Cape Leveque road is now sealed!

High clearance, 4x4 vehicles are still needed if you plan to access many of the locations, as the access roads into some locations are unsealed.

Whether you hire a 4x4, put your own to the test or go on a guided tour, a trip up the Dampier Peninsula or Broome's fantastic northern beaches such as James Price Point is an unforgettable experience.

The turnoff to Cape Leveque road is located approximately 20 kilometres from Broome, on the Broome Road.

The newly sealed Broome-Cape Leveque Road has improved access through the Dampier Peninsula to Aboriginal communities, pastoral stations, pearling industries and tourist destinations. High clearance, 4x4 vehicles are still needed if you plan to access many of the locations, as the access roads into locations off the road are unsealed. Read this information from the Road Safety Commission to stay safe in the Dampier Peninsula.

Did you know?

Over 30 per cent of all Australia’s islands are in the West Kimberley Coast. A dense chain runs from the tip of the Dampier Peninsula, starting with the Buccaneer Archipelago which is locally known as the Thousand Island Archipelago. The area has huge tidal ranges up to 12 metres. The Horizontal Falls (Aboriginal name Garaanngaddim) is probably the most iconic location in Talbot Bay, located in the region.

The newly created Lalang-garram/Horizontal Falls Marine Park is located north of Broome and Derby and south of the Lalang-garram/Camden Sound Marine Park. The park covers approximately 350,000 hectares from Talbot Bay in the west to Walcott Inlet and Glenelg River in the east. (Source: DPIRD)
