Day 1 - Broome – Beagle Bay/Cygnet Bay/Buccaneer Archipelago
Depart Broome in the early morning, travelling up the red 4WD track and learning about the region's fascinating history with a guided commentary. The Dampier Peninsula is an extraordinary blend of stunning coastline and First Nations cultures. Your first stop is morning tea at the Beagle Bay Community – home of the Beagle Bay Church and its glimmering pearl shell altar. By mid-morning, arrive at Ardyaloon, or One Arm Point, which is home of the Bardi-Jawi people – a local community living on the tip of the Dampier Peninsula. Visit the community’s aquaculture hatchery for barramundi, pearl and trochus shell, and also meet local First Nations people from One Arm Point who will tell you about their history and life on the peninsula. After lunch, spend time at Cygnet Bay Pearl Farm to enjoy a pearl appreciation tour and then embark on an extraordinary cruise through the Islands of the Giant Tides. This phenomenon is part of some of the world’s strongest tropical tides, creating standing waves and if you’re lucky, a waterfall in the ocean!
Day 2 - Kooljaman/Cape Leveque – Broome
This morning, take a tour of Australia’s oldest pearl farm. Learn about this fascinating history from local guides descended from the very first pearlers. From here, you'll soon reach Kooljaman at Cape Leveque, where you may like to swim on the Eastern Beach, take one of the lovely walks over the Cape itself or choose to wander along the Western Beach. This is where the famed red sandstone cliffs tower above the white sand providing some of the best images of this area. Driving back to Broome in the afternoon, keep an eye out for local wildlife. Arrive back in town at approximately 6 pm, where your trip ends on arrival.
