Woke in Lake Argyle, made breakfast, ate breakfast, packed truck
Visit to Lake Argyle (huge) and Dam with Hydro power station
Visit to Durack Homestead - was moved from old position in what is now the Argyle Dam
Walk in Hidden Valley just outside of Kununurra - like a mini Bungle Bungle - beautiful
Lunch at River side in Kununurra - park had trees planted by famous visitors, saw a crocodile at the edge
Drive to Turkey Creek, then turn off to go to the Bungle Bungles. Collected firewood (before entering the National park) and stored it on top of the truck
2 hour drive in the dark over 55kms to the campsite in the Bungle Bungles. Crossed countless creeks, some of them in deep culverts,all of them verrrry bumpppy, especially in the back seat!!
Arrived and set up camp - the camp had drop toilets and no showers - even though another camp site had cold bush showers - but we wouldn't use them shhhhhhh
we had a great Chicken Thai curry for dinner at 10:30pm, sitting around our camp fire - a magic end to a magic day
