Wyndham, found in The Kimberleys region, is the most northerly town of Western Australia.
It is made up of two areas: the original site of Wyndham Port and Wyndham East (Three Mile), the shopping area and residential area.
Until 1985 the meatworks was the town's largest industry, but now Wyndham is a service centre for the surrounding pastoral industries, mining, tourism and Aboriginal communities nearby.
Wyndham Port handles live cattle transport to Asia.
