Dampier Peninsula and Cape Leveque
The breathtakingly beautiful Dampier Peninsula has a length of more than two-hundred kilometres and is only accessible through Cape Leveque road. Natural coastal splendour doesn’t get much better than it does over here.

Indigenous Experiences

There are many captivating colonies of indigenous Australians present throughout this region. One can learn a great deal about their culture as well as the history of the peninsula, which includes the Sacred Heart Church, built by the indigenous locals and Phallatine monks in 1917.

There are many choices of places to stay available at the Dampier Peninsula. If you’re feeling really adventurous there are camping sites and bush-shelters, but if you’re looking for something more comfortable there’s nearby Cable Beach accommodation to choose from with options like Oaks Cable Beach Sanctuary.

Getting There
Making your way to the Dampier Peninsula is an adventurous task, and if you’re going to take the unsealed Camp Leveque road, you’re going to need a 4X4. Sometimes the road can be closed due to flooding so be sure to check the road conditions beforehand. Although you can get fuel along the way, getting other facilities can be quite tricky.
