Visit the Kununurra Museum Open Day & Evening on Thursday 25 May to see the ‘75 Years of Ord Irrigation’ exhibition.

In 1942 the first agricultural experiments got under way at the Carlton Reach. We are also commemorating 75 years since the forced landing of Wirraway A20-62 on the far north-east Kimberley coastal saltmarsh, just inside the WA-NT border.

This is a story of survival and rescue of two RAAF pilots by four Aboriginal stockmen of Carlton Hill Station and Charlie Pretlove, Manager of the Legune Station. The Story of the WA-NT border forms a permanent display with a history going back almost 100 years . The museum is a treasure trove of objects and stories with multiple HD screens showing over 15,000 images in our date sorted slideshows. May 25th is International “Geek Pride Day” - For the Museum Geek in you!

Take a tour back through history with excerpts, photos and artifacts from this important time.
