Information

Kooljaman resort about 220 km north of Broome across a 88 km section of what many people regard as one of the roughest sandy/dirt roads in Australia. Providing you take your time and lower your tyre pressure, the road is not too taxing, but it is very rough in places.

Kooljaman is on Aboriginal land and is owned my the local Aboriginal community, though mostly staffed by white folk. Well appointed cabins and safari tents are available along with many camp sites. Some of the camp sites have private grass huts on them, with water and a table / chairs provided. These are pleasant sites, but are very sandy and are often buffeted by winds.
Staying at Kooljaman is not cheap, but it is worth the cost and effort for a couple of days. May 2013 prices are $38/dble unpowered and $43 for power. Minimum 2 night stay. A bit of TLC is needed in the camp kitchen as the 4 burner stove is broken as is the hot water tap and there are signs of wear and tear in the amenities. For the price they ask they can lift their game.
The highlight for us was a low tide walk right around the Cape. The rock formations are simply fabulous.
Other places to visit while in the area include Beagle Bay (for the church), Middle Lagoon (a lovely camp spot with crystal clear water for swimming and snorkelling), One Arm Point (Aboriginal Community) and Lombardina (Aboriginal Community with bakery and Trocus Shell jewellery making)
