Prince Frederick Harbour lies at the southern end of the York Sound located in the Kimberley region of Western Australia opening into the Indian Ocean.

The Hunter and the Roe Rivers both discharge directly into the Harbour.[1]

The area was surveyed in 1820 by Philip Parker King aboard the Mermaid.[2][3]

Boongaree Island, also known as Boogarre Island, is found on the north western part of the harbor and is one of a number of islands lying in the harbour [4]
