There are lots of conflicting stories about road conditions to Cape Leveque. Some people find it confusing when trying to decide whether to take their caravan to the top.
These mixed stories are justified. Many years ago the road was bad. Not just bad, but really bad. People who have traveled the road back then have some horrific stories that they are still telling today.
In recent years road works have been ongoing, continually improving the main road to the top. The aim is to be fully sealed within a few years. Currently the roadworks mean that even the dirt section of the road is in excellent condition and actually a very good dirt road.
With correct tyre pressures a semi off road (or even an onroad van) could easily travel this road all the way to the pearl farm at the tip.
If you want a base for your caravan that is just off the main road Cygnet Bay Pearl farm is for you. Otherwise there are several other campsites that are further from the main road giving spectacular views but require an off-road van to get there.
Once unhitched you need a 4WD vehicle to fully appreciate the beauty of the cape. The drive out to Middle Lagoon and even the short road to Kooljaman require a 4WD but are definitely worth a visit.
The colours of Cape Leveque are spectacular and what we all want to see.
The road to Middle Lagoon and Pender Bay is 4WD only
Cygnet Bay Pearl farm is easily accessible from the main road.
Beagle Bay church is a “must see”
We will treasure our memories made there.
