King Tide at Chinatown

High tides used to regularly flood the Chinatown area of Broome in Western Australia. They are still a spectacular sight, especially at Streeter's Jetty once used by the old pearl luggers. There weren't as many mangroves along that part of Roebuck Bay then as a result.

The famous outdoor cinema Sun Pictures experienced tidal flooding until banks were constructed in 1974.
