Port of Wyndham

Wyndham is a tiny town in the Kimberley region of Australia, located on its western coast at the end of the Great Northern Highway. Wyndham is the epitome of an "outback town" and an excellent shore excursion option for active cruisers hoping to get a taste of the authentic outback lifestyle.

There's a small history museum in town, but most visitors will want to see and experience Wyndham's many natural attractions like Parry Creek Road, which offers stunning views, King George Falls and gorges like The Grotto where visitors can take a dip in a pristine swimming hole. Those who want a glimpse of Australia's legendary crocodiles should visit Parry Lagoons Nature Reserve, but for the more cautious traveler, a stop for a photo of "Big Croc," the giant crocodile statue that marks the entrance to Wyndham, should suffice.
