Far away by name and nature, Bruce and Robyn Ellison have made their home in a far corner of the Kimberley coast, one of Australia’s remotest and wildest spots.

There are eight spacious cabins dotted around the bush, offering privacy and 180-degree views of the spectacular cliff-lined bay. Six of the cabins have en-suite bathrooms with flushing toilet, hand basins and private outdoor solar heated spring-water showers. The other 2 cabins are part of the main building and have solar heated showers with bay views and flush toilets.

Eagle Lodge is the heart of the bay. This pole and corrugated iron roof structure is where guests can relax, enjoy the views and sample the excellent food. The building is perched on a rocky hillside overlooking the freshwater plunge pool and the eponymous Faraway Bay.

Activities on offer include cruises on the 30ft Diamond Lass to the nearby King George Falls; beach combing on untouched beaches; fishing; fresh water swimming at the lodge or in natural pools; star-gazing or visiting ancient rock art sites.

Why we love it

The camp gathering point, Eagle Lodge, is a pavilion perched on the cliff top from where guests can spot dugongs, sharks and crocodiles in the bay below.
