Parry Lagoons Nature Reserve is 20km south of Wyndham and is a picturesque area with vast grasslands, lots of boab trees, billabongs and distant views of the Coburn Range. We camped at the Parry Creek Resort and visited Marlgu Billabong which is a bird sactuary with many birds visiting and living around the billabong. This is serious crocodile country but we did not see any salties or freshies.
Wyndham is a one horse town with a 20m statue of a crocodile welcoming you as you drive into town. The lookout north of the town is worth a visit with vast views over the area, including the town, the harbour, the Cambridge Gulf and the Coburn Ranges. At the harbour there are relics of the old Meatworks which was a massive abattoir that operated in the 1950s and 1960s.
