We were met at the airstrip by Steve, the Manager, after a wonderful flight from Kununurra. Steve's welcome and introduction would make anyone at home. Similarly, all the staff are friendly and well informed. Special mention must be made of Bruce, Suzie and Allie. We were fortunate to have a couple of helicopter flights. One was a heli fishing flight... More

I recently stayed at the Berkeley River Lodge (June 2016) for 6 nights and my only regret is I did not book longer. This unique lodge provides luxurious accommodation in a remote and spectacular part of Australia. Escaping the Melbourne winter I flew to Berkeley River with 2 teenage sons who were keen to fish.

We spent five fabulous day at the Berkeley River Lodge. One of the great things about the resort is that your first day starts some time around 9-10.00am with a fabulous breakfast rather than the normal 3.00pm that most resorts adhere to. Day 1 went for a cruise down the Berkeley River-simply stunning views-some of the best we have ever... More

We visited for a lunch break during a flight from Kununurra across the Mitchell Plateau.The place is truly magical, great service, friendly staff peaceful and quiet. The bungalows looked great and the people we met who were staying there were raving about it. We have firmly attached Berkeley Lodge to our bucket list for a visit in 2017
