Myall's bore and cattle trough, Derby

The Kimberley region has many large stations. On the outskirts of Derby
there is a 120 metre long trough. It was built in the early 1900's and
provided water for up to a thousand head of cattle at a time.

The windmill in the distance now pumps the water into the trough.

It is believed to be one of the longest troughs in the southern hemisphere
and provided a resting place for cattle before being shipped out of the
Derby port.
