Marine Life and Fishing

The Jetty provides an uninterrupted viewing point for spotting turtles, stingrays, snub fin dolphins, an array of coastal birds and a wide variety of fish species.

The Jetty is a great place for some Kimberley fishing with the odd barramundi being caught amongst more common species such as trevally.

The Jetty is here for all users, so please be respectful of others and remember to bring a bucket or eski for managing your catch, fill a bucket to wash off any accidental spills of fish blood or bait and always discard of rubbish appropriately.

Fishing from the lower landing structure or on the southern side of the jetty is prohibited to accommodate vessel access.

There are no fish cleaning or filleting stations at the jetty as the Shire wants to avoid attracting additional marine predators to the area. Please take your catch home and make sure you dispose of all waste appropriately.
