The IBRA regions, with Dampierland in red

Dampierland is an interim Australian bioregion in Western Australia.[1][2] The region is also a distinct physiographic section of the larger Nullagine Platform province, which in turn is part of the larger West Australian Shield division.

The bioregion is located in the West Kimberley area and incorporates the country that is adjacent to Broome. Its characteristic vegetation is pindan woodland.
