Lake Argyle

On our way out of Kununurra we stopped at Lake Argyle.  Lake Argyle is one of the world's largest man made lakes.  It is part of the Ord River Irrigation Scheme.  The Ord River Dam was completed in 1971 and is the most efficient dam in Australia based on the relatively small size of the dam wall compared to the large amount of water stored.
