Remote natural beauty at Cape LevequeWA, Australia

On the spectacular coastline of Cape Leveque on Western Australia’s Dampier Peninsula the red rock of the desert drops down to white sand and the water is as clear as glass. Cape Leveque is at the northernmost tip of the Dampier Peninsula in the Kimberley region of WA and is 240 kilometres north of Broome.

While Cape Leveque is remote, you can swim, snorkel or sunbathe on the pristine beach, go fishing for barramundi, mackerel, tuna, cobia and sailfish, or meet up with the local Bardi community to find out about bush tucker and traditional ways of life. They also run the wilderness camp, Kooljaman, where you'll find safari tents, log cabins, camping palm frond beach shelters, a restaurant, cultural and boat tours. You can also tag-along and try your had at mud crabbing!

The trip to Cape Leveque from Broome usually takes around three and a half hours in a four wheel drive on an unsealed road which is sometimes closed during the wet season. Or for the more adventurous ones with deeper pockets can enjoy a scenic flight over the area for a bird's eye view.

July to October is whale season, with humpbacks cavorting just offshore on their southward journey.


Entry is free to Cape Leveque.
