Embark on a rare opportunity to explore the Dampier Peninsula
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 or set out snorkelling at stunning Cape Leveque 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.
Explore the natural wonders and First Nations histories along Western Australia’s Dampier Peninsula – all the way to Kooljaman at Cape Leveque – 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.
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.
