Is 4 nights in Kununurra long enough ?

Depends what you want to do really!

Are you planning to go to the Bungle Bungles, El Questro, Lake Argyle, do a Ord river cruise etc, etc? Because if you want to do it all (and maybe more) then no, I think 4 days isn't enough.

If you aren't planning to visit the Bungles (or at least are only doing it via scenic flight from Kununurra) then I'd be inclined to think you can fit what you want to do into 4 days.

I am thinking of booking a tour deal which includes 4 nights where tours include Lake Argyle,Ord River cruise, Durack Homestead and 2 hr flight over The Bungle Bungles. So I was wondering if I need to add extra nights before the return flights back to Perth.

All of that would only take two days. Cruises are really usually only 4 hours max unless they are day trip?

Are you going to get a car and do anytthing else around there?

El Questro is the next obvious target. Yes, you'd need a car but check with the hire company that they are ok with you going there on the Gibb River Rd (no hassles really, in fact its sealed to within 2km of Emma Gorge, but a lot of terms and conditions have blanket restrictions against the GRR).

Emma Gorge is worth going to as its different to what you see on the rest of your trip. El Questro gorge, Chamberlain Gorge, Zebedee Hot Springs, driving to the Pentecost River to drive through the Cockburn Ranges (backdrop to scenes in the Australia movie) are other options to do here.

You can day trip from Kununurra or stay the night at Emma Gorge/El Questro.

Another option is Keep River NP which again is day trip possibility from Kununurra. Might be a nice option if you aren't on the ground in the Bungles as it gives you the chance for walks in scenery which is heading in that direction. Again, check with your hire company if they are fine with you taking it there across the NT border and on the unsealed road.

4 days sounds quite leisurely for the tour activities? If you have spare time then sunset from Kellys Knob, sunset from Pumphouse bar and restaurant, Northwest Airboat croc-spotting cruise and short wanders in Hidden Valley NP can all be pleasant ways to spend time in Kununurra.
