On the edge of Derby lies “The Dinner Tree” – a large boab tree right on the edge of a large flat.

This historic area was the midway point for drovers who took cattle from the Kimberley stations to the ships at the Derby wharf. They would stop at the trough near the Prison Boab Tree and the next stop would be this One Mile Dinner Camp. Here they stopped and ate until the ship berthed and then they would walk the cattle along the pastoral trail across the mud flats.

Note: These photographs (especially the wider shots) look much better when larger – so click any of the images below to see larger versions in an inline overlay slideshow gallery viewer.

The light and colour at sunset – even without any clouds in the sky for weeks on end – was beautiful. Rich bold colours giving way to soft lovely colours as the sun dropped. Spectacular stuff.
