The proposed mine closure date for the Argyle Diamond Mine is November 2020, meaning 2020 will be the last year of Argyle Diamond Mine tours at the operational mine site. This is the perfect combination for guests to enjoy both the Bungle Bungle Scenic Flight and the Argyle Diamond Mine tour. The Bungles Scenic Flight will have an 08:30am pick up from your accommodation to depart at 09:00am for a 1.5 hour Scenic Flight over Lake Argyle and the Bungle Bungle Ranges landing at the Argyle Diamond Mine. You are met by Traditional Owner Ted Hall of Luridgii Tours for a welcome to country before commencing an unforgettable tour through the mine, from the processing plant to the open pit. The Luridgii Guide will explain the cultural significance of this sacred site as well as the modern processes of how these beautiful diamonds are mined.
Continue on to the diamond shop where you can buy a diamond directly from the source and to the gallery that outlines the history and shows off an extraordinary display of coloured diamonds. We have a buffet lunch, then return through security where your Luridgii guide will drive you back through Miriuwung country to Kununurra, or you can transfer back to Kununurra via Lake Argyle. Enjoy an extended sunset cruise encompassing the whole length of Lake Argyle and its southern wetlands, stop at a remote island and fossick for the intriguing zebra rock and of course watch the sun set in the distance while sipping some complimentary beverages. A courtesy bus will take you from the Lake Argyle Marina to Kununurra arriving at approximately 7pm. If you are taking up the Lake Argyle transfer bring your bathers and towel for a sunset swim. Closed in shoes are required for the mine site.
