Kununurra is a mining and agricultural town in north-west Australia. It is located in the far east of the Kimberley and is only 37 kilometres from the border with the Northern Territory. There is a population of approximately 7000, about half of whom are North Australian Indigenous peoples. The town is surrounded by irrigated farmland and the main industries of the town are farming, mining and tourism. In land size, the Kununurra Parish is larger than Victoria and many of the Christian programs in the area have an Indigenous focus.
