spectacular, unspoilt scenery | eco bush camping

Overlooking, clear turquoise oceans, sandy beaches and vibrant red pindan cliffs, it’s little surprise this beautiful stretch of Kimberley coastline is World Heritage Listed. Whale Song Campgrounds are set amongst lush Kimberley bush, and located on Pender Bay. This sheltered bay has long been a resting place and nursery for humpback whales on their migratory paths. Our relaxed bush camping facilities have now become a welcome resting place for travellers of the human variety, who consider it a must see destination while visiting the Dampier Peninsular. With only five sites available this means that there are minimum numbers of guests at any one time which allows visitors to immerse themselves in the location. 2019 will also see us launch our Kimberley Wild Gubinge Tours and Cellar Door so that we can share Australia’s Native Superfood with travellers.

Visit the home of Kakadu Plum on the Peninsula

Known as Gubinge, Madoorr or Madoorroo by the Bardi people of the West Kimberley Coast, often called the Kakadu Plum, the fruit is the highest natural source of Vitamin C on Planet Earth. In the plant kingdom it is known by the Latin name Terminalia Ferdinandiana.

Traditional use

Our people have valued Gubinge trees and fruit as a natural resource and friend to our people for thousands of years. Used as a fresh staple in the Wet Season, collected straight from the tree or dried and mixed with water as a drink in dry times.The bark and gum was also used for its medicinal values.
