Perth

We leave the 'Top End' flying from the heat of Broome to the relative cool of Perth.

A chance to have some time with relatives and then explore the area south of Perth which we had missed last year.

Flying out of Broome it is possible to see just how small this major centre really is.

For two and a half hours we fly south over deserted coastline and arid bush

Perth is lush and green and looks enormous compared to Broome

It takes around 11 days for the water to reach its destination.  Around 90 million litres of water are pumped every day

Originally the pumps were steam driven by these boilers
