One Arm Point Airport

One Arm Point is located close to Cape Leveque on the Dampier Peninsula, a remote area north of Broome. It is a special place offering many treats for the adventurous traveller, with spectacular unspoiled coastline, tranquil community settings and sleepy holiday retreats. You can swim in the sparkling waters, go snorkelling, fishing or simply relax and enjoy the wide open stretches of white sandy beaches.

For those prepared to look further this is also an opportunity to share in the lifestyle of the Bardi Aboriginal Community. To learn of traditional fishing and hunting techniques, of bush foods and medicines, and the special relationship between Peninsula people and the land and the sea.

A visit to the Dampier Peninsula means entering Aboriginal land. A drive from Broome to Cape Leveque, on the northern tip of the peninsula, includes some 200 kilometres of unsealed road characterised by corrugations and sandy sections, so a four wheel drive vehicle is strongly recommended for travel and the road is not suitable for caravans. You will need to allow three and a half hours for the drive from Broome to Cape Leveque and during the summer wet season (December to April) the road will sometimes be closed to traffic.

Whilst on the Peninsula you are asked to respect the land, the culture and the privacy of local Aboriginal people. Although some communities and outstations have embraced tourism, access within the area is still restricted. It is important you observe all 'no entry' signs on private roads, to minimise visitor impact on law grounds, burial sights and traditional fishing grounds.

Please drive slowly when entering communities and do not wander uninvited into residential areas.

Distance from Broome is two hundred and twenty-five kilometres.
