l'm planing a trip over to the west around August 2017. Just wondering if any interesting sites and places that should be worth a look at.

What are your interests? Capacities? What's your vehicle?

You could hardly pose a more vague question.

The brother and I like relaxing and checking out the land scape and a bit of bird watching. I drive a 2009 crusher ute with 100 lts water, 300 lts fuel under body. 2 inch lift kit, winch, fox wing awning and sides, fridge and freezer, diff locks front and back as well as most other gear for a good night feed and sleep.

Going by the predictions on this site you may well need a boat to get there in Aug next year.

Perhaps ask a better descriptive question this time next year as conditions and access to places can change week to week never mind year to year.

Gday Raymond,
Its ok I understand your query!
There are a heap of places between Broome and Cape Leveque worth visiting. Beagle Bay, Lombadina, One Arm Point(past Cape L). Plus all the smaller camp grounds like Chile Creek, Middle Lagoon and Cape Coulomb. The camp ground at Cape L is a good place to relax for a few days.
Cheers

I'll second that

Make sure you make a booking at Cape Leveque - Kooljaman Resort and do try their Pizza, Big Breakfast was OK but not that big :)

We stayed at Middle Lagoon and it was fantastic, we were having a quiet bevvy with another camper at Cape Leveque and he was going back to Chile Beach as he reckoned it was beautiful and was going to stay a couple more days.

A tour of the Cygnet Bay Pearl Farm is a must but if you are taking your wife make sure you have plenty of cash on you for the Pearls ;)

Ifg you have a good 4wd, heading to Derby and don't want to go back down the Cape Leveque Road ??? then there is a track heading East near Beagle Bay, follow that for about 52km then turn right to head back towards the Great Northern Highway. You will come across a swamp, there is a bypass track that we later discovered after going through the swamp :(

Enjoy it is a beautiful part of gods country

cheers

Hi Ray,

We enjoyed a very little camp called Gnylmarung.
About 18 sites but not well known.
It is on the same road in as Middle Lagoon. Middle Lagoon turns right - you just go straight ahead.
Not as crowded as Middle Lagoon - they have amenities, free firewood all cut up and ready, were doing fishing charters, free sat phone, and a great beach and you can launch a boat.
They have a website.

The only down sides are:-
1. DON'T stay in the cabins ( DON'T - they are just a tin leanto)
2. No little shop like Middle Lagoon ( if you need gear ) we carried enough so no problem.

We also enjoyed Cygnet Bay Pearl Farm - mmmmmm well at least one of us did.


Regards Neil

Thanks Niel P4.

Will check out the web site and seem it may be a place to do a little fishing off the beach.

Regards Ray.

We stayed at Bullies Camp. Isolated right on the beach. Primitive facilities though.

Keep a look out for Frank Davey's place- on the left hand side north of the flash resort. Just a sign on a tree but great camping right above the water- even has toilets nearby.
