Day 1: Broome / Dampier Peninsula / Cygnet Bay

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. After a picnic lunch we head for the remote Cygnet Bay Pearl Farm. In 1946 Dean Brown skippered a rickety wooden lugger into an unknown frontier to discover this hidden paradise: his descendants continue to operate what is now the oldest Pearl Farm in Australia. Later 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: Dampier Peninsula / Cape Leveque / Broome

This morning, return to the pearl farm to gain an insight into this remote pearling industry on the Farm Tour, concluding with an in-depth pearl grading and appreciation session that will leave you feeling like a pearl expert! 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 5pm, where your trip ends on arrival.
