In one of the last true wilderness areas on Earth, between Timor Sea sunrises and Berkeley River sunsets, the ultimate Kimberley adventure and refined indulgence awaits. Only accessible by air, getting to the Berkeley is half the adventure. Leave modern life far behind and relax into the rhythms of nature in your ocean-view villa.
Enjoy breathtaking wilderness landscapes by river cruise or helicopter flight.
The luxury villas are perfectly positioned along a 200 ft (65-metre) high dune to command 180-degree panoramas sweeping from Joseph Bonaparte Gulf to Reveley Island, or from the mouth of the Berkeley River to its rugged red gorges beyond.
Your air-conditioned private retreat features a king sized bed and open-air ensuite, complete with dual vanities and a free-standing bath tub for bathing in the Kimberley moonlight. And beyond the dramatic glass frontage, the occasional seating and daybed on your deck beckons you to laze away an afternoon.
The Berkeley River Lodge is open from early March to late October and offers different experiences depending on the time of the year you visit.
In the Kimberley there are two seasons referred to as the ‘wet’ and ‘dry’. The wet extends from November to April, bringing with it hotter days and balmy nights, along with incredible lightning shows and tropical storms. The waterfalls during this time of the year are truly spectacular.
The dry season is May to October, with clear blue skies, fine warm days and cool nights. The coolest months are June, July and August. From a seasonal perspective April and May can be a very spectacular time as it is an important transition time from the wet to the dry.
Surroundings are green and lush and waterfalls are flowing. With The Berkeley River Lodge’s location, on top of a sand dune and surrounded by ocean, you can always be assured of a sea breeze and it is generally several degrees cooler than the forecast for nearby towns of Wyndham or Kununurra.
The Kimberley is one of the nine regions of Western Australia. It is in the northern part of Western Australia, bordered on the west by the Indian Ocean, on the north by the Timor Sea, on the south by the Great Sandy and Tanami Deserts, and on the east by the Northern Territory.
