field trip to Kununurra …


Spent all day driving Monday, 1070kms from Broome to Kununurra, arriving 9.30pm. Three hours from Halls Creek to Kununurra in the dark were spent dodging cattle on the side of the road, and road trains carting Iron ore to Wyndham, every 15 minutes.

Met up with a botanist and the local rangers, went out onsite this morning to inspect the flora and to arrange demonstrations on seed collecting. This a huge addition of the next stage of the Ord River irrigation Scheme which extends to the Northern Territory border.

Photos to add inĀ  later posts.
