Our trip to the Lookouts rewarded us with great views of the Lake and the dam wall and the Ord River . However we were unable to drive down to the wall due to the high level of the Lake . Next stop was Spillway Creek for a cuppa and a good look at the water that is surging past the bridge there at over a million litres a second. It really was a sight . while looking around here we found a family fishing from the banks of a backwater there but they weren't catching anything.

On our way to the bridge both Mike and I had noted some tracks leading off to interesting spots on the left hand side of the road so on our way back we checked them out.
The first one led to a rock shelter with Aboriginal cave paintings which appeared to be in quite good condition.
