This beach between James Price Point and Quandong Point is near the site of the proposed LNG processing hub on the Kimberley’s lower Dampier Peninsula, in an area rich in marine life, with one of the most significant dinosaur trackways in the world and a view of the world’s largest population of migrating humpback whales.  Broome local, Louise Middleton, who with late partner Paul Foulkes brought the dinosaur prints to national attention says “This site is recognised as having one of the most significant concentrations of preserved dinosaur tracks in the world…What makes it special is not only the number of track, but that there are so many different species of dinosaur converging on the one spot.”  In 2011 the site received National Heritage listing.
