Situated at Australia’s oldest Pearl Farm, the accommodation at Kuri Bay exudes history with comfort and was inaccessible to the public prior to 2016.
Located around 330kms north of Broome in the middle of the Lalang-Garram/Camden Sound Marine Park Kuri Bay boasts some of the Kimberley’s most stunning coastline.
The vista from the dining room is mind blowing and matched by the chefs imagination on how to prepare oysters you’ve collected, coral trout you’ve jigged or mud crab you’ve trapped.
Arguably the Kimberley’s leading fishing guide now has exclusive access to this marine wonderland at the invitation of Paspaley Pearls, which offers some of the best fly and lure fishing options in this incredibly remote location.
The variety of fishing options will astound. Sand flats, gorges, estuaries and creeks through to pelagic action and many tasty reef dwellers including coral trout.
The waters of Kuri Bay are crystal clear unlike much of the Kimberley and provide great site casting for both fly and lure enthusiasts.
Visual fishing the flats for barra, popping for giant trevally, jigging monster reef dwellers, tangling with leaping metre long queenfish, trolling for pelagic speedsters and billfish are all on the cards.
For the fly fishermen there’s also a resident population of blue bastards that can be tempted and are a great species to tick off the bucket list if you haven’t already.
Adding a helicopter to the equation for a day opens up a variety of further barra fishing opportunities along coastal creeks and inland billabongs. There’s some seriously big fish in hardly ever fished waterways.
It’s feasible to experience 40 different species spending 5 or 6 days at Kuri Bay, many in jumbo proportions.
Access is by Mallard Flying Boat which is a big highlight of the trip, flying over 2 of the Kimberley Coasts iconic landscapes, the Horizontal Falls and Montgomery Reef.
Probably the premier land based sportfishing destination on the Kimberley Coast.
