The Kwa’lilas Hotel (meaning a ‘place to sleep’) features 85 guest rooms plus meeting space to accommodate up to 150 people. A curated selection of authentic local Aboriginal art can be found throughout the hotel celebrating local traditions, stories and culture. Hotel guests can also choose to participate in a selection of eco-adventure tours and cultural experiences guided by community members and local experts.
