Prince Frederick Harbour is situated at the southern end of York Sound (Kimberley region, Western Australia) which opens into the Indian Ocean. Both Hunter and Roe Rivers discharge straight into the Harbour.

In 1820 the area was surveyed by Philip Parker King (1791-1856) aboard the Mermaid. On the north-western part of the harbor lies Boongaree Island, also popular as Boogarre Island, and one of a number of isles located in the harbour.

Prince Frederick Harbour is among the most picturesque large inlets of the coast of Kimberley. Hunter River and the bay are lined with soaring red cliffs, mangroves and green rainforest. The cliffs found at the river mouth are about 200 m (656 ft) high and Mt.Anderson rises to an impressive 480 m (1574 ft) to the north.

Prince Frederick Harbour is home to Naturalist's Island, located on harbour's northern side. The proper name of the island is "Wunumpurramarra". The main beach here is nearly 300 m (984 ft) long and a large number of shells is found there. Many of the shells are home to hermit crabs, taken possession of the marine snail shells. Travellers must remember to watch out for crocodiles.
