The Kimberley remains an agricultural land and cattle is roaming freely in these wide expanse of land.

In these harsh dry conditions, water is of prime importance. Not far from the “Prison Tree” (see previous up-load) stands a old windmill which was erected around 1910. Prior to the windmill there was a well, dug in the early 1890s.

A certain Joe Griffen built a concrete trough which could handle 500 bullocks at one time. This was later extended to a length of 120 metres!

The water from the bore has a rich mineral content and was reputed to have therapeutic properties. A bath house once stood near the trough so the drovers could wash after weeks spent riding their cattle in the dust.

Nearby, there is also Frosty's Pool, a small pool which used for bathing by troops stationed in the area during WWII.

Water is such a precious commodity that we take for granted.
A informative set of excellent images, Jean-Noel.
