What You Can Expect

Bungle Bungle Scenic Flight Including Ground Tour of the Argyle Diamond Mine

Aerial view of the Argyle diamond mine site

Start your tour by either driving yourself to the Aviair terminal next to the Kununurra airport, or arriving there with a transfer from your Kununurra hotel. Once there, your pilot provides a briefing about your Bungle Bungle scenic flight before you board your 14-seater Cessna Caravan aircraft.

Soar over Lake Kununurra and the Ord River, hearing from your pilot about the Ord Irrigation scheme and other sites along the way. Glide above Lake Argyle and the Ord Top Dam Wall, then continue down to the Bungle Bungle Range and Purnululu National Park. Get great views of the beehive-shaped sandstone domes in the national park — designated a World Heritage Site. Have about 20 minutes to soak in the scenery before your pilot gently lands near the Argyle diamond mine.

Transfer to a minibus for the next part of your tour. See Argyle diamond jewelry and other souvenirs at the village store, then take a break for a buffet lunch. After eating, go to a lookout point over the open-cut mine site. Next, drive through the processing plant as your driver shares commentary about the processes of diamond production and life for the mine workers. At the end of the mine tour, check out a display gallery that showcases more than one million dollars worth of Argyle diamonds and jewelry.

Fly back to Kununurra by passing over the Carr Boyd ranges and Lake Argyle. At the end of your 6.5-hour tour, you are returned to your Kununurra hotel.
