Off to Cape Leveque

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.

If you want all the information needed to travel the Kimberley including where to stay, what to see, park passes required, costs and where to get fuel, check out the ultimate Kimberley guide.

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.
