Kununurra is the gateway to the Kimberley and the World Heritage Listed Purnululu National Park (Bungle Bungle). It is a picturesque and modern town, established in 1960 as the centre for the Ord River Irrigation project. The town has become the major administrative centre for the East Kimberley, servicing farmers, pastoralists and the rapidly developing tourism and mining industries. With a resident population of around 7,500 it is one of the biggest towns in the Kimberley.

The Argyle Diamond Mine produces around 8 million carats of diamonds per year. This is a large portion of the world’s production and includes the rare Argyle pink diamond. It is also one of the world’s most technologically advanced mines. Tours are available; however, bookings are essential, as access to the mine is restricted.
