Bobieding is a small Aboriginal community, located 120 km (75 mi) north of Broome in the Kimberley region of Western Australia, within the Shire of Broome.


The Bobieding Community is named after a local fresh spring water hole called Bobbies Spring. Bobieding consists of members of an extended family and was founded by Phillip Cox, community elder.[1]

Native title[edit]

The community is located within the registered area of the Bindunbur (WAD359/2013) native title.[2]


The community is managed through its incorporated body, Bobieding Aboriginal Corporation, incorporated under the Aboriginal Councils and Associations Act 1976 on 26 August 1988.[3]

Town planning[edit]

Bobieding Layout Plan No.1 has been prepared in accordance with State Planning Strategy 3.2 Aboriginal Settlements. Layout Plan No.1 was endorsed by the community on 1 August 2003, and by the Western Australian Planning Commission on 24 February 2004.[1]
