The first stop on the Broome–Cape Leveque road is the Aboriginal community of Beagle Bay, 125km from Broome. The highlight here is the Sacred Heart Church built by German missionaries in 1917, a beautiful building with an unusual altar decorated with mother-of-pearl – pay the $5 entry fee when announcing your arrival at the community office. After Beagle Bay the track to Cape Leveque gets narrower and sandier and after a further 20km you’ll reach the turn-off leading after 33km to Nature’s Hideaway at Middle Lagoon, a lovely white-sand cove with camping, good swimming and snorkelling. Backtracking to the main road, a further 48km takes you to the community of Lombadina, another ex-mission settlement where you’ll now find well-equipped accommodation, a range of water- and land-based tours and a beautiful wide bay. The road ends at spectacular Cape Leveque, 220km from Broome at the very tip of the peninsula.
