The Dampier Peninsula is an extraordinary blend of stunning coastline and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander 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 and Torres Straight Islander 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, a local community perched on the tip of the Dampier Peninsula, and visit the Community’s aquaculture hatchery for barramundi, pearl and trochus shell.
