BOAB trees are ten a penny in our far north but not many are the size of this one.
Reputed to be at least 1500 years old this tree has a special place in the early history of Western Australia. It was here, back in the mid to late 1800’s, that Aboriginal offenders were imprisoned overnight whilst being transported to Derby. Since then it has been known state wide as the Prison Tree and has become a sacred place in Aboriginal lore.
There is a similar sized Boab in a truck bay about 100 kms east of here and that, too, was attracting a lot of shutterbugs when we pulled in for a picnic lunch.
