Explore Cape Leveque, the Dampier Peninsula and the Islands of the Giant Tides

A stunning composition of ochre-coloured earth and aquamarine waters, the Dampier Peninsula is one of the most spectacular coastal environments in Australia and a great place to encounter the Kimberley's indigenous culture. Visit historical local communities and gain an insight into indigenous Bardi-Jawi lifestyle at One Arm Point. Tour a working aquaculture hatchery and see pearling in action at one of Australia’s oldest family-owned pearl farms – Cygnet Bay. Relax on the sands or set out snorkelling at stunning Cape Leveque. Take a boat cruise through the islands of the giant tides and then spend a night in a private Coastal Safari camp on the Buccaneer Archipelago.

Why we love this trip

  • You can't visit Broome without visiting the Cape, two days around the wonderful North with an experienced Guide and a host to prepare your meals

  • This is the Original level and sleep in a permanent tent with linen and furnishings

  • We include the Islands of the Giant Tides cruise in our tour price

  • It's not all vehicle travel, we access our evening campsite by boat which adds to the uniqueness of this destination!

Is this trip right for you?

  • The roads to the Cape can be a little rough, so be prepared to bounce around your seat on the drive there and back.

  • We camp, but it's comfortable. Part of the experience is being out in the wilderness so be prepared to embrace it.

Itinerary

The Dampier Peninsula is an extraordinary blend of stunning coastline and indigenous culture. Travelling up the red 4WD track, learn about the region's fascinating history by guided commentary. Your first stop is for morning tea at the Beagle Bay Aboriginal Community, home of the Beagle Bay Church and its glimmering pearl shell altar. By mid-morning, arrive at One Arm Point (also known as Ardyaloon) home of the Bardi-Jawi people, an indigenous community perched on the tip of the Dampier Peninsula, and visit the Community’s aquaculture hatchery for barramundi, pearl and trochus shell. We’ll also visit Kevin and Donna, traditional owners from One Arm Point who will tell us about their history and life on the peninsula as they make us a traditional sand cooked damper to enjoy with our picnic lunch.

After lunch arrive at Cygnet Bay Pearl Farm to enjoy a pearl appreciation tour and then embark on an extraordinary cruise through the Islands of the Giant Tides. In the evening, you'll reach the remote private safari camp, exclusive to our travellers and nestled on the beach overlooking the bay. In this stunning location, you can swim, explore the mangroves or go for a walk in the dunes to find some old pearlers graves: truly a privileged experience.
