One Arm Point - Cities, Towns and Localities
When you continue the 4WD track a little further past Cape Leveque, you reach the community of One Arm Point, the most remote community on the Dampier Peninsula.

This unique location offers spectacular coastline, with stretchs of white sandy beaches, overlooking the waters of King Sound, where the highest Australian tides occur (late March and late April). The tides peak at 11.8 metres and drop about 1.5 m at low tide.

For those adventurous at heart, as well as swimming, snorkelling and fishing, there is also the opportunity to learn about the culture, tradition and lifestyle of the Bardi Aboriginal Community, their special relationship with the land and the sea.
 

A visit to the Dampier Peninsula means entering Aboriginal Land. The drive from Broome to Cape Leveque includes some 200 km of unsealed road (read corrugations and sandy sections). Visitors will need to allow anywhere up to 4 hours to cover the distance. During the ‘wet season’ (late September to late May) the road may be closed.

Whilst in the Dampier Peninsula region 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.

In addition to our listed online travel guide information, contact the local tourism visitor centre for your destination for more attractions, tours, local maps and other information.
