Any early traveller's in the Kimberley at the moment,if you want to see a REAL big tide head down to the Derby jetty on Monday 9/4/2012.There will be a 12meter full tide at 1540 in the afternoon.For a comparison between high and low,the low tide of 1.95meters is at 1037 in the morning.Now THAT"S a tide!

2005 we were on the wharf for a 10 plus meter tide. Had before and after photos and did a video of the incoming rush together with some great shots of the 'popeyes' coming in on the tide. A moment to remember but would love to see a 12 meter hit.

Pretty much the same here in Broome.

10 metres of movement between high and low.

I always thought Derby had 11m of movement during King Tides.

By the way mate, were are the cherabun hiding?

Might head out tomorrow for some.

Hi kimberlerlybloke, I remember as a kid in 69 we used to jump off the jetty and swim like crazy to the landing and do it again. I lived in Derby 66 to 69 in the house behind the Superior Shoe Store just opposite Rustys Supermarket.
