Swift Bay, in the Kimberley region of Western Australia, is an inlet to the fractured coastline, 12 kilometres west of the Mitchell River inlet. The flat rocky shoreline, with little vegetation, does have a number of sandy beaches, and deep to the SW of the bay mangroves line the shoreline. In the waters of the bay are of course salt-water crocodiles you’ll see from your Zodiak. Access to this region is by explorer vessel, sea plane charter, or 4WD. The three nearest beaches to Swift Bay are Ditji Beach, Yelcher Beach and Injin Beach. The sandstone bedrock has been undermined by erosion along parts of the shoreline presenting rather deep caves.

Your tour guide with local knowledge will point you to paintings on the water edge in Swift Bay Cave – Bradshaw rock art of human figures ornamented with accessories such as bags, tassels and headdresses – that have a contentious origin and dating. Some archaeologists argue they are of Asiatic origin. Wandjina paintings, a rock art of a very different style, are also endemic to this area. There are an estimated 100,000 rock art sites in the Kimberley region, most of which are still undocumented. The red ochre rock landscape, sparse vegetation, birdlife and seascapes are a photographer’s dream. The Kimberley is a stunning region that attracts increasingly land, air and sea explorers.

Interestingly, West Australian police found a giant SOS message made out of white rocks above the waterline of Swift Bay. An international enquiry resulted in a person in London who knew the source of the SOS. In 2013 two men had come to shore from their yacht in an inflatable dingy. A 3.5m saltwater crocodile destroyed the dingy and bailed up the men for seven days. A passing motor yacht came to the bay and rescued them. The lesson: Always carry an Emergency Position Indicating Radio Beacon or satellite phone.
