Following an unforgettable morning tea, courtesy of Elaine and Frank Argaet who are Tom Price residents and kindly offered to be our guides for the day. They lead us along the private road that connects Tom Price to Millstream-Chichester National Park. What met us when we finally reached Millstream was a lush wetland oasis, springing from an underground aquifer and fringed with date palms and paperbarks. The water, which is fed from the Fortescue River through porous dolomite rock, is crystal clear and luminous, shimmering shades of turquoise and vivid green.
