Welcome to part two of our photo posts, going through the highlights of our 5 weeks in the Kimberley. If you missed part one, you can find it here – Broome, and the trip up.
After a couple of days in Broome, we brimmed the fuel tanks and headed north, to Cape Leveque. We stayed at Middle Lagoon and Kooljaman, and fell in love with this amazing coastline. It’s certainly a place I’d recommend you visit! After Cape Leveque, we continued on to the Gibb River road. I’ve posted those photos here – Gibb River Road part 1.
The start of Cape Leveque road. Letting the tyres down a bit
A short detour to Quandong Point
A friendly lizard that I rescued from under our tent
The view from our camp site at Middle Lagoon
An awesome place to spend a few days
Parked at the ridge. You can camp right where our 4WD is!
The view from the other way
Lots of little creatures to keep you entertained
One of many beautiful sunsets
Feeding the fish; none of them wanted to be caught!
Even Sarah’s touch wasn’t enough to catch anything worth mentioning!
We were told the Dolphins often turn up around sunset
But we weren’t expecting flying fish
These were big fish too; perhaps mullet?
The best way to end a day; watching the sun dip away over a perfect beach you have to yourselves!
There’s nothing like it
Snorkelling in the warm water
Stacks of bait fish
Without a wetsuit the water was still lovely
A stingray with a huge tail
We saw plenty of these lizards, and loved watching them
Exploring Middle Lagoon
The tides make some pretty sand formations
Middle Lagoon was a lot of fun. I’ve written a post covering it in more detail, which you can read at Middle Lagoon, Cape Leveque.

The biggest insect I’ve ever seen

Great food, and a view to die for
The 4WD tag-a-long tour with Brian Lee was one of the highlights of our 5 weeks in the Kimberley. He’s a hilarious bloke, with a heap of good stories. You can find out more information about the tours he runs here – Brian Lee 4WD tagalong tours.
Not a bad way to end the day

Nothing beats a good walk along the beaches
Towering red cliffs, beautiful beaches and warm water. Could you ask for more?
Loving the crab life

An amazing infinity pool

Look at those eyes!
