From our guests…



“Fantastic experience – My partner and I spent three fantastic nights at Faraway Bay last week. It really is an experience not to be missed .. The highlight for me was our day out on the boat to visit the King George Falls … we managed to climb to the top and after our descent were showered under the falls followed by a glass of champagne! Thank you so much Kevin, you do an amazing job in such a remote landscape. Thanks also to Gemma and the girls for making our stay so enjoyable.” Southpawz, TripAdvisor, June 2014


“Faraway Bay – What a place! Eagle Lodge – what a concept.  Thanks you everyone it has been a great pleasure and privilege for us to have shared its wonders.  Hopefully, it’s “au revoir”

From Rob & Noel Kimpton from far, far, faraway Mt. Martha,Mornington Peninsula, VIC May 2014


“Fantastic and unique … Wonderfully run to provide an experience that is literally unique due to location, friendliness and quality. The site allows access to unspoiled beauty, and the management work to ensure guests are treated to a variety of activities that show the beauty, culture and wilderness of the place. The food is excellent, and the resort cultivates friendships. Just the best.”

Edward Truman, Avalon Beach NSW, May 2014


“Words cannot express our gratitude to you for giving us a truly remarkable ‘Kimberley’ experience that we believe you could not find anywhere else in the Kimberley, but here in the magnificent, remote, stunning Faraway Bay – a true gem in the red dust. You made our six days ones we will never forget.”

Max and Pam Goldsmith, Newport Beach NSW, April 2014


“Words cannot say how fantastic this holiday was.  Kevin is one in a million, for his care of us both. But beware he will make you do things you thought you never could.  He is on person you could and can trust with your life , we both cannot wait to come back again “Enjoy every moment”. Hugs to Kevin & Girls

Dianne & Tony Roe, Swan Valley WA, April 2014


“This was a totally unique experience being out in the Kimberley wilderness for four days and also having the pleasure of the great food and companionship. We’ve never seen anything like this. I have never seen people who worked so hard to make our stay a pleasant one. This is our first time to the Kimberley and one we will always remember.”

George Fisher and Gail Sugiama, Oakland California USA, April 2014


“Kevin, it is clear that you really love what you do and that clearly comes across in so many ways to make this a very special experience. From your expertise in handling the boat, your respect and love of the land, and of course the food and wine. You provide a safe adventure in an otherwise untouched environment. Deep appreciation for an unforgettable experience!”

Daniel Brown and Gretchen Nelson, USA, April 2014


“At a single, communal dinner table beneath an open-air lodge, 11 other guests and I tucked into its (fish caught that day) sweet white flesh, sprinkled with local mango salsa. The table was covered in made-from-scratch food…It was incredible what was produced from a rustic kitchen that has to wait for an ocean barge or light plane to bring in supplies. Almost as incredible as the view from the lodge’s cliff-top hammock, which overlooks a bay harbouring dugongs and crocodiles. I never wanted to leave. I even volunteered to work as an unpaid dishwasher, just so I could spend more time there. I suspect I am not the first.”

Fleur Bainger, Australian Traveller Magazine (favourite dining memories), Aug/Sept 2013


”This is about as far from a Bordeaux château or Champagne crayère as you can get. At Faraway Bay you drink Margaret River chardonnay and grand cru white Burgundy in shorts and thongs while the day’s fresh catch sits perfectly cooked on your plate … Faraway Bay’s owner, expert fisherman and incredibly adaptable head chef Kevin Reilly turns out food of a standard unmatched for a thousand miles.”
