Day 19 - Tuesday 10/7/01
Start - Kununurra
Stop - Kununurra

Much needed rest day for both bodies and vehicles, although “rest” included 4 loads of washing, food shopping, oil and grease change plus picking up “the ST Cooper tyre” replaced from Coopers head office under warranty (see Gunbarrel section for details). We found Kununurra had changed little since we last came through in 1998. The Coles supermarket is now 24hrs, the local butcher has a good range of meats which he can cryovac for you and there are 2 vegie shops to choose from plus the local melon farm for cheap melons and other fresh local produce out on the Ivanhoe Road.

We decided that with so much domestic activity we had seen very little of Kununurra’s sights and had little chance for fishing so we planned to spend another day to “rest and enjoy”. A few things around town interested us – the dam wall was open to allow overflow from the diversion dam, which meant the Ivanhoe Crossing was flooded and impassable – the fishing from below the dam wall was apparently quite productive and Sandy, our photographer extraordinaire, was getting very excited about the sunsets.

David bought some bait from the Shell depot but found the turbulence was too strong as they had opened another dam door.
