Broome to Cape Leveque

Jump to last reply

Hoping to travel from the USA in May, 2015 to what will be our 7th trip to Australia since the early 1980's. We obviously love this country. The beginning of our adventure will be up in the NT. We were in Darwin in the mid 1980's and I'm sure there has been a lot of change.

Ultimately, we will fly from Kununurra to Broome where we will spend a few days before heading to Perth. We will have a car rental in order to get around and thought about heading north, up to Cape Leveque. I know accommodations are limited up there and since it requires a 2 night minimum stay (is there enough to do for 2 nt stay?), we considered instead booking a tour that would take us up there and allows for a 1 night stay. That way we wouldn't have to worry about flat tires, etc. How rough is the road if you've driven on it in recent years? What sights are must sees enroute and will we spot any wildlife?

Has anyone been up this way and is it worth the drive? Have you stayed at the Koolmajan Resort and if so, what did you think of the accommodations? Was considering the deluxe safari tents or the ensuite cabins. Was wondering if anyone has had experience with either.

Last, has anyone ever used Chomley's Tours? They're the ones offering the overnight option. Have you used other companies for this tour?

If you have any great suggestions for in and around Broome, we would appreciate it.
thanks in advance. I get great suggestions from this forum.
