Located off the King River Road 35 km south of Wyndham, the access track leads to a popular tourist spot signed the Prison Boab Tree. As the name indicates it used to serve as an overnight lock up for prisoners en-route to Wyndham with a police escort. The tree has a circumference of 14.7 metres and is estimated to be between 2000 and 4000 years old. Worth a look.

This old Boab records a similar recent history - a century ago - to the Police Tree near Derby.

There is a toilet and picnic sheds and if you wish to have lunch there stay clear of the nearby creek, you will find the odd croc.
