Great trip! We had a very relaxing 5 days out at Faraway bay. We were looked after so well with delicious food, friendly hosts and were kept comfortable in our ocean view cabins with outdoor showers! We caught Barramundi, saw manta rays jumping and turtles sticky beaking. Good family time with my husbands family :-) If you are a nature...

Together with my travelmate Ellen, I have stayed at Faraway Bay for 2,5 weeks. We are backpackers traveling through Australia and got so lucky to be asked to come to Faraway Bay and help out Kevin and Gemma as temp staff on a voluntary basis. Every day of this 2,5 week stay, I was amazed by the beauty of this...

FAB bush camp was unique in every way. Comfortable rooms, great food (too much), friendly staff with local stories and daily excursions and fishing. The coastal scenery, rock art and bird life added to this unique holiday.

The trip from the airstrip was a bit bumpy, but then you can't have an airstrip next to a luxury bush camp that has fantastic views out across Faraway Bay. Anyway, Kevin's commentary on the drive was entertaining and informative. At Faraway Bay, you are far way. No roads to this spot, everything comes in the light aircraft. My wife...

We were delighted to return to Faraway Bay, being five years since we last enjoyed the many pleasures of this sensational luxury bush camp. This time we came for the 2016 rock art retreat and Kevin and Ju Ju (Aboriginal Elder representing traditional owners) certainly delivered on what this retreat had promised. During four days, we were privileged to spend...

If you ever get a chance, this is one trip to add to your must list for those who are interested in native Australian rock "art". Also add in the beautiful weather late June and the amenities at the "bush" camp. It is much more than a bush camp with pool, spa and sumptuous meals. This is not a place...

Our time at Faraway Bay was most enjoyable. Although still hot in March, each day was spent out in the boat exploring the beautiful Kimberley coastline: waterfalls, bird life, turtles and fish. The accommodation is amazing considering the remoteness of the resort and the hospitality and meals superb.
