Cruises from Vansittart Bay
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.
