Australia, Kununurra, 01 – 14 August 2020

Wyndham to Kununurra, a short drive, I stopped at a few interesting places along the way.

The Afghan Cameleers – were brought from British India and worked in the bush transporting goods before the arrival of the motor vehicle.

Moochalabra Dam – Wyndham Water Supply

The Boab with a Window to its Insides

The Grotto

Kununurra – a long way from anywhere. The largest town in this area with a permanent population of 5000 but this goes up in the dry season. The weather is tropical with day/night temperatures of 30/15 and no rain at all, very pleasant. I waited here for two weeks hoping the Western Australian border would open but there are no signs of that happening anytime soon with grandstanding politicians and salivating media frightening the mob. Therefore I have had to forego visiting the Northern Territory and start on my journey back to Perth.

Lake Argyle created by a Dam across the Ord River. The Durack Homestead was dismantled and moved to higher ground and is now a small museum.
