Experience the highlights of pristine Cape Leveque on this adventurous day trip into indigenous Bardi country. Get to know local indigenous communities and enjoy an afternoon on the remote and beautiful beaches this Cape is famous for. There are a number of options to choose on this trip so you can essentially create your own Cape Leveque Adventure!
Spend time exploring the beaches of Kooljaman at Cape Leveque, discover the art of pearling on a Cygnet Bay Pearl Farm Tour or embark on a Kimberley Coastal experience with the afternoon Giant Tides Cruise.
Departing Broome at approximately 7.00am, we journey up the spectacular Dampier Peninsula, also known as ‘Dampier Land’. Largely Aboriginal-owned land, the Dampier is a delight for travellers seeking a Kimberley experience that is culturally rewarding in a beautiful environment. Travelling up the red 4WD track, learn about the peninsula’s fascinating place in Australia’s history from our guided commentary.
Our first stop is the Beagle Bay Aboriginal Community, home of the Beagle Bay Church and its glimmering pearl shell altar, for morning tea. We then continue to the laid-back Lombadina Aboriginal Community before reaching One Arm Point Community for lunch. This is the perfect place on the mainland to view the spectacular Buccaneer Archipelago and witness the huge tidal flows of the Kimberley. Don’t miss the Community’s aquaculture hatchery, complete with reef fish and trochus shell.
Following lunch our day continues to Cygnet Bay Pearl Farm, where you will enjoy a Pearl Appreciation Tour, providing you with the opportunity to learn more about the pearls.
The tour group will then split up and take part in their selected option:
Kooljaman at Cape Leveque
On nearby Cape Leveque (locally known as Kooljaman) we enjoy time to relax on the pristine beaches and spectacular coastline the cape is renowned for.
Cygnet Bay Giant Tides Tour
Board a high speed vessel for a truly remarkable experience on the Kimberley Coast. As we cruise through the Sunday Island group of the Buccaneer Archipelago the enormous power of the tide is on display in the form of whirlpools and standing waves. Your experienced skipper provides fascinating insights into this extreme tropical environment and how this not only affects the people of the Kimberley Coast but also how it powers the Australian pearling industry.
*Note that the Giant Tides tour is tide dependent; on neap tides, we will instead take the Kimberley Island Explorer Cruise.
Regardless of what option you have chosen, we regroup at around 4pm. Those who have chosen 4WD/4WD then reboard the vehicle for the journey back into Broome, arriving at approximately 7.00pm. Those who have chosen the 4WD/Fly option meet the pilot for the short flight to Broome, arriving at approximately 5pm.
