One day I was scrolling through my Facebook page and a photo popped up. It was a photo of an infinity pool overlooking a vast lake; I clicked on the link and was sent to an advert for Lake Argyle Resort. At that moment I decided that one day I would go there and see that pool and that view. Fast forward about 12 months, and who would have thought I would be swimming in that very pool and looking at that very view!
Lake Argyle Caravan Park is situated 35km off the Victoria Hwy about an hours drive from Kununurra, and for those pulling a caravan, the good news is that the road is sealed the whole way. There are over 100 powered sites and extra unpowered camping amongst the shady trees. We were only staying overnight so we didn’t get a good look around, but they apparently have new camp kitchen facilities, gas BBQs, laundry facilities and amenities blocks.
In addition to the camping, there are also self-contained cabins available.
We were booked into a cabin for the overnight stay. Our cabin was comfortable, with an ensuite and air conditioning, it was spacious and had a queen and single bed, a small kitchenette with a fridge and microwave, which; had we have been staying longer would have made it possible to self-cater, but we did make the most of having a fridge to keep our beer and wine cold.
On the caravan park, there is an onsite restaurant, bar and shop where you can buy basics such as bread, milk and ice etc. you can also get coffees and order breakfast from the shop as well as cold drinks and ice creams. The shop also houses the reception, tour desk and information centre.
The resort’s pool has the most magnificent setting; overlooking Lake Argyle. We were warned that the water in the pool is icy cold but nothing was going to deter me from having my photo taken with THAT backdrop!
As the sun started to set we were treated to entertainment from a singer on the lawn, it was so relaxing sitting on the lawn with our wine and nibbles watching the sun go down whilst listening to some chilled tunes.
After our sundowner we had a quick shower and headed to the restaurant for dinner. The restaurant is casual alfresco, set under trees strewn with fairy lights; orders are placed at the bar and you are given a number for your table. The place was pretty busy but our meals came out quite quickly. Our meals were the usual pub style offerings, substantial and excellent value for money. As the night carried on we were again entertained by the resident singer who had people up dancing along to his songs. Time permitted us only one night stay at the resort, but I would love to go back again and longer.
