Dampierland, a peninsula worth a visit …

More photographs from my long weekend trip up the Dampier Peninsula, where red dirt and corrugations prevail, dense woodland and pretty flowers.

The towns of Beagle Bay, Lombadina/Djarindjin and One Arm Point are all near the Northern bits of the Peninsula. Many other small communities exist, along with the Cygnet Bay Pearl Farm, where accommodation was superb. Click to enlarge:
