Cape Leveque Airstrip WA

Cape Leveque WA is a remote location on the tip of the Dampier Peninsula north of Broome. This rugged and pristine slice of the Kimberley is famous for its Aboriginal heritage which continues to thrive.  

Equally famous are the striking colours of the landscape where dramatic red-rock cliffs meet bone-white sand and clear turquoise water. 

The area is popular for swimming, snorkelling, boating and whale watching. The fishing is world class – throw in a line from the side of a boat to catch mackerel, tuna, cobia and sailfish. 

You can learn more about Aboriginal culture on bush-tucker, tag-along and mud crabbing tours. 

Accommodation at Cape Leveque ranges from camping and beach shacks to fully equipped safari tents with decking overlooking the sea.

Kooljaman at Cape Leveque

Kooljaman is best described as a unique off-the-grid wilderness camp located on Native Title land, and sustained by solar power and local bore water. Our low-impact accommodation has been specifically designed to capture the rugged character and beauty of Bardi Jawi country, and reflects the Aboriginal values of caring for land and country.

Surrounded by a diversity of natural wonders, the amazing wildlife, vast array of marine life and the stunning coastline makes this a truly unique place to experience.

The two surrounding Aboriginal Communities of Djarindjin and Ardyaloon (One Arm Point) jointly own Kooljaman, making it proudly 100% Indigenous Owned. The Communities have developed the camp in line with the community’s aspirations and their inherent knowledge of the land. 

Kooljaman at Cape Leveque has been established for 20 years and has won numerous state and national tourism awards in categories for Indigenous Tourism, Eco Tourism, Unique Accommodation and Cultural Tourism.
