Wyndham, the northernmost town in Western Australia, is considered the gateway to the Kimberleys.

There were lots of great options today. Unfortunately, some of them clashed, so Sandra and I went our separate ways.

Sandra chose the included flight over the Bungle Bungle Range and the huge Argyle diamond mine. The 6-passenger fixed-wing plane allowed great views for all on board, she said.

I chose a full day tour exploring the Ord River and Lake Argyle on a purpose-built high-speed boat. We stopped for a great lunch at a specially prepared picnic spot and were later transferred to a coach that took us to the Durack Homestead.

The Duracks were pioneers of the area. Their original homestead was flooded as part of the Ord River irrigation development. Fortunately, the homestead was removed stone by stone and re-assembled on higher ground.

A shuttle bus operated throughout the day between the ship and the Wyndham township.

In the evening a special seafood extravaganza was served on the aft deck, followed by dancing under the stars with music from Orion’s resident duo.
