Kununarra - more unseasonal weather!

We arrived in Kunnunarra via visiting the big boab. It was lovely when we arrived but soon the weather deteriorated (unseasonably of course!) to a wet and freezing 17 degrees. The locals were beside themselves and Target quickly became the site of a frenzied winter clothes buying melee.

The big boab, visited in blistering heat via dusty corrugated road, quite frankly it was too hot to really concentrate on what it was all about. I believe it was an important explorer who had made a base camp nearby.

The Kimberly was lovely country. We loved the boabs, the Kapok trees with their yellow flowers and the red soil.

We also loved these signs.

We ventured to Wyndam where five rivers meet the sea.
The views were amazing.

Sadly, the town had seen better days.



Just in case Nan and Pa are reading. All clear!

During our time in Kunanarra, we also drove out to see Lake Argyle.

The kids were blown away by its size.

And this little freshie who was sitting below a rock watching a famly with young children fishing. They beat a hasty retreat when it came out of the water to surprise them.
By little, I mean 2.5 to 3 metres long! (big for a freshie).
It stayed there for the tourists to take snaps.

Just perched above the town of Kununarra is this lovely little National Park.
We enjoyed a chilly visit.

The rock colours were amazing.

Some people describe them as mini bungle bungles.

Despite the weather we loved our time there.

  1. It's so stunning. Thanks for showing us your great adventures! Keep 'em coming please :)

  2. I just love your (now) expert commentary on crocodiles! The scenery is so very beautiful isn't it. 17 degrees would be great where I'm at...a positive heatwave! Stay safe :)

  3. Your pics and commentary are fabulous Deb. It looks like the wonderful time continues:) I have never been to any of these places, so it is just amazing to see pics of them (mind you, think I would have run a mile or two or three..if I came face to face with a croc!). Keep enjoying!! ~ xx
