Approximately 160 km south of Broome on the Great Northern Highway, a well signposted turn-off takes you down 23 km of well maintained, all weather dirt road to one of the Kimberley region's best kept secrets, Port Smith Lagoon and Caravan Park.
The park is known Australia wide for its friendly service and happy atmosphere. Listen to the songs of the large array of bird life and spot the resident mopokes or frill necked lizards amongst the shade trees.
Take the boat trip across the lagoon to fish, or just wander along the cliff edge for some great photo shots. Find out the hidden fishing spots or just make new friends.
Enjoy the sunset over the Lagoon or a dip in the pristine waters. Watch the dolphins and turtles at play, or marvel at the whales as the travel past on their journey south.
During peak season come along and enjoy our famous fish and chip evening for the best fish and chips in Port Smith and relax to the sound of local or visiting bands.
A truly great way to meet fellow travellers and swap a few yarns and travel tips.
All profits from these nights are donated to selected charities.
The area around Port Smith is rich in birdlife along with a great variety of wildflowers which can be difficult to find at times but well worth a good look to see how many varieties you can find.
The coastline in the area boasts everything from meandering tidal creeks which are just great to try and capture a delicious mudcrab or one of the many varieties of fish to beautiful white sandstone cliffs overlooking magnificent turquoise Roebuck bay.
Around July to late August you can watch giant Humpback whales on their annual migration and you may be lucky enough to see huge Manta Rays at play along the cliffs.
Most of the areas to visit while visiting Port Smith are native title areas and are patrolled by helpful community rangers. Please be aware you are being welcomed to the land as a visitor and respect local customs and regulations.
