Vansittart Bay lies 530km WSW of Darwin, on the Kimberley coast of Western Australia, facing the Indian Ocean. A small stream, low rock platforms, and the sparse Truscott-Mungalalu Plateau face the bay. This is a protected large bay with numerous small islands and secluded coves that offer plenty of fishing. It is best known for its excellent rock art, regarded by many as possibly the oldest known to man. The style is known as Gwion Gwion or Bradshaw Aboriginal art. The older of two primary art forms found in the Kimberley region, it is known for its symmetrical, mystical and graceful figures adorned with tassels, delicate jewellery and elaborate headdresses.

Three kilometres inland is the commercial Mungalalu Truscott Airbase, under the traditional ownership of the Wunambal Gaambera people. The airstrip is heritage listed due to its significance during World War II and the many remaining war relics. It was the point on the Australian mainland closest to Java, where Japanese forces were concentrated. Today it serves as a staging base for workers on the offshore oil and gas fields in the Timor Sea. Workers are flown in to Truscott, then ferried to the gas fields by helicopters. The Australian Customs and Border Protection Service also use the airbase for their aerial surveillance patrols in the area.

A famous historical site of a WWII DC3 aircraft lying forlornly in the scrub on the eastern shore of the bay makes for an interesting excursion. You’ll see many beautiful birds, including the White-lined Honeyeater. A 13km trip by Zodiac SW to Jar Island will offer an enjoyable, relatively easy walk past some fascinating rock formations to an open air art site. If you are willing to scramble over large boulders and crawl under rock overhangs, the reward is a stunning gallery of this ancient, mystical art.
