Lake Argyle was created by the damming of the Ord River and is the largest body of fresh water in Australia. Old mountain peaks emerging from the water’s surface are collectively known as Crocodile Ridge because of their resemblance to a crocodile basking in the sun. There are opportunities for fishing, birdwatching, camping, bushwalking, sailing, canoeing and lake cruises. With spectacular scenery, nearby Diversion Dam is an important source of water for local agriculture and attracts an abundance of wildlife. A variety of watersports and cruises are available.
