A knowledgeable guide provided good commentary as we travelled and at each stopping point. Cape Leveque is a beautiful spot which is not easily described using words. The lunch was very nice and it was quickly set out for us allowing good time for a swim. The "Kimberley massage" provided by the road surface did't detract from the trip although it did add to the length of the day.
Organisationally, this tour as just fine and everything ran very smoothly. Our driver/guide was very well-informed and helpful, and we enjoyed the morning tea and lunch we were given. We were most interested in the church at Beagle Bay (that was the main reason for us going on this tour) and it was interesting to contrast it with the one at Lombadina. We found out a lot more about the missions at Beagle Bay and Lombadina when we visited the Old Nunnery in Broome later. Cape Leveque itself is quite scenic, so we enjoyed that part of it. We weren't so interested in the fish farm or hatchery or whatever it was, but, then again, others might have been. All in all it was a well-run tour, and a good opportunity to get out into part of the Kimberley environment.
Cape Le Veveque is gorgeous. For the drive it would be nice to spend a couple of days up there instead of just the day tour. We did do the Optional return flight which is spectacular.
Our tour guide, Leisa, was very friendly and took great care of her passengers and very respectful of the areas she took us to. Our flight back to Broome with Jayden, our pilot, was the highlight of our day. The owners of the company - Leopold - were wonderful and took us back to our hotel when were landed. We would happily recommend flying back to Broome.
We really enjoyed our tour. The guide was very friendly and knowledgable about the culture and the history of the area. The bus was great and the flight back gave us a great view of the area. Er enjoyed the beach in the afternoon after a beautiful lunch. A lovely day. I would highly recommend it.
Road to Cape Leveque is incredibly rough, but if you want to see what Aboriginal living in a remote area is like, do this trip! Lots of contrasts. Kooljamon Resort is a lovely place to have luch and a swim. The flight back in 6 seater plane was definitely worthwhile, the best take off and landing ever, despite a dirt airstrip! Sad to have missed out on the last part of the tour to fly back to Broome.
The trip overall was good, and worth doing as otherwise it would be hard to cover 90 kms of unsealed road in an ordinary hire car. We could have had more time on the beach, especially West Beach.
