Bobieding is a small Aboriginal community, located 120 km 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 Mr Phillip Cox, community elder.[1]

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]
