Cape Leveque and Kooljaman...
...and other holiday resorts on the Dampier Peninsula

Cape Leveque in Western Australia: a remote peninsula in the far north of the Kimberley, where the traditional owners of the land operate an amazing eco resort in the most stunning location you ever visited.

A luxury resort for shoestring budget travellers, bush camp for luxury travellers, and some of the most beautiful and most deserted beaches of the world...

Intrigued? Then prepare for a dusty drive...

Cape Leveque lies at the end of what used to be one of the worst roads in the Kimberley, on the very tip of the Dampier Peninsula north of Broome, in one of the remotest corners of the world.

The road is in the process of being fully sealed, but at this stage there are still more than enough corrugations left. If it's been a while since it's last been graded then it doesn't matter how well you pack your car, it will be thoroughly rearranged by the time you arrive.

Yes, it can be a rough drive, but you will forget about it the moment you arrive. This place at the far end of the Kimberley is worth it. (Anyway, you could fly if you like. But we'll get to all that...)
