Where I stayed
The beaches in Cape Leveque are huge with, once again, pristine white sand stretching for miles. The western beach is bordered by red cliffs and rocks, and the colour contrast between the sand, sea and cliffs is stunningly beautiful
Having done so many tours and day trips up the rest of the coast, we really did have a lazy time in Cape Leveque, playing on the beach in the mornings then having lazy afternoons in the tent. One day we all had a long family afternoon nap, which seemed very indulgent but much-needed.
Brad took Jamie and Zach fishing one morning, which Zach in particular really enjoyed. Brad caught a large batfish and a blue striped snapper and Zach a stripy sea perch. They came home with 2 which Brad barbecued on the terrace - tasted fantastic, and a welcome break from the limited menu of salads and sandwiches I usually come up with.
Our evenings were spent planning the Gibb River Road leg in more detail, right down to provisions needed, given the limited space we have in the 4x4.
