A town called Carnarvon

A town famous for its mile-long jetty, where husband fished every night
...with considerable success...
...in a land where ants build nests with coin-slot entrance
Lots of birdwatching opportunities - here, Black-winged Stilts
Where trees lean to tell you which way the wind blows...
Where there are some lovely old buildings...
 But where the town centre was mostly draped in building-site adornments
....like this. Why would they do this in tourist school holiday season?
Delightful only homes built for the sub-tropical heat and rains...
...a town where the Gascoyne River meets the sea
...and the falcons are everywhere, even in the centre of town
...a town famous for its bananas

A town worth taking pictures of. Not sure I would want to walk a mile to go fishing though.
