Lake Argyle

Lake Argyle is the largest man-made lake in the world, and a beautiful spot. Half the group went for a swim and some rock jumping, before we headed on a little further to find fresh water crocodiles, apparently harmless to humans, but with 25,000 in the lake there was markedly less enthusiasm for more swimming.

We enjoyed a rather beautiful sunset before heading back to camp to sit around a fire, slightly unnecessary in 32C weather but kept the bugs away. In general though there were far fewer bugs than I’d expected, lots of flies depending on the time of day but no mosquito bites, and no snakes or spiders. Just lots of birds, some wild cows, a few lizards, couple of frogs and a number of wallabies.
