Looma Community

Postcode: 6728

Looma is an Aboriginal community about 120 km south-east of Derby adjacent the Fitzroy River. Looma has a population of about 400.

Looma is approximately two kilometres from New Looma which was established after splinter groups within the community had to move due to infighting. Consequently a new community was formed with new roads, housing and water supply installed. The old community remained as is.

The community has basketball courts and a football oval.Looma fields a team in the West Kimberley Football Association called the ‘Looma Eagles’.

Bush walking, some fishing and camping are the dominant pursuits for tourists visiting. Visitors are required to apply for a permit prior to entering the Community.
