Exmouth is a town on the tip of the North West Cape, and is 1,270 km north of Perth and 3,300 km south-west of Darwin. Many kms before reaching and after leaving Exmouth along the Learmonth Minilya Road, numerous termite nests can be seen adorning the otherwise bleak landscape. This image was taken near the Exmouth Communications Towers. The two mounds here are about 5 foot tall.

Mound-building termites or just mound builders are a group of termite species that live in mounds. This group of termites live in Africa, Australia and South America. The mounds sometimes have a diameter of 30 metres. Most of the mounds are found in well drained areas. Termite mounds usually out live the colonies themselves. If the inner tunnels of the nest are exposed it is usually dead, however, sometimes other colonies occupy a mound after the death of the original builders. (Sourced from Wikipedia)
