Western Australia is a State filled with some of the world’s most unique landscapes, and right up there with the most stunning is the Kimberley region in WA’s North West. A wilderness like no other, the rugged, ancient land is steeped in history both natural and spiritual, with Aboriginal culture in the area dating back over 40,000 years.
It’s for this reason that the Argyle Diamonds Ord Valley Muster has become one of the must-do activities on WA’s events calendar, serving as not only a remarkable experience on its own, but as the eastern gateway to the Kimberley – a spectacular world of rugged ranges, stunning gorges, waterfalls, pockets of rainforest, pristine sandy beaches and untouched islands and reefs.
Where is it?
The Ord Valley Muster takes place in Kununurra, located on the eastern extremity of the Kimberley, only around 45km from the Northern Territory border and over 3000km northwest of Perth.
The quickest way to get there is fly, and Virgin Australia are currently offering $249 one way flights from Perth to Kununurra – cheaper than they’ve ever been!
When is it?
The Ord Valley Muster usually takes place around mid- to late-May, with the 2021 edition running over nine days from May 21 until May 29. It sits nicely in the Kimberley region’s dry AKA ‘peak’ season, with warm and comfortable temperatures and minimal rain between April and October.
What to do:
The Ord Valley Muster is action-packed with activities centred around the Festival Hub located at Celebrity Tree Park in Kununurra. The days are filled with music, comedy, performing arts, food, drink and more, with the centrepiece of the festival, the Kimberley Moon Experience, taking place on Saturday 22 May. Outwards from there is a raft of once-in-a-lifetime experiences, check the full rundown HERE and a few selected highlights below:
