Berkeley River Lodge
The Uncharted Outback
No roads lead to the Berkeley River Lodge on the Kimberley Coast of Australia, and that's exactly how we like it
There are very few unreachable places left on earth, even in a land as vast as Australia. It’s rare to discover an untouched coastal wilderness that only a handful of individuals have the appetite for adventure to seek out. One such place is the Berkeley River Lodge on Australia’s Kimberley Coast. White sandy beaches, river gorges, and waterfalls set the tone at this truly spectacular basecamp Down Under.
Nestled into the scrub-covered dunes of the Joseph Bonaparte Gulf, the most striking aspect of the Berkeley River Lodge is hands-down its location. The closest town is Wyndham, over 90 miles away, and in order to reach the lodge from there, you must travel either by boat or plane. Once you arrive, it’s just you and a handful of other guests there to soak in the astounding landscape and elements of the Australian coast.
Twenty architecturally inspired villas crest a 200-foot-high sand dune, with sweeping 180-degree views. Whether your suite gazes out over the Bonaparte Gulf all the way to Reveley Island or to the mouth of the red-walled Berkeley River, you might just never close the blinds. A quick walk brings you to the main lodge, where a pool, library, and restaurant offer creature comforts galore.
When you have an entire coastline to yourself, any activity is sure to involve a sense of virgin exploration and wonder. Not yet at home with the critters of Australia’s outback? Join a Berkeley River guide on the adventure of your choosing, from a river cruise and guided hike to heli-fishing. Jump in a four-wheel-drive to explore the unending terrain by morning and observe sea turtles at sunset. Top it all off with a glass of chilled Australian wine overlooking a true outback sunset. Then wake up and do it all over again.
