Day 1                                 Beagle Bay, Pearl Farm, Giant Tides                                                  Cygnet Bay or Kooljaman(L)

Departing Broome after breakfast, we journey up the spectacular Dampier Peninsula, also known as ‘Dampier Land’. Largely Aboriginal-owned land, the Dampier is a delight for travellers seeking a Kimberley experience that is culturally rewarding in a beautiful environment. Travelling up the red ‘pindan’ 4WD track, we hear about the peninsula’s fascinating place in Australia’s history from our guided commentary. Our first stop is the Beagle Bay Aboriginal Community, home of the Beagle Bay Church and its glimmering pearl shell altar, where we enjoy morning tea. Arriving at beautiful Cygnet Bay we join a fascinating Pearl Farm Tour where we learn about the world’s largest and most beautiful pearls that have been farmed in these pristine waters for generations by the family owned business. After enjoying a delicious lunch we embark on what will undoubtedly be a highlight of your Kimberley adventure – a thrilling Boat Tour through the pituresque Bucannear Archipelago. Over 2 hours we feel the rush as we take an exhilarating ride over the world’s largest tropical tides and our skipper shares their local knowledge of the natural beauty of the Kimberley coastline.

This morning we will join an entertaining and informative ½ Day 4WD tagalong tour with our local Indigenous guide. We spend some time with Bundy and his family where we will learn about the region’s history and hear the Dreamtime stories of the Bardi People. Learn the ancient art of spear making using local materials. Afterward, try your hand at spearing a fish. Maybe even catch lunch. Alternatively we follow Brian down to the banks of Hunter’s Creek. Along the way learn some of the fascinating history of the region and hear some of the stories of the colourful characters who started white settlement on the Peninsula. Taste seasonal bush fruit and hear the ancient stories of a people who once walked this timeless landscape. Down at the creek the fun really starts. Learn traditional fishing and crabbing methods. The tour concludes under a shady tree, where you cook up your catch – Bardi style on an open fire.  This afternoon there will be the opportunity to swim, snorkel & beach comb or just enjoy the pristine surroundings.

Our journey back along the Cape Leveque Road brings us to the laid back community of Lombadina Community and the ocean has been pivotal to their lives for thousands of years and evidence of their heritage can be found in the traditional artworks and pearl shell designs that are exhibited in their small museum.
