After stopping at quarantine on the border (no fruit, vegies, honey etc can come into WA from NT) we arrived in Kununurra. A small town with a population of about 6,000, it is quite a nice area.
We went to the tourist information centre first and stocked up on brochures. There's quite a bit to do in the area. We also grabbed a list of caravan parks in town and finding accommodation proved a hard task. Most parks are booked out - filled with grey nomads!! We managed to find one park that said we could come in on an unpowered site and go onto a list to move to powered. We took up this option and ended up spending two night on unpowered.
We've spent some time walking around town and also watching sport in the nearby Hotel.
Monday we did a bus tour to Lake Argyle dam and then came back to Kununurra by boat along Lake Kununurra. The tour guide did a great job talking about the agriculture, ecology, dams, rivers, history of the area. We also got to see a few freshwater crocodiles and they threw in afternoon tea with pumpkin scones - yummy.
We are heading off to the Bungle Bungles Thursday. Will give you an update when we get back to Kununurra to resupply before we hit the Gibb River Road.
