Adele Island, a tiny speck on a marine chart to the north of One Arm Point, sits right at the centre of the newly released Kimberley Commonwealth Marine Park, a vast marine area that links the Kimberley coast with the newly created Camden Sound Marine Park.
Squelching around near the Broome jetty in soft, velvety mud to mid calf, I noticed a featherstar waving delicate feathery arms with stripes in shades of milky coffee in a shallow, sandy pool. Broome is famous for its large tidal variations and the King tides over Easter brought super highs and super lows with a difference of up to 10m.
