The intriguing and partly opened road of Cape Leveque takes the aspiring traveller on an adventure of epic proportions. Following the road about 200 kilometers away from Broome will take one to the beautiful “Ardi” or Dampier peninsula. The excursion offers many of the normal to do things albeit with lots of mind-boggling scenery around. Snorkeling, swimming, walking along the beautiful beaches or exploring some hidden nook and cranny comes with a generous bonus of the opportunity to mingle with and understand the unique culture and livelihood of the natives living in this area. The Sacred Heart Church embellished by its intricate altar made of pearl shells will fill the traveler with wonder while the interesting history will paint its own picture. Travelers are requested to abide by the various norms in the region while honoring the culture and the personal space of the inhabitants. For those who are travelling in groups and with families, even though it is quite a drive away, Cable Beach accommodation options offer a perfect haven such as the Oaks Cable Beach Sanctuary and many more. While travelling in the area of the Dampier Peninsular, a four wheel drive vehicle is often recommended owing to the condition of the rather irregular terrain.
Cygnet Bay Pearls is the oldest pearl farm in Australia that is still in business. The farm deserves a visit while the many crannies along the way offer a great insight into the rich heritage of the area. However, fuel and other various commodities will only be available during given times therefore, it is important that you have packed sufficiently to take on the adventure. Pets are not allowed in the area while there are also no places to buy any alcoholic beverages. If in need of any medical assistance contact the relevant authorities, whom you should have been notified of prior to setting off, as any such amenities in the Dampier peninsular are quite far and few.
