About this place
Wiggingarra Butt Butt (Freshwater Cove) lies on the mainland adjacent to Montgomery Reef. The business is managed in partnership with the Damibmangari traditional owners, who have strong cultural connections to the Lalang-garram / Camden Sound Marine Park and Montgomery Islands. Fishing is undertaken within a 15km radius of Freshwater Cove, including occasional visits to Montgomery Reef. Kimberley cruise passengers often go ashore here to view and purchase Aboriginal artwork.
Plan when to visit. Consider travelling with a personal location beacon (PLB). In the event you need to be rescued it could save your life!
Crocs are common, crocs move around and crocs are deadly so Be Crocwise. Download the Crocodile safety and myth busting fact sheet.
Pay attention to all warning signs, however just because a sign isn’t there doesn’t mean crocodiles aren’t present. If you are unsure don't swim, canoe or use small boats in estuaries, tidal rivers or pools and contact the nearest Parks and Wildlife office.
