Jun 19, 2014 - Gnylmarung community

Well this app can't find gnylmarung on a map so I have marked cape leveque, which is the closest spot it recognises. Gnylmarung is not on hema maps, wiki camps or any other map, even the road sign where you turn on to cape leveque road, EXCEPT the Kimberley map Clare gave me before I left. Yay Clare! The community has only been open to visitors for 2 years and there are only 6 campsites so I was pretty lucky to find out about it at all ( the guy in the bait shop told me!!! He goes there). They may expand to a maximum of 10 sites in the...

Stringers Go West

May 28, 2013 - Cape Leveque

BREAKING NEWS: WE CAUGHT EDIBLE FISH!!! After telling fellow travellers we are heading to Broome every single one says 'make sure you go to Cape Leveque'. We were looking forward to finally getting up there after hearing this so many times along our travels. No caravans up there so we underwent the epic task of swapping from caravaners to tent campers. Massive job, imagine preparing to go camping for 4/5 nights from your house, then think of me trying to get out what we need when everything is shoved in tiny storage compartments. We have...

Jun 24, 2012 - Dampier Peninsula

We drove to Cape Leveque on a a red dirt road. Dad hated the drive. The road was sandy and bumpy and it took three hours. Our hut was opposite the beach. The water was warm but there were lots of rocks. There is a big croc at Hunters creek. The signs said not to go there. We collected shells when the tide went out really early every morning. We ate at the restaurant and had a campfire every night. I loved the campfires because we had marshmallows and toasted them. We drove to other places and had a drink and cake at Cygnet Bay. We played I...

Oct 7, 2011 - Day 32 & 33 Quondong Point

We are back from 2 days of beach camping, and this is the first opportunity we have had to update the journal. After leaving the beautiful Cape Leveque, we travelled only about 150km south to do some free camping on the beach. Quondong point is just the next one around from Prices Point, where the protest against Woodside's gas hub is taking place. We made a brief stop at Beagle Bay to see the church with the alter made from shells. Mick and I took turns going in, and when I went in India showed me how daddy had just taught her how to cross...

Oct 5, 2011 - Day 31 Cape Leveque

Wow, what an absolutely stunning place to be! Mick headed off at daybreak to try and catch some fish for dinner. He returned with news of a snagged line and cut feet. I got some meat out of the freezer! We drove down onto the beach and spent the morning in heaven. Only the pictures can explain, but I can't upload them at the moment, so you will just have to imagine paradise.  After getting too much sand in her swimmers, India wanted knickers and a dress. When I did my best to create her a dress out of mine, she said she was going back to...

Oct 4, 2011 - Day 30 Cape Leveque

After saying goodbye to Bec, Paul, Emma and Adam (and their kids), we were on our way out of Broome.  Cape Leveque is 200km north of Broome, 100km of which is unsealed, red, sandy and at times extremely bumpy road! We stopped a short time into the drive so that Mick could talk to the people at the Blockade who are protesting against Woodside's Proposed Gas Refinery. They have been there for 120 days, and are apparently making progress. I spent the rest of the dirt road trying to provide suspension for my bouncing belly. Paddy of course...

Jun 21, 2011 - Cape Leveque

Take 2, Chris unplugged the lap top so as i was just about finished the lap top died and i could have killed him!!! After 90km of the roughest dirt road we have were driven on and after becoming airborne 3 times, causing Chris to get car sick( I was feeling the same but i was in the front,)we made it to Cape Leveque. Beautiful beaches, crystal clear water, sand in 2 colours white and red just like the dirt but it was from the sandstone rocks that lined the beaches. Not much else to do but enjoy the views and relax and do nothing, which...

This morning we went out to Cygnet Bay at Bily's invitation. They were harvesting the pearls, so there was lots to see - it's a very delicate operation.

And with finished both Cyggie Bay coffee and cake for breakfast. We went into OAP and saw Maureen, and her son MooChoo recognised me.
