Kununurra is the gateway to the spectacular east Kimberleys and traditional lands of the Mirriwoong and Gajirrawoong groups. Established along the Ord River Irrigation Scheme (ORIS), it lies close to Lake Argyle, Lake Kununurra and their respective RAMSAR protected wetlands. The nearby Gibb River Road and ranges include the El Questro Wilderness Park. The ORIS supports significant agriculture including sandalwood, mangoes, sugar and pumpkins.
