    Awesome part of the world. Spending some time at Lake Argyle and getting a boat from there along the Ord River to Kununurra is a great day.

    Yep pretty much 12 months ago to the day I did just this trip! And yes a big fat salty was sunbaking just below the dam wall.

    My cousins hubby is a ranger up that way and I'm sure he mentioned that there is a section of the Ord there that has the highest concentration of salties anywhere in Aus.

    When I was last at Lake Argyle we were having lunch in the caravan park there and a guy came over and offered us a huge barra that was more than they needed. We put it in the esky and cooked it under the stars that night on a bush camping stop on the way to Katherine.

    Looks like a large freshie from the brow ridges and narrow snout. Have seen some big freshies (3m+) in the bigger systems where they overlap with salties.

    Yes, somewhere along the South Coast.

    This is the view looking south from very close by.

    All correct for the view looking south, but where is the view looking north with the rock pool taken from?

    I'm not seeing lots of pics. Is it me, or have some of the links been broken? Who's using Photobucket?

    In the meantime, I think we all know what's in the background, but where's the pic taken from?

    I 'spose this means you can see the pic, I can't without clicking on the link. Is that what you guys did, or is it embedded for you?

    Too easy, must make it a bit more obscure next time. Whilst you are sorting out who's next, knock yourselves out on this one.

    Bingo. Three Mile Dam.

    Was taken on Australia Day two years ago after a massive thunderstorm came through. One bolt of lightning struck only a few hundred metres away.

    Once the storm passed, it was very calm and serene.

    Jeebus, what a pluck!! My first thoughts were one of the lakes on Fraser Island, but the rounded crowns of snow gums, grassy fringes & topography dropping away in background led me south.

    Nicer place for A-Day than smashing bottles & carving up sand dunes on a hot beach with two thousand fat tattoo'ed bogans in WA.
