Before reaching Wyndham we stopped at Parry's Lagoon and sat in the hide for a few hours. We were watching a flock of about 20 ducklings being lead around by some parents and trying to identify the huge array of different birds, when Bryce spotted a estuarine croc as it lifted it head to swallow a fish. We watched as it slowly moved towards the ducklings and then drop under the water out of sight. The ducks swam straight to it and with the camera ready, we saw the croc leap up in the middle of the flock. Ducks went in every direction and somehow the croc missed them all. Then if that wasn't exciting enough, whilst watching the croc unsuccessfully creep up on the ducks, a huge python thudded onto the mesh roof above, slid off and splashed us as it fell into the lagoon. It was quite a eventful morning.
Back on the road we reached Wyndham just before lunch, I think we were expecting Wyndham to be some amazing sea side town with huge rivers running through it! Obviously a bit naive as it was far from this, the sea must be still many km from the port so there is definitely no site of the ocean from the lookout. Nevertheless the views from five rivers lookout were spectacular, we could see 4 of the 5 giant rivers running into one gigantic river and the surrounding tidal flats, it is hard to comprehend the amount of water that must be flowing during the wet season. Port Wyndham was looking very tired and unloved, to put it politely, we didn't spend long there and Wyndham had some cool oversized sculptures that were fun. Overall a interesting place, but I don't think we would revisit.
