Established in 1886, the old port of Wyndham was once a vital link with the outside world when the only communication was by coastal steamer. Now with a population of less than 850 this old frontier town is a far cry from when it boasted 6 thriving hotels and was the centre of commerce for the East Kimberly region, a role that has now moved south to the town of Kununurra.
At the Northern most end of the Great Northern Highway Wyndham is at the edge of the Cambridge Gulf and travellers are advised to stay well back from the tidal mudflats as this is real salt water crocodile country and Big “Salties” are often seen near the town.
There are many historical sites in and around this old town and from the five rivers lookout above the town you can see the King, Pentecost, Durack, Forrest and Ord Rivers as they flow into the Gulf.
