Travelling to Whale Song Campground.
To travel to Whale Song you will need a 4WD vehicle, mainly for the clearance it gives you on the sandy sections and for the toughness when encountering corrugations. The Cape Leveque Road is a partly sealed, mainly red dirt track that varies from sandy to corrugated, bumpy sections. It is maintained to a degree by the Broome shire but quickly degrades with increased traffic.
The best suggestion we give the traveller is to leave from Broome early in the morning when conditions are best. If you leave after lunch and are unfamiliar with the dirt roads then you could be in for a long drive, especially if you are towing a camper trailer. The afternoons in the Dry Season can be “still” which means increased dust and poorer visibility, which really slows the trip down. No one likes to arrive at dusk and try and set up camp.
You need to give yourself 3 hours travelling time and more if you are towing. A nice place to stop midway is to call in and check out the Beautiful Beagle Bay Church and community with shady trees, it’s a great pit stop.
To get to Whale Song you need to continue up the Cape Leveque Road and then turn left at the Middle Lagoon Road. You will spot the Whale Song sign at this turnoff. Whale Song is approximately 30 kms from this turn. Follow our signs and you will be directed to turn right and we are the third driveway on the left, signposted.
Please, always remember to carry adequate water and provisions for an emergency. There is little phone coverage on the roads, so if you breakdown, stay with your vehicle and wait for passing traffic to help. Please note Telstra is the only service provider in the bush up here.
