Welcome to Triple J Tours and the East Kimberley!
Triple J Tours is a multi-award winning company that provides the longest continuous daily river cruise in Australia – 55km on the Ord River between Kununurra and the Ord Top Dam at Lake Argyle.
The first company to offer tours on the Ord River, Triple J Tours was formed in May 1988 and the company name is as a result of the first letter of the original three owner’s first names – Jeff, Jenny and Jamie.
The development of the Ord River Irrigation Area in the 1960s and 70s has seen the township of Kununurra flourish with a very successful agricultural industry. It has also become a very popular destination for nature-based and adventure tourism. Daily cruises navigate the massive stretch of river between the damming of the Ord River in two locations – the Diversion Dam was constructed in 1963 near Kununurra and the second damming occurred at Lake Argyle, 55kms upstream in 1972.
The Ord River provides one of the most stunning river systems in Australia – it is scenically beautiful and rich in wildlife and flora.
The area between Kununurra and the Ord Top Dam is a RAMSAR listed (RAMSAR empowers its member countries to maintain the ecological character of their Wetlands of International Importance and to plan for the “wise use”, or sustainable use, of all of the wetlands in their territories)water source and as such, a bird-lovers paradise.
Triple J Tours aim to ‘passionately provide the most informative and enjoyable river cruising experience in Australia’ – you won’t want to miss it!
