Kununurra & Wyndham, The Savannah Way

Our first stop in Western Australia was at Kununurra and we really enjoyed exploring the town and a day trip up to Wyndham.  The scenic beauty of the region is enhanced by the access to water, allowing the cultivating of crops through the Ord River irrigation scheme. It is always inspiring to see such great projects being established in towns, providing essential industry development and employment.

A short diversion on the way home to the southern entrance of Parry’s Lagoon… however we didn’t get too far before realising it was probably the wrong track.  The northern entrance would be a much better option for next time.
