and the reserve area and surrounds are just amazing. The Lake Argyle sunset cruise with Matt &Greg is brilliant value @$90 pp. The water colours,rock formations & dam are spectacular.Matt's information & history relayed to us was so interesting and he is very passionate of the whole area and this makes their cruise as brilliant as it is. The sunset,swimming in the Lake whilst enjoying drinks & nibbles is so unique and we would highly recommend this experience. This is a must do a major highlight of our Kimberley experience. Thanks for keeping the price reasonable & affordable. We have recommended this trip to so many travellers that we have met in the last month. April 2014. Vicki & Trevor

Just back from the Lake Argyle Sunset Cruise - absolute magic! The commentary from Matt was informed, interesting and relaxed. His knowledge of the lake, its wildlife and history was exceptional. The scenery was delightful. And the champagne at sunset was the icing on the cake. A truly memorable experience, and a 'must do' when in the East Kimberleys.
