The Dampier Peninsula is a delight for travellers seeking a real Kimberley experience that is culturally rewarding in a beautiful environment. As we journey north, travellers will learn about the area’s fascinating place in Australia’s history. Enjoy morning tea in the Beagle Bay Aboriginal Community, home to the Sacred Heart Church and its glimmering pearl shell altar. Completed in 1918, this ‘Mother of Pearl Church’ is inspired by German architecture and a team of Aboriginal women worked under the direction of a German priest to decorate the interior with mother of pearl, cowrie, voulte and olive snail shells to create a unique mosaic that features the totum symbols of the Nyul Nyul, Nimanborr and Bardi people as well as Christian symbols.  

We then travel on to the Cygnet Bay Pearl Farm. Established in 1946, this is the only working pearl farm open to the public, Cygnet Bay offers an introduction to the history and cultivation of the world’s finest pearls during an in-depth Pearl Farm Tour. Relax and enjoy a delightful lunch prepared by the chef at Cygnet Bay’s licensed restaurant, overlooking the turquoise waters of King Sound. After lunch, head to the One Arm Point Aboriginal Community. Enjoy a refreshing dip at Jologo Beach, spot dolphins and turtles from the Round Rock viewpoint and tour Ardyaloon Trochus Hatchery & Aquaculture Centre, perched right on the tip of One Arm Point overlooking the impressive Buccaneer Archipelago, witnessing the huge tidal flows of the Kimberley – the largest in the southern hemisphere!

We then reboard the vehicle for our journey back to Broome, arriving at approximately 7.30pm.

Those who have chosen the Drive/Fly (1DDP1) option will be transferred to a nearby airstrip to meet the pilot for the short flight to Broome, arriving at approximately 5.00pm.

*When available, an additional visit to the aboriginal community at Lombadina will be included; this is dependent on the discretion of the community patrons.
