1. History

The traditional owners of the areas around the gulf are the Wenamba peoples to the west and the Kambure peoples to the east.

Nicolas Baudin charted Cape Bougainville in 1803 and Cassini Island and was most likely the first European to visit the Gulf.

The coastline around the Gulf was explored by Philip Parker King aboard the Mermaid in 1819 as part of his survey of the area. King named the Gulf along with Port Warrender and Vansittart Bay.
