Despite being a fairly young town, Kununurra sits on an ancient landscape where early Aboriginal tribes roamed. Initiated to service the Ord River Irrigation scheme, Kununurra is located approximately 40km from the Northern Territory border. Therefore the climate is similar to that of Darwin, with the dry season coming during winter.

Population: Approx 3,800

Kununurra would be a destination to consider if you’re currently in Northern Territory, from Perth it’s a huge journey!

Kununurra is also serviced by a local airport, which means it’s accessible by air as well. Otherwise coach is your next option or hitch hiking if your up for a challenge!

Accommodation

There’s accommodation a plenty, with backpacker hostels and and caravan parks in town. Farm stay accommodation is available at some locations, otherwise hotels and motel are your next point of call.

Not Fruit Picking – What to do?

  • Check out the local National Parks
  • Drive from Kununarra to Wyndham
  • The Hoochery ( WA’s only licensed distellery)

Extending Your Australian Working Holiday Visa

Many harvest jobs will meet the Second Australian Working Holiday Visa eligibility and count towards the 88 days of specified work. Some regional locations and jobs are ineligible which could lead to the Department of Immigration rejecting your application. So remember to confirm whether or not your fruit picking or harvest job will count towards the Second Australian WHV.
