Western Australia And Lake Argyle

Victoria River was our last overnight stop in the Northern Territory. Now it is on to the west and we cross the border into Western Australia.

Lake Argyle is Western Australia’s largest and Australia’s second largest freshwater man-made reservoir by volume. The reservoir is part of the Ord River Irrigation Scheme and is located near the East Kimberley town of Kununurra. The primary inflow is the Ord River, while the Bow River and many other smaller creeks also flow into the dam.

Not a good place for a swim – spot the fresh water crocodile on the bank next to the dam wall. ‘Freshies’ are supposed to be a lot smaller than their salt water cousins, the ‘Salties’ but this one seems to be bucking that trend.

Beautiful sunset.
