Dampier Peninsula Five Days

Day One

Head north of Broome in your four-wheel drive, following the partially unsealed Cape Leveque Road and learn about remote community life, staying at Mercedes Cove. Enjoy strolling along secluded beaches or if available, take a tour with an Indigenous guide to learn about the local culture, heritage, lifestyle and relationship with the land and sea.  

Day Two

Follow the Cape Leveque Road heading North to Kooljaman at Cape Leveque.  Along the way, call in to the Sacred Heart Church at Beagle Bay Aboriginal Community with its amazing pearl shell altar. At low tide near Mudunn, you can search for mud crabs in the mangroves with a local guide. Cook and sample what you catch before heading off to Kooljaman at Cape Leveque or Cygnet Bay Pearls  for your next two nights accommodation ranging from eco tents to a luxury 40ft catamaran. 

Day Three

If staying at Kooljaman consider a  glass bottom boat tour, an Indigenous tour or why not take a self guided walk along the Eastern and Western Beach, take a reef walk at low-tide or enjoy the interpretive boardwalk through the coastal vine thicket.  

At Cygnet Bay Pearls there are a range of land, sea and air tours. Tour this pioneering family's pearl farm,  cruise the Thousand Islands, learn about coral or be whisked away to your own private beach with a chef prepared hamper for two.

Take a scenic flight over the Buccaneer Archipelago or a cultural and scenic day trip to Sunday Island.

 

Day Four

Head south to Lombadina for your last night on the Dampier Peninsula. Choose from boat charters, ancient footprint, kayaking, mud crabbing, four-wheel drive tours, shore fishing, whale watching, bush walks or bird watching, not forgetting to visit the craft shop and enjoy fresh bread from the bakery.

Day Five

Before heading south back to Broome, spend the morning discovering the spectacular coastline and stunning beaches.
