About the Lalang-garram marine parks: 

The wild and remote Kimberley coastline is one of the last remaining relatively unspoilt coastlines on earth. This coastline is also recognised as one of the world’s most ecologically diverse marine areas. The three Lalang-garram marine parks are a living cultural landscape and lie within the traditional country of the Dambimangari Native Title Holders.

The Lalang-garram marine parks provide protection to approximately 1.3 million hectares of remarkable Kimberley marine environment from the internationally recognised Garaangaddim (Horizontal Falls) to Iledda (the Walcott Inlet), Yowjab (Montgomery Reef), and the spectacular wilderness values of Malandoom (Prince Regent River).
