  STS033-079-033 Napier Broome Bay, Western Australia, Australia November 1989
This part of the northern coast of Western Australia includes the northern extent of the Kimberley Plateau (darker, more uniform looking features). The plateau consists of a number of low mountains, mostly composed of sandstone rocks. Although the elevations above sea level are not high (some peaks reach 3000 feet --900 meters) the general terrain is dramatically rugged and dissected by deep gorges. The peninsulas that jut northward into the Indian Ocean form three distinct bays: west to east they are Admiralty Gulf; Vansittart Bay; and Napier Broome Bay.
