Berkeley River Lodge

In one of the world’s last true wilderness areas, between Timor Sea sunrises and
Berkeley River sunsets, the ultimate Kimberley adventure and refined indulgence await.

Only accessible by air or sea, getting to The Berkeley is half the adventure. From your ocean-view villa, floating atop the coastal dune, a whole world of little-known natural treasures unfolds before you. Stroll to secluded beaches. Cruise through majestic gorges. Heli-fish hidden gems.

Twenty luxury villas are perfectly positioned along a 65-metre-high dune to command 180-degree panoramas sweeping from Joseph Bonaparte Gulf to Reveley Island, or from the mouth of the Berkeley River to its rugged red gorges beyond.
The Main Lodge is just a short stroll from your villa. Here, you can cool off in the 20m lap pool or lounge with a book from the lodge library as well as enjoy the sprawling views of the Kimberley coastline from their Dunes restaurant.

To ensure guests enjoy the best of the Berkeley’s many extraordinary landscapes and experiences, all land and water-based activities, including scenic river and coastal cruises, bush and beach 4WD tours, guided walks and fishing tours are also included.
