Five Rivers & a Huge Croc in Wyndham

posted in: Western Australia

Wyndham is the northernmost town in Western Australia.  It’s about 100km north of Kununurra.  After we visited Emma Gorge we made the drive up to Wyndham to have a look at the Five Rivers Lookout.  It’s a place where five rivers empty into one before heading out to sea.

We had a look for all the rivers and gazed around at the view a bit.  Honestly the kids could not have cared less.  It was hot and windy up at the lookout and they weren’t all that impressed.  Still it was a unique spot and we thought it would be worth seeing.  Where else can you see the mouths of five rivers from one lookout?  I imagine sunset here would be quite the view.  Driving through town was interesting also as it was a bit…unkempt.

We could see remnants of the iron ore port facilities, I’m not sure if any of it is at all operational now. Five Rivers & A Huge Croc in Wyndham | How Many More Minutes? These old barges tell the story of the days when the port was in full swing.  LadyBug (6) was wondering if that was a swimming pool down there!

One more thing we had to see in Wyndham, the giant crocodile.  If I remember right it is 20m long. Five Rivers & A Huge Croc in Wyndham | How Many More Minutes?
