For over 30 years, Triple J Tours has taken East Kimberley visitors on the ride of their lives across the majestic Ord River. An unparalleled river cruise experience, Triple J is the only cruise operator to take you the full 55km, all the way from Diversion Dam near Kununurra to the Ord Top Dam.
They have three tours to choose from, each offering a rich encounter with region’s unique flora, gorges, and wildlife.
Ord River Day Tour
The operator’s most popular touring option, you will be collected from your accommodation at 11.30am and taken by coach through Durack country to Lake Argyle. Nearing Lake Argyle, the convoy will take a short break at the historic Durack Homestead Museum. Re-boarding the coach, the journey continues a short distance to Lake Argyle Resort before viewing the enormous Lake Argyle from a scenic look-out.
Crossing the Ord Top Dam wall, guests will see the Ord Hydro-Power Station before boarding their Triple J Tours boat for a scenic 55km cruise back to Kununurra. Marvel at the spectacular scenery, wildlife, flora and fauna found along the way, including the elusive freshwater crocodile! Enjoy afternoon tea at their Riverside Camp before heading back to Kununurra.
Ord River Day Tour & Riverside Lunch
This tour will take you the reverse route from the Ord River Day Tour. The journey includes a stop-over at one of the tour’s Riverside Camps for a sumptuous buffet lunch, before cruising up to the Ord Top Dam to witness the breath-taking Lake Kununurra. Plus, you’re also given the chance to delve into local history at the Durack Homestead Museum.
Ord River Cruise
If you have already been to Lake Argyle, then this is the cruise for you! You will be collected from your accommodation at 11.30am and taken by coach to board your Triple J Tour from the Marina. Remaining on the boat at the base of the Ord Top Dam, you will cruise back towards Kununurra, stopping for afternoon tea at a Riverside Camp. Scenic photographers will appreciate the contrast in colours as the light changes the way the gorges and ranges look on the return journey.
