The mighty Ord River has two man made barriers along its length. There is the Diversion Dam which is about six kilometres west of the town and its purpose is to allow water to be diverted to the irrigated farming areas. Below this dam the river flows to the Cambridge Gulf. This stretch of river is a haven for barramundi fishing and also home to large saltwater crocodiles so swimming is not advised. Above the diversion dam Lake Kununurra is formed and is home to the water sports enthusiast.
Various companies operate boating tours along the 56 kilometre stretch of water between the Diversion Dam and the dam wall at Lake Argyle. The cruises pass through the Carlton Gorge with its magnificent cliffs and rock overhangs.
If visiting in the wet season after heavy rains you will witness many waterfalls cascading into the gorge. The permanent waters of Lake Kununurra have formed wetland areas which are fast becoming internationally recognised for the wonderful range of bird life they support.
For those wishing to see the gorge and river at their own pace you can hire a canoe and paddle from dam to dam. Allow three days for such an adventure.
