If you are fortunate enough to be getting married in the East Kimberley then you will want your reception to be held somewhere that matches the spectacular landscape around you. There could be no finer place to spend the evening with your nearest and dearest than the Argyle Homestead.
Built in 1895 the Homestead was the impressive home of the Durack family, the first European settlers in the Kimberley. Now a beautifully kept museum celebrating the life of these early pioneers, the Homestead is located near the banks of Lake Argyle, 70km from Kununurra. Managed by the Kununurra Visitor Centre, the Homestead has been the setting for many celebratory dinners, as well as featuring in the ABC series Mystery Road.
The evenings here are truly magical; as the light softens, the resident bower birds settle down for the night, wallabies might pop their heads up to see what’s going on, and you may hear dingoes in the distance as your friends and family gather to celebrate your big day.
The wide verandahs and well-kept lawns around the Homestead are the perfect place to host your reception in comfort and privacy. There’s plenty of parking, toilets with disabled access, good power for your lights and music and photo opportunities galore with the Homestead as a backdrop, to capture your very special moments.
