My husband and I had the most incredible and relaxing three days in Cape Leveque in June. We stayed at Kooljaman Wilderness Camp. During the days we spent our time exploring the local area, but as dusk approached it was time for wine and cheese on the beach, taking in the most spectacular sunsets I’ve ever seen!
A Tagalong 4WD tour with the charismatic Brian Lee was another massive highlight. As one of the areas Traditional Owners Brian shares his immense cultural knowledge and the history of the Bardi people in his own unique way. We spent the day swimming, fishing and exploring some of the world’s most pristine beaches and estuaries. From the children, to the more mature in our group, everyone thoroughly enjoyed the day. Brian’s tour is a must-do!
Many people just take a day trip from Broome to the Cape but I would say invest the extra time and money to spend a few days in the area. If you don’t have a 4WD, hire one (as we did) to make the 3-hour journey from Broome. The road is not sealed all the way and it does get a bit rough here and there, but it’s all part of the experience. If you are self-catering, I would also recommend hiring a camp fridge if you don’t have one in tow (well worth the minimal investment for a few days). And remember pack plenty of sunscreen and insect repellent, and Kooljaman doesn’t sell alcohol so you must BYO.
One last thing to note, the staff were fabulous! My hubby lost his sunnies on the last day. We let the front desk know before we left. We didn’t expect to ever see them again, but lo and behold, the very next week, they showed up in the mail!!
