Lake Argyle (sunset)August 5, 2017 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 30 °C
It's not often we think a 2 night stop is worthy of more than one "footprint" but the sunsets at Lake Argyle are truly something else! Wish we'd stayed longer just to see them a few more times!
Mid-afternoon we hopped in the car to check out the dam wall (amazing feat of engineering) and pretty picnic spot on the other side of it, alongside the Ord River. We then made the short trip back to Pannikin's Sunset Lookout point. The short drive off the main road is only about 1.2km but definitely requires 4x4. A Victorian family we'd met in Darwin had been at the pool the day before and recommended the spot and said it was really quiet so we were quite surprised to see a number of cars on the hill as we approached. We soon found out someone was having a wedding at the spot! Luckily it was all over just before the sun disappeared behind the hill so we could enjoy the amazing scenery too!Read more
