Kununurra is in the far north of the Western Region of Australia. It is a town nestled amidst scenic hills and mountain ranges of the north-east Kimberly Region. The town has an abundance of fresh water that is preserved by the Ord River Dam. The town was initiated to aid the Ord Irrigation Scheme.
Kununurra has a very transient population. Farmers and long-staying tourists increase during the dry season with farmers growing melons, Indian Sandalwood, Mangoes, and cotton.
The name Kununurra is derived from an anglicised pronunciation of the Miriwoong language word Goonoonoorrang which means ‘river’.
Tip: Birders will enjoy Kununurra because it lies within IBA- Ord Irrigation Area Important Bird Area because of its importance to birds such as estrildid finches.
