Location  12 km (7 mi) north of Broome, Western Australia

Goolarabooloo Millibinyarri is a small Aboriginal community, located 12 km north of Broome in the Kimberley Region of Western Australia, within the Shire of Broome.


Goolarabooloo Millibinyarri is located north of Broome along the coast, in a locality known as Coconut Wells.

Coconut Wells is a small rural living subdivision with about 30 lots. The area was originally established in the 1970s with thoughts of becoming a plantation area, however this did not eventuate due to a lack of available water.

Native title

The community is located within the Determined area of the Rubibi Community (WAD6006/1998, WAD223/2004) native title claim.


The community is managed through its incorporated body, Goolarabooloo / Millibinyarri Indigenous Corporation, incorporated under the Corporations (Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander) Act 2006 on 16 July 2009.
