LILY CREEK

By JN_CHATELAIN_PHOTOGRAPHY
The landscape around Kununurra has been shaped by the diversion dam on the Ord River which was completed in 1963. The Ord valley was flooded upstream towards the Argyle Dam, creating Lake Kununurra and subsidiary wetlands like Lily Creek Lagoon.

The water is used to irrigate farms in the area and is also part of the supply of drinking water for the town.

The water and the land surrounding are important to the local Aboriginal people. There some Aboriginal Heritage Sites located in the area which are kept secret except to the
Miriwoong people.

The area is rich in wildlife so itís a great place to observe birds and go fishing if you donít mind crocodiles.

Great set, I thought at first they were just ripples in V3, but there is a very watchful eye there! Carole

Ah! that's why the water had a funny taste in Kununurra and I had to force myself drinking wine!

You can just see why this place is a great attraction to the wildlife. 3 great shots but my favourite has to be that croc in V3. Moira
