Lake Argyle

Lake Argyle, classed as an inland sea, is Australia's largest artificial lake. It is located near Kununurra in the north of Western Australia close to the Northern Territory border. The dam, completed in 1972, was designed to irrigate Kimberley's farmland. Its maximum storage capacity correlates to 40 times the size of Sydney Harbour over an area of ​​1000 sq km. Its creation was a disaster for the local Indigenous Australian communities whose lands were left submerged. However, it has also led to the emergence of a new ecosystem. Today, tens of thousands of crocodiles inhabit the lake and its artificial islands banks. Whether by boat or by plane, nature lovers will certainly enjoy the beautiful landscape of Lake Argyle!
