  Port Map

Raft Point is a Kimberley icon - a large rock formation found close to the mouth of Doubtful Bay, which is a large bay located on the Kimberley coast. Sale River feeds into the bay.

  • Raft Point, and its 188 m high bluff, juts out into Doubtful Bay's entrance off Kimberley, north western Australia. It was named so as the local Aboriginals were seen using rafts. Here tourists can climb up to the saddle of rock which forms an outdoor Aboriginal art gallery. This gallery is very spectacular - the art is an account of mythical Wandjina tribe on the "Great Fish Chase." There are images of Wandjina spirits with distinctive haloes and crocodiles, fish, snakes and dugong.
  • With exciting views over neighbouring Steep Island, the hike to the unique Aboriginal art gallery found on the cave walls of Raft Point is a delight for every photographer.
  • The Aboriginal Rock Art portrays the mythical Wandjina tribe but is also the ideal spot for fishing and crabbing.
  • Things to see and do at Raft Point include sightseeing, fishing, bird watching, mud crabbing and aboriginal rock art. The cruise season extends from January through December.
