Cape Leveque Mail Run

Dampier Peninsula

Have you ever wanted to go on an adventure with a difference? Well how about visiting the Dampier Peninsula Communities filled with history and cultural experiences. Tempted? The adventure begins ex Broome travelling in our 16 seater or 8 seater 4WD Bus departing at 5am. Watch the sunrise as we travel across 70kms of unmade red pindan road. Let us know if you’ll be wanting to partake in breakfast at Gambanan Camp Ground, a beautiful coastal camp at One Arm Point Community where the locals conduct a cultural tour and also provide billy tea, damper, fruit and muffins. Cost $20 per person or $10 for kids under 12. Cash to driver or you can pay on credit card on booking.

We call into Cape Leveque Beach and Kooljaman Resort, view the former Mission Settlements Lombadina and Beagle Bay and take a stroll through Sacred Heart Church famous for its Pearl Shell Altar. Finish off your adventure by going back to Broome with plenty of time for a swim at Cable Beach and of course, watching the famous sunset.

Learn about the these communities in a small group on the tourist run day trip or stop off for a few days at Kooljaman Resort/ Camp Grounds and join them on a sunset tour or Cygnet Bay Pearl Farm and take a tour on their Giant Tides Boat or their Pearl Farm Tours or camp for few days at Gambanan Camp Ground at One Arm Point Community and we can collect you on our return.

If you would like a lift to/from Beagle Bay – Lombadina – Cape Leveque – Kooljaman – Cygnet Bay – One Arm Point, we depart Broome: Monday – Wednesday – Friday. We can transfer you up to the Dampier Peninsula any Monday, Wednesday or Friday and you can stay a few days or a week, whereby we can transfer you back to Broome.

We can take you up on Monday and bring you back on Friday or  just come on the tourist run for the day and learn all the local area. Its all about suiting to you camping/holidaying needs!

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.

Where do we pick you up from?

We can collect you from the Visitors Centre or where you are staying/live, whether it be at a caravan park or a resort in Broome and drop offs are the same.

What time do we arrive at each destination?

The tour departs Broome at 5am, so all travellers need to be at the pick up point just prior to 5am Old Broome and 5.15am Cable Beach Area.

Message from Doug The Postie:

“Gidday Doug the Postie here, details of an indicative Postie Run. Come and join me on the Cape Leveque Mail Run; I enjoy sharing stories of the Dampier Peninsula and its colourful people, history and show you some interesting sights at the same time:

Leaving home ( Old Broome ) 5am. I can pick you up from Visitors Centre, where you live or your resort accommodation or caravan park. If I have locals on board going north, I try to drop them on the way up, at any one of the stops below and drop off some of the mail at the same time. If I have no local drop offs, then I head straight to One Arm Point, the furthest point I go to Gambanan Camp Ground at One Arm Point Community, where they conduct a Cultural Tour along with billy tea, damper, fresh fruit and muffins. I also pick people up and take them to other towns on the way or to Broome on the return trip. Other than that the standard run is as follows and a guideline only as road conditions vary and number of parcels can impact on timing”.
