A stunning composition of ochre-coloured earth and aquamarine waters, the Dampier Peninsula is one of Australia’s most spectacular coastal environments. Spend two full days visiting local communities and gain an insight into Indigenous Bardi-Jawi lifestyle at One Arm Point. Tour a working aquaculture hatchery and see pearling in action at one of Australia’s oldest family-owned pearl farms – Cygnet Bay. Relax on the sands and take a boat cruise through the Islands of the Giant Tides. With so much included in two days, your exploration of a slice of Western Australia coastal paradise is a trip worth travelling for.

We’re in the process of figuring out how much CO2-e this trip generates. In the meantime, find out more about our climate commitments and carbon reduction target.

Why you'll love this trip
  • Explore the natural wonders and First Nations histories along Western Australia’s Dampier Peninsula on a guided 4WD adventure.
  • Visit a working pearl farm to learn of the long history of this trade, and experience some of the world’s most fierce tropical tides on an included cruise around the Buccaneer Archipelago.
  • Spend the night in a comfortable safari-style camp with included meals prepared for your small group after days exploring the red earth of the western Kimberley.

Is this trip right for you?
  • This trip is operated and run by our trusted partner, Kimberley Wild Expeditions. You will be travelling with a mixture of both Kimberley Wild Expeditions customers and Intrepid customers. Intrepid works closely with Kimberley Wild Expeditions to ensure that all of our customers enjoy their time away.
  • On some days of the trip, you’ll spend several hours driving through very sparse areas of Australia. Sit back and enjoy landscapes that you would miss in any other form of travel. Extra space can be tight, and conditions may feel a little cramped. Think of it as a great way to get to know your fellow travellers. The drive days can be long, but it’s as much about the journey as the destination, and half the fun is the camaraderie.
  • Accommodation on this tour is a permanent safari-style campsite with facilities.
  • Our leaders are the classic do-it-all Aussie – they know the best spots to watch the sunset, can drive you to your next destination, take you on a guided hike or even whip up dinner for the group on some trips. While they won’t always do all these jobs on every trip, be aware they will be juggling many things on your tour and may have less time to spend with you. They will always be working hard to ensure you and your group have a fantastic time exploring Australia.
  • You’ll be travelling through regions with very little mobile service or internet connection.
  • This tour itinerary does not visit the Kooljaman or Cape Leveque areas as they are closed for the foreseeable future.

Important notes

START & END TIME
This trip starts in Broome with an early pick-up at 7:00am on day 1 at our default pick-up location, unless you request an alternative pick-up location well ahead of departure. The trip finishes at around 5:00pm on the last day. We recommend you arrive a day prior to the trip's departure date and onward travel should not be booked until the following day.

SINGLE SUPPLEMENT
A Single Supplement is available to be booked on this trip, subject to availability. Please speak to your booking agent for more details.

OPERATOR
This trip is operated by our trusted partners Kimberley Wild Expeditions. It is essential that you call the Kimberley Wild office on 9193 7778, the day prior to departure to confirm pick up, and provide a mobile number for any late notifications.

MINIMUM NUMBERS
Please note this trip requires a minimum number of booked customers to guarantee the departure. Your Booking Agent will advise at time of booking if the departure has met minimum numbers. If minimum numbers are not met, you will be advised no later than 56 days out from departure (prior to full payment due). We recommend arranging flights and related travel services once your departure is guaranteed. In the event that your departure is cancelled due to minimum numbers not being met, a full refund will be provided of monies paid.

WEATHER
Departures are all subject to regional weather conditions and road closures – usually only a concern in Apr & Oct / Nov.

LUGGAGE
Space in a 4WD is limited so please keep luggage light – bring only essentials in a small soft bag, MAXIMUM 15kg. Suitcases are NOT suitable. Excess luggage must be left in Broome or sent to a forward destination.

PARTICIPATORY CAMPING
It is important that travellers participate in setting up camp each night, though the leader can assist where necessary. The leader also appreciates the assistance or one or two group members in preparing/clearing meals. It is essential that all our groups leave the camp they stay in as they found them for the next travellers - the Kimberley is a pristine wilderness and it is our responsibility to ensure it stays this way.

Very relaxed and chilled out couple of days without any rushing. Glamping at Cygnet pearl farm was 10/10. Do not book this if you're also doing a full day horizontal falls tour.

We had a fabulous Intrepid/Kimberly Wild trip - 2 days with the BEST tour guide, great truck, delicious food, excellent accommodation and gained a great understanding of the land and enjoyed the amazing scenery, beautiful coastline, boat trip a King Sound/high tides. We particularly enjoyed learning more about the Aboriginal history, culture, personal experiences and their ongoing challenges, but most importantly the significant positive impact our traditional people are continuing to have on the land and environment and the community as a whole.
