The Kimberley region in Western Australia is one of the most secluded and unspoiled parts of the world and the Berkeley River Lodge makes this otherwise inaccessible area accessible, without compromising on luxury. The resort offers unparalleled luxury indulgence, nestled between the beautiful Berkeley River and the breathtaking Timor Sea and is comprised of just 20 stunningly appointed villas.

At this outback oasis guests can choose to do as little or as much as you like during this all-inclusive, adults-only stay: relaxing by the pool or embarking on daily adventures for unforgettable nature experiences in the beautiful outback of the Kimberley Region, the choice is yours.
Due to its secluded nature, the Berkeley River Lodge is only accessible via air. Your package includes convenient return air transfers from Darwin Airport; sit back and relax as a private charter plane flies you over one of the most scenic locations in Australia. Check 'Fine Print' tab for air transfer times.

What We Like
The Berkeley River Lodge is an entirely unique resort and the perfect wilderness oasis for those seeking adventure off the beaten track, with waterfalls, swimming holes and rugged cliffs on it's doorstep as well as the opportunity to charter private heli-safaris to further explore the surrounding untamed landscape in style.
Experience the incredible flora and fauna native to this region; at particular times of the year you can witness turtles nesting and crocodiles bathing on the banks of the river, watch the native plantlife burst into life after the wet season rains, and catch a glimpse of dolphins or manta rays along the shoreline.
As well as a range of exotic bird life from the majestic White Bellied Sea Eagle to the much smaller and spectacular Rainbow Bee Eater; depending on which way and how carefully a guest looks, there is always something amazing to see in the Kimberley.
Getting to Berkeley River Lodge has never been easier with flights available from most major Australian cities connecting via Darwin. Access to Berkeley River Lodge is via plane transfer only as there is no road access, located in one of the last true wilderness areas on earth.

My husband and I visited for four nights and I can't speak highly enough of every single aspect of the experience! From the time we made the booking enquiry, until we left, the experience was completely first class. You truly feel as though everybody involved in your stay genuinely cares - which I think is a pretty rare feeling when travelling On top of all this the villas are unique and amazing and I can't say enough about the food. Still working off that couple of kilos they promise you when you arrive! I could literally feel the layers of city/work stress peeling off over the 4 days we were there. You can do as much or as little as you like but I would really recommend you take up the opportunities to see a bit of the area and the wildlife etc. as it is really incredible. "TripAdvisor

An excellent alternative to a cruise as a way to see the Kimberley's in style. Helitouring, fishing, boat tours and exploring on foot all kept the days full, with evenings spent enjoying drinks on the lodge verandah with the magnificent view of the cliffs and river-mouth, then fine dining under the stars. All the staff were fantastic and helpful, and the guides Gary and Bruce especially knowledgable and interesting. The best experience was a helicopter tour, flying low over the wetlands with a myriad of birds, then landing nearby for birdwatching, cheese and champagne, then onto a beautiful, remote rock pool for a swim and picnic. The rooms were lovely with a comfortable bed and great view. The outdoor bathroom added to the unique Kimberley experience."TripAdvisor
