2-Day Cape Leveque and Kimberley Coast Camping from Broome
This two day 4WD adventure explores the highlights of the stunning Cape Leveque – meet local aboriginal communities and learn about their fascinating traditions, cruise through the Islands of the Giant Tides, enjoy the pristine beaches and camp in an exclusive safari camp.
Day 1: Beagle Bay, Cygnet Bay Pearl Farm & Buccaneer Archipelago (L,D)
Following hotel pickup in Broome, you'll travel up the red 4WD track and learn about the region's history from our guided commentary. First stop is the Beagle Bay Aboriginal Community, home of the Beagle Bay Church with its glimmering pearl shell altar, for morning tea.
By mid morning, you'll arrive at the remote Cygnet Bay Pearl Farm. In 1946, Dean Brown skippered a rickety wooden lugger into an unknown frontier to discover this hidden paradise: his descendants continue to operate what is now the oldest Pearl Farm in Australia. After a picnic lunch, enjoy an insight into this remote pearling industry on the farm tour and embark a cruise through the islands of the Giant Tides to experience the remarkable tidal flows of King Sound.
As dusk approaches, you'll reach your private Safari Camp, exclusive to your tour group and nestled on the beach overlooking the bay. In this stunning location, you can swim, explore the mangroves, and perhaps catch a fish for dinner before a warm Kimberley sunset.
Day 2 Kooljaman, Cape Leveque, One Arm Point & Broome (B,L)
Returning to civilization, you'll travel to the One Arm Point perched on the tip of the Dampier Peninsula to visit the Community’s aquaculture hatchery, complete with barramundi, pearl, and trochus shell. After a hatchery tour, you'll join Kevin, your local guide from the Ejai family, traditional owners of the Sunday island group, at the family's beach 'bali'.
Enjoy fresh damper cooked over the fire while Kevin shares the traditions, lifestyle, and culture of his family.
Then, you'll reach beautiful Kooljaman at Cape Leveque. You may like to head off on a snorkeling adventure (equipment provided), or take one of the lovely walks in the area. Alternatively you may prefer to enjoy the pristine beaches and rugged red coastline for which Cape Leveque is famous. Driving back through the dusk, keep an eye out for wildlife before arriving at your accommodation at approximately 6pm.
