Ord River

Last year I was fortunate enough to visit the Kimberley. It was my first time in the area, and I certainly wasn’t let down. After many years of people telling me to get up here, I finally did. As it was for work, I wasn’t able to get out and take many photos. I will however be back there next wet season to capture the fantastic landscape, with the monsoonal thunderstorms.

The Ord River is about 320kms long with the headwaters located below the 983-metre Mount Wells and initially flows east and around the edge of Purnululu National Park before heading North through Lake Argyle then passing west of Kununurra and discharging into theCambridge Gulf, which is at the southern extremity of the Joseph Bonaparte Gulf, Timor Sea. The river has 35 tributaries of which the five longest are Bow River, Nicholson River, Dunham River, Panton River and Negri Rivers.
The lower reaches of the river support an important wetland area known as the Ord River Floodplain, a protected area which contains numerous mangrove forests, lagoons, creeks, flats and extensive floodplains.
