Derby - located 2354 km north of Perth and 236 km from Broome, is a town without a clearly defined centre. On the outskirts of town (7 km south on the Derby Highway) is the Boab Prison Tree and Myall's Bore. The huge boab tree was used as a lockup for Aboriginal prisoners. It was the last stopover point for patrols returning to Derby. Capable of holding a number of prisoners it has an entrance which is about one metre wide and two metres high.
