    We plan to be heading out from Darwin early April (weather permitting) and are scheduling 2 days in Broome to drop off family and restock etc.  I read from one members blog that it’s possible to hire a mooring in Gantheame Bay (rather rely on the pick), but I’ve had no luck contacting that member.

    Kimberly Port Authority referred me to another company, Broome Mooring Hire and Services, but their number has been turned off over the past week so I’m not sure if this is going to work.

    Can anyone advise or point me in the right direction, its only for a couple of days but a mooring is preferable option if we can get it for our boat (12.1 metre Beneteau)

     

    regards

      Thanks. We arrived safely back in Perth two weeks ago. After a magic time in the Kimberly. Unfortunately we had no success from several options including the person above. In the end we resupplied quickly and made some repairs and headed to a bay further down the coast at eco beach resort.

      This website, it’s information and the community made a significant contribution to the enjoyment we had throughout the Kimberly. Swift ,bay was the family highlight. Although king George river was eye candy all the way

    Hi Kita,
    Good to read you had a safe and successful trip. Thanks for the radio contact – was good to chat. We are 25nm from Darwin and back in range for regular comms. We called Antony in Broome based on your entry in this forum and had success. Antony (call me Zorba – he is Greek) had a selection of moorings available – could not have been more helpful. Broome is a very challenging place to reprovision so you did well to complete it in a couple of days…
    Regards,
    Janie and Kevin
