Multi-award winning Aviair operates Kununurra’s newest and only fully air-conditioned fleet of aircraft, with easy access to seating via a centre aisle. Each of our aircraft have high wings and large windows for great viewing opportunities with your experienced pilot providing commentary on every flight.

Aviair is the specialist when it comes to touring the spectacular Kimberley region, including the World Heritage listed Purnululu National Park where the Bungle Bungle range enthrals visitors. The remote Mitchell Falls and Kimberley Coast are equally spectacular in their natural beauty and an air tour is the best way to explore.

Choose from a range of spectacular scenic flights across the Kimberley, with the option to add on a guided walk through the Bungle Bungle Domes into Cathedral Gorge, or Echidna Chasm in the northern end of Purnululu National Park. For the ultimate Kimberley experience, add on a stay in the eco-accredited Bungle Bungle Savannah Lodge and spend the night in the heart of the national park.
