Cape Leveque invites you on a spiritual journey to see some of the Kimberley’s most stunning coastal wilderness through the eyes of the Indigenous people who welcome you to their country. Venture a little further north by air and be rewarded with a bird’s eye view of the horizontal waterfalls in Talbot Bay.
Located on the tip of the Dampier Peninsular, the road to Cape Leveque is all part of the adventure, following the four wheel drive track or joining a guided tour for the three and a half hour drive north from Broome (sometimes closed during the green season – November to March). A quicker scenic route is available by air aboard a full or half day tour departing from Broome or Derby.
Against a striking backdrop of pindan cliffs, pristine white sands and clear turquoise waters, immerse yourself in one of the oldest surviving cultures in the world, joining the locals for an authentic Indigenous bush tucker tour, tag-along four wheel drive tour or even a mud crabbing experience.
While relaxing in the region’s remote wilderness camps you’ll be tempted by many more opportunities to enrich the mind. Hop aboard a scenic flight to take in the exclusive spectacle of the Horizontal Waterfalls at Talbot Bay – created by some of the largest tidal forces on the planet – and the 1,000 plus island paradise of the remote Buccaneer Archipelago.
Snorkel the reef, visit one of the world’s largest populations of humpback whales (June to October), join a bushwalking tour, or let a local fishing charter give you a taste of world-class game fishing – putting you within casting distance of mackerel, tuna, cobia and sailfish.
Your accommodation options range from camping to glamping, with basic camp sites and beach shacks at the budget end, to fully-equipped safari tents overlooking the sea.
If you’re travelling by road, stop at Beagle Bay to visit the Nyul Nyul people who’ve lived in harmony with this pristine environment for thousands of years. Step inside their Sacred Heart Church and view the alter they made entirely of mother of pearl shell.
