Venue Setting

The Berkeley River Lodge’s restaurant ‘Dunes’ combines flavours as rich as the scenery with unprecedented views across the expanse of the Timor Sea and the impressive backdrop of the Berkeley River mouth, Reveley Island, and the spectacular Kimberley coastline. The Berkeley River Lodge offers a casual yet decadent dining experience featuring breakfasts cooked to order, and multi course degustation lunch and dinner menus teamed with a fine selection of Australian wines. Fresh breads are baked three times daily to guarantee only the freshest is served. If you prefer you can request your own culinary style with our chef open to recreating your favourite dish (with his own twist of course!). Only the best quality ingredients are used, sourced globally (i.e. organic stone milled polenta from Italy, 300 day grain fed Black Angus from Armidale, NSW, Oak barrel smoked Salmon from Tasmania) and a wide selection of fine Australian and European Artisan cheeses. Head Chef Paul Seymour has a real passion for remote locations and has worked in high end establishments and award winning venues. With Pauls’ previous roles as Head Chef at Nightingale Wines and Warrenmang Vineyard Resort , prior to taking up the reins in the kitchen at Berkeley River Lodge he has gained a reputation for his culinary genius and meticulous approach to personalising any menu to suit our guests. All chefs menus and recipes are available upon request. The Lodge’s cultured yet discerning service amid a casual environment welcomes you at every meal and our resident sommelier will ensure your meals are complimented with wines to enhance the flavours on the palate.

Venue Features
The Scene:
Berkeley River is a luxury wilderness experience like no other – the perfect blend of remote Kimberley coast, river and outback adventure, complemented with unrivalled opulence. From your dune-top villa, you’re just a sandy-footed stroll away from pristine wildlife-rich bushland and secluded beaches, where the only frequent visitors are dolphins, dugongs and turtles. On a river cruise, you can glide by towering rugged cliffs to the remotest freshwater swimming holes, stunning waterfalls and majestic gorges, where the peace and tranquility is broken only by birdsong. And by helicopter, a whole world of little-known treasures opens out before you, perhaps take a aerial adventure over King George Sound and Mitchell Falls, to guided tours of some of the oldest rock art on Earth. Of course, there’s also the opportunity to master the fine art of doing as little as possible. Relax in your villa or on your deck, drinking in the expansive ocean and river views. Bathe in your private open-air bathroom, gazing up at a star-filled Kimberley night sky.
