Historical Story

DC 3 aircraft, USAAC C-53, was forced to land on the saltpan here in February 1942, having veered off course flying from Perth to Broome to assist with the evacuation of Dutch citizens from Java. All 4 crew members were evacuated by Flying Boat.


From sandy beach (survey marker) with short walk over dune. Take care – feral cattle frequent.
