Lake Argyle and the Ord River
5 – 14 days paddling expedition
In Canadian canoes, journey through the billion-year-old landscape, across the enormous freshwater expanse that is Lake Argyle. Visit beaches and islands brimming with wildlife, be inspired by the colours, tranquillity and isolation, camping under vast star-filled sky’s like nowhere else in Australia.
Once over the dam wall, the expedition continues along the lush and fertile water way of the Ord River, with abundant bird life and significant breeding and migrating populations.
Learn about the hydro-electric power and water irrigation schemes, the diamond mine and hear stories about the changes and impact from local and cultural perspectives.
This remote part of Australia provides a landscape and a backdrop for a total immersive expedition that is unique to this region and unlike anywhere else in Australia. This is TRUE WILDERNESS.
