In the early ‘60s the Ord River in the north of Australia was dammed to create an irrigation area. During my recent tour of the Kimberleys, I took a three hour trip from below the dam wall of Lake Argyle down to the outskirts of Kununurra. This was no lazy-Sunday-meander. There were two speeds: hang-onto-yer-hat-fast & stop.
Over the millennia, as the Ord cut through the red rock of the Carr-Boyd Ranges, towering cliffs were left to overhang the river. On our whizz-bang scoot down the river we carved out a massive wash. This wash played merry hell with the previously immaculate reflections.
