Kimberley Mud Maps

“Mud Maps” – A map drawn on the ground with a stick, or any other roughly drawn map.

These are jpg images that can be printed on A4 paper, 24 sheets in the set. They show most of the Kimberly river entries based on work completed by the catamaran Topaz with 1 M draft, with added notes from Wings with Nan and Rick.

We used some of these in our journey through the Kimberley and found them invaluable.
BUT IT MUST BE NOTED that monsoonal rains in the Top End can alter rivers and their entries, so take these MUD MAPS as advisory only. Ultimately you are responsible for the safety of your ship and crew. These are dangerous waters no matter how many gadgets are on board or how many miles sailed.

There are FOUR LARGE files containing 6 mud maps each – – –

  2. Good morning
    My yacht Josida, white Huon pine motor sailer, was sharing slip time with you at Kettering Tassie about 12 months ago.
    Presently in Port Douglas waiting to go further north across Kimberley poss. Perth and back to Tas. for the summer.
    Your mud maps should come in handy thanks.

    Hi David ~ We do indeed remember our time in Kettering. Delighted to hear you’ll cruise the Kimberley where we were since leaving you. Please keep in mind the caveat that Top End river entries can and do change. Those mudmaps outline lots of attractions, and some of the dangers, but drop us a line if we can help any further.
