Lake Argyle is Australia’s largest artificial lake by volume. It was completed in 1972 as part of the Ord Irrigation Scheme and is located in the East Kimberley, Western Australia. The primary inflow is the Ord River, while the Bow River and many smaller creeks also flow into the dam.
Lake Argyle normally has a surface area of about 1,000 square kilometres. The lake is home to around 26 species of native fish and a population of freshwater crocodiles estimated at some 25,000. The lake, with its surrounding grasslands supports about 150,000 water birds.
What Our Customers Are Saying
A girlfriend and I had the most amazing lengthy cruise over Lake Argyle on the Kimberley Cat (catamaran) from pre-lunch to sunset as part of our tour from Darwin to Broome.
It was brilliant and unforgettable!
I must have taken a hundred shots of the pristine water and the reflections on it from neighbouring land / islands… all could be entered into a photo competition, and I’m no photographer!
Our cruise included making our own wraps for lunch, we drank wine from what we carried on board, the weather was perfect (31 degrees), cloudless skies, and only about 20 on board a large, beautifully furnished, luxury catamaran.
We could sit anywhere we liked to relish the magnificent scenery – at a table, on deck, at the front, on the roof, or in the nets at the front. Superb, and given extended time to capture and soak it all in – 6 hours.
Brilliant. DO IT!Jennie Maxwell

The swims were refreshing (and relatively warm) and Rod our skipper was knowledgable and humorous when describing the gorgeous lake argyle.
