The best hiking in Kununurra might also be some of the best in Australia, with more trails, waterfalls, and views than you can count.

Kununurra is filled with so much natural beauty, making it the perfect place to get some holiday exercise. Whether you’re looking for a challenge or a relaxing stroll, there’s a hike for everyone in Kununurra.

Let’s stretch our legs and get some fresh air as we explore the best hiking experiences Kununurra has to offer

Reach the highest point in Kununurra at Kelly’s Knob Lookout

For those who love a good sunrise and sunset, you can’t do much better than Kelly’s Knob Lookout.

The highest point in Kununurra, Kelly’s Knob Lookout, is located just a few kilometres outside of town and offers a 360-degree view of Kununurra. Whether you’re looking to check out the Ord River, Lake Kununurra, Elephant Rock, or the Kununurra Township itself, you can see it all from Kelly’s Knob lookout.

Keep in mind that there are a few steep sections along the climb up Kelly’s Knob; however, there are plenty of handrails and steps to help you out.

Get to the top of Elephant Rock

Now, we can’t possibly talk about views in Kununurra without mentioning Elephant Rock. Whether you’re looking at it or from it, Elephant Rock is truly one of the most incredible sites in Kununurra.

Whether you want to hike with pace or talk it slow with a walk, Elephant Rock has plenty to offer most people looking for a bit of outdoor exercise and sightseeing.

Cool off at Emma Gorge

Are you looking to beat the heat? There’s nowhere better to do it than Emma Gorge!

Easily one of the most popular places to visit in Kununurra, Emma Gorge is a relatively short hike at around 90 minutes. However, the reward is worth putting in the leg work when you arrive at one of Kununurra’s best watering holes. Don’t forget to bring your bathers!

Mirima National Park

Often referred to as the ‘mini Bungle Bungles’ or Hidden Valley, you’ll find Mirima National Park just a few minutes from the heart of Kununurra.

Stretch your legs and get a bit of exercise by exploring one of the stunning walks within the park.

The only problem with Mirima National Park is deciding which hike to explore. Mirima National Park features four walking trails: the Gerliwany-gerring Banan trail, Derdbe-gerring Banan trail, Looking at Plants trail, and the Demboong Banan trail. Whichever trail you choose, you really can’t go wrong here.

Molly Springs

About 30 kilometres from Kununurra towards Wyndham, you’ll find the delightful spring-fed pool that is Molly Springs.

While the pool at Molly Springs might be small in size, it’s a fantastic place to cool off, relax, and be at one with nature.

Accessible all year, you’ll find the path to Molly Springs just after crossing Weaner Creek.

After all that hiking, you’ll need somewhere to rest your head. Book your stay at Kununurra Country Club Resort today!
