Information

Kooljaman resort is about 220 km north of Broome at Cape Leveque. To get there, you'll across a 88km 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 pressures, the road is not too taxing, but it is very rough in places so be warned.

Kooljaman is on Aboriginal land and is owned by 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. The highlight for many is 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), as well as Cygnet Bay Pearl Farm. Alternative accommodation and camping is now available from Divers Creek Campground provided by Cygnet Bay Pearl Farm.
