Q: I saw Roy's Retreat on the BBC, can I visit without going on tour?
A: No. Barbara Walker at Roy's Retreat is a very busy lady and doesn't take visitors outside of tour hours. The only way to visit this amazing place is on the Beyond Argyle tour.
Q: Is the Stockman's Museum at Roy's Retreat the same as the Argyle Downs Homestead / Durack Homestead?

Q: Where is the food for your tours sourced from?
A: As local as possible! We love supporting local businesses and their amazing produce. Each dish is designed with the Kimberley and the Ord River Irrigation Area in mind. A big shout out to The Hoochery, ORIA Orchards, The Chia Company, Kimberley Beez Honey, Ocean to River Seafood and Tenderspot Meat Company Kununurra.
Q: What tour vehicle are we going in?
A: We have a comfortable and air-conditioned iconic orange Toyota 14 seater Troopy. You can't miss her!

Limited seats in the troopy are still available, please contact us prior to booking if you do not have a 4WD.
Q: Do you pick up from Kununurra accommodation or Kununurra Caravan Parks?

Q: Are your tours seasonal?
A: Yes. We operate in the dry season between April and October when the Kununurra weather and Lake Argyle weather is perfect!
