Dampier Peninsula is situated along the north east coast of Western Australia within the famous Kimberley. Around half of the Peninsula is covered by Aboriginal land, and so you should check with the Tourist Information Centre in Broome about the areas where you may not be permitted. However, there are several places where you can stay.
Travelling north across the Dampier Peninsula from Broome is Willie Creek where you can visit and tour around the Willie Creek Pearl Farm. Continuing north along the peninsula you will pass the Coulomb Point Nature Reserve which protects the bilby and the areas vegetation. The next two areas that you pass are the Beagle Bay Aboriginal Community and the Lombadina Aboriginal Community, both with pretty churches in the centre of town. There are also mud-crabbing and fishing trips available from Lombadina, which are great fun.
Continuing north you will reach Cape Leveque which is home to the Cape Leveque Lighthouse. There are some fabulous beaches beneath the cliffs and the views are fantastic. It is possible to stay here at Kooljaman, which offers camping, and units within the small resort.
