Buccaneer Archipelago

The Buccaneer Archipelago is a collection of islands located off the coast of Western Australia, near Derby in the Kimberley area. Bardi, located around 54 kilometers from the western extremity of the island group, is the closest populated place. The Mayala Marine Park, which will cover some of the Buccaneer group’s islands, is scheduled to open in 2020. This will be distinct from the Malayalam Marine Park, which will encompass the other islands in the group, and will be one of four marine parks that comprise the Lalang-gaddam Marine Park.
