From Parry Creek it is an easy short drive to the historic port of Wyndham. Wyndham was established as a port to transport cattle to the southern regions of WA. Later a meat works was established there where, among other things, “Bully Beef” and Corned Beef were manufactured and sent to troops in WW2. This closed in the mid 1980’s.
An excellent museum tells an interesting and easy to follow, pictorial history of the town. Definitely worth a visit. The 5 Rivers lookout is also popular with tourists, where the King, Forrest, Durack, Ord and Penticost rivers flow into the Chamberland Gorge before entering the Timor sea. Quite spectacular. Although coping with the enormous challenges of isolation and forever changing government policy bring, Wyndham is a very interesting and worthwhile place to visit.
