Local Wildlife

Gumbanan's unique and pristine location along the Dampier Peninsular is home to more than one natural phenomenon. The area is not only known for the strength of the rushing tides (rising and falling up to 12 metres with the waning of the moon) which pour in and out of King Sound via the Buccaneer Archipelago, it also shares an abundance of wildlife including unique and rare species which survive in this beautiful yet extreme environment.

While dolphins can be regularly seen in and out of the bay area, turtles and even Dugong can be sited. The fish trap is a home to many sea creatures and is always a must to explore as the tide goes out.

The bird life is also breath-taking at Gumbanan, home to the famous and rare Gouldian Finch and other unique species it is a must see for any bird watcher. Some types of birds to look out for are; Gouldian Finch, Chestnut Brested Munia, Double Barred Finch, Red Winged Parrot, Curlew Sandpiper, Kimberley Honeyeater, Sea Eagle, Brown Quail, Fuscous Honeyeater, Bower Bird, Coucoul Pheasant, and more..
