Looking for a Broome day trip adventure with a difference?

How about visiting Dampier Peninsula communities in Australia’s North West, filled with history and cultural experiences…tempted?

The round trip adventure begins Mondays, Wednesdays or Fridays in Broome travelling in our 16 seater 4WD bus or 8 seater Stretch Troopie. We collect you at 5-5.15amam from your Broome accommodation in Old Broome or 5.15-5.30am in Cable Beach, you’ll watch the sun rise as you travel with the Peninsula Postie (that’s right, you’ll be ride sharing with the Dampier Peninsula’s mail service) across 70kms of the North West’s famous Pindan red-dirt road.

We call into Cygnet Bay for breakfast at the cafe. You can pay the cafe direct. We leave you there for one hour approx. 8.30am to 9.30am , whilst the postie drops the mail to One Arm Point and returns to collect you for your onward journey. If you dont want breakfast, have your breakfast before you are picked up at your accommodation or bring some to eat on the way. Lunch can be purchased in Beagle Bay, however please keep in mind that they can often run out of food, so to be guaranteed lunch you would bring your own.

Call into Cape Leveque Resort and Kooljaman Resort, view the former mission settlements Lombadina and Beagle Bay and take a stroll through the Sacred Heart Church, famous for its Pearl Shell Altar. Finish off your adventure on your return to Broome around 2-3pm, with plenty of time for a swim at Cable Beach and of course, watching the famous sunset.

The Cape Leveque Mail Run is not for main stream tourists who want a running commentary, but rather, it is a quirky and a unique adventure for those who are seeking something different and an insight into the communities. Doug is happy to answers any questions……fire as many questions at him as you like and you will receive answers to the best of his ability and knowledge. The intention of the mail run is you get out of it, what you put in. Please note the communities and Australia Post dictate the run so times and stops may change without notice e.g sometimes the communities will close for the day and no mail or visitors are allowed.

The communities we visit include: Gambanan (only June to September and drop off or pick up only), Cygnet Bay , Cape Leveque (Kooljamin Resort), Lombadina, Djarindjin and Beagle Bay. Please note we do not visit One Arm Point unless you are being dropped there on a one way trip.

If you’d prefer a more independent itinerary, one way tickets are available. Heading out of Broome, the Postie can drop you off at one of the communities. Stop off for a few days at Kooljaman Resort / Camp Grounds and join a sunset tour. Or visit Cygnet Bay Pearl Farm and experience the Giant Tides and their Pearl Farm Tour.

Buy your ticket for your return and we will pick you up from your chosen community and drop you off back in Broome.

We operate every Monday, Wednesday and Friday excluding public holidays. So, with one way tickets you might head up to Cape Leveque on a Monday, and come back on Friday. Or you could come on the postie tour for the one day round trip and learn all about Cape Leveque and the local communities. Its all about suiting to your camping/holidaying needs!
