Norwest Australia 1967

Travel back in time to 1967 when MMA aircraft graced our skies, Dampier was a new port in the northwest, the Diversion Dam for the Ord River Irrigation Project was recently completed, cotton growing was in its infancy, tourists could still visit the town of Wittenoom, and visit Darwin before the tragedy of Cyclone Tracy. These images are scans from Slides taken by my Father during an organised tour of the area over 40 years ago.
