King Sound, Western Australia
King Sound extends from the estuary of the Fitzroy River, which when in flood is thought to be the largest river in Australia.
King Sound has the greatest tidal range in Australia and one of the greatest in the world, with high tides reaching up to 12 metres.
Buccaneer Archipelago is made up of around 1,000 small islands and is one of the most remote and isolated parts of northwest Australia.
With each tide, the Buccaneer Archipelago experiences a unique natural phenomenon known as Horizontal Waterfalls.
The town of Derby is located on the mud flats of King Sound, and is one of the oldest and most remote towns in northwest Australia’s Kimberley region.
Derby is home to the Boab Prison Tree, which is believed to be about 1,500 years old and was used to hold prisoners in the town’s early days.
