One Day Cape Leveque Adventure
Experience the highlights of pristine Cape Leveque on this adventurous day trip into indigenous Bardi country. Learn about the Peninsula’s place in Australia’s history as the iconic red 4WD track cuts a path through distinctive pindan woodland. Get to know local indigenous communities, visit a remote aquaculture hatchery, snorkel in clear, tropical water and enjoy time on the remote and beautiful beaches this Cape is famous for.
The Dampier Peninsula is a delight for travellers seeking a real Kimberley experience that is culturally rewarding in a beautiful environment. As we journey up the Cape Leveque Road, travellers will learn all about the areas fascinating place in Australia’s history. Enjoy morning tea in the Beagle Bay Aboriginal Community, home to the Sacred Heart Church and its glimmering pearl shell altar.
We then travel north to the Cygnet Bay Pearl Farm. The only working pearl farm open to the public, Cygnet Bay offers an introduction to the history and cultivation of the world’s finest pearls during an in-depth Pearl Farm Tour.
In the One Arm Point Aboriginal Community we tour a local aquaculture hatchery perched right on the tip of One Arm Point and enjoy a picnic lunch overlooking the impressive Buccaneer Archipelago, witnessing the huge tidal flows of the Kimberley – the largest in the southern hemisphere!
Returning south we discover Cape Leveque (locally known as Kooljaman). Enjoy time to relax on the pristine beaches and spectacular coastline the cape is renowned for. We then reboard the vehicle for our journey back to Broome, arriving at approximately 7:00pm.
Those who have chosen the 4WD/Fly (1DCL1) option will be transferred to Kooljaman Airstrip to meet the pilot for the short flight to Broome, arriving at approximately 5:00pm.
The tour operates in a custom-built, 21 seat 4WD trucks with a PA system and built-in storage (no risky trailers!). These comfortable, strong remote area vehicles allow our small groups extra space (including standing room), are fully air-conditioned and fitted with adjustable air-vents, reclinable seats, map pockets and footrests. It is important than when booking a 4WD outback adventure in the Kimberley, you understand that the roads we travel on can be heavily corrugated. Rest assured, these are the conditions for which our 4WD trucks are designed.
