Bigge Island is the second largest of the islands that comprise the Bonaparte Archipelago, off the coast of the Kimberley region of Western Australia. The island is composed of weathered sandstones that form a rugged and barren landscape, but it is criss-crossed by many deep grooves and fissures, forming valleys, which support the island's vegetation. Being uninhabited and free of feral creatures, it is a safe habitat for several vulnerable mammal species, including the small Monjon rock wallabies, the Ilangnalya, and the Northern Quoll.

The island is famous as a site for some amazing rock art, including "first-contact" Wandjina aboriginal art spread over many cave sites. The figures are distinctive for what appear to be haloes around the head of each figure. Images of sailing ships and figures smoking pipes apparently representing seafaring European visitors in the 19th century are also found. Visitors can enjoy the beaches, explore coves, and even go rock fishing. Geologically, the island is composed of weathered sandstones forming a rugged terrain.

The highest point on the island is Savage Hill on the south coast opposite Scott Strait at 143 metres, and the northernmost point is Cape Chateaurenaud. Islands surrounding Bigge Island include Prudhoe Island, Purrungku Island, Capstan Island and the Maret Islands. The traditional owners of the area are the Uunguu peoples of the Wunambal language group whose name for the island is Wuyurru. Indigenous Australian rock art exists on the cliffs and cave walls around Wary Bay. The paintings include examples of first contact art and Wandjina figures. The rock art was created by the Wunambal people.
